Northgate vs Macclesfield Parish
Saturday 9th December 10.30am
Seven days on from tasting victory, Northgate will hope for back to back wins for the first time in their history. With Audacious dispatched in a character-building fashion, Macclesfield Parish provide another opportunity for three important points that could see Clark’s men finish in the top half for Christmas.
The visitors, having played the fewest number of matches in the division so far, have played three and lost three and sit second bottom between Northgate’s other two beaten teams. Little else is known about them, although experience from Clark and Elkington for Kay Street United tells of physical encounters and a never-say-die attitude from Macc.
Assuming the game stays on with warnings of inclement weather on its way, there are few changes to the line up from last week. Clark will have Davenport between the sticks whilst Sharrock takes his place outfield. Matt Bodels returns from a loan spell in Hoylake for his first competitive action of the season, whilst Dave Tonks is the only other addition, as last week’s man-of-the-match Campbell is out with an injury, as well as absences from Thomas, Heathcote and Holden.
PLAYERS: Please be at the ground for 9.45am.
