Oasis Reds vs Northgate
Saturday 18th November 10.30am – SMCCFL Division 3
LOCATION (map below): MORLEY COMMON, EASTFORD ROAD, WARRINGTON, WA4 6EY
It’s been a long time since Northgate played games on consecutive weekends, and following on from the positives of the trip to Vinelife, they’re on the road again. This time it is the “local” rivals in terms of the SMCCFL: Warrington-based Oasis Reds, a strong outfit Northgate know well after defeats in a pre-season friendly and the opening round of the Charity Cup.
Clark was initially faced with selection issues a week ago, but in his bid to turn the tide on the opponents has secured two new signings in powerhouse Joe Charlton and trickster Chris Potter. There have also been late additions to the squad with Matt Hilsden and Mike Heathcote passing late fitness tests. Davenport returns in goal for the absent Sharrock, whilst Crank, Elkington and Jones also return replacing Kapasi, Campbell and Tonks. Knowing that a physical encounter is on the cards, Clark will be pleased he now has a full squad of 14 to take with him, and even more happy with the aerial threat they will carry.
PLAYERS: Please be at the ground for 9.45am. If you need a lift, please let us know.
