Kay Street United vs Northgate
Saturday 23rd September 10.30am – SMCCFL Division 3
After a week’s rest, Northgate are back in action for their first ever away game in this top of the table clash. Having topped the table for seven days, Northgate found themselves falling as their opponents took advantage of being the only game last week and pulled off an excellent 2-0 home victory against Oasis Reds.
Travelling back to their former stomping ground, Clark and Elkington – making his first appearance since his testimonial in pre-season – will be eager to put on a show against their former teammates. But with both clubs knowing much about each other after a 1-1 draw in August, it is sure to be a tense affair, especially with both teams coming in off the back of clean sheets.
Keen to follow on from their 12-0 demolition job two weeks ago, Clark has the luxury of naming the same back four plus the addition of Broomhall returning from injury. Midfield options are aplenty, with Slade, Morgan, Thomas and Hat-trick Heathcote all available again as well as Elkington and debutant Ali Kapasi. Mark Roberts is also set to make his first appearance having overcome a groin injury sustained during Tough Mudder. Sharrock returns in goal after his previous goal scoring appearance, hoping for another strong performance against the Streeters.
MANAGER: Jonny Clark
PLAYERS: Be at the ground for 9.45am. If you need a lift let us know. The game will be on Astro so bring appropriate boots (mounded studs / blades ideal).
