THE Wearside League season is barely a week old, but already there have been changes at Ashbrooke Belford House who chase a third sucessive victory at home to Leam Rangers tomorrow.
Alan Young has moved to Esh Winning and young Dominic Laws has decided to play for Lambton Street Under-18s.
Also missing for Ashbrooke’s third game of the season are Lewis Hutchinson, Dillon Holden and Adam Drysdale, but, fortunately, Stephen Bogie, David Scott, Josh Farquhar and Kieron Stoke have returned from holiday for the 2.30pm kick-off.
The Wearsiders will be aiming for a hat-trick of wins after scoring seven goals in their opening two victories.
Silksworth CW are away for the third successive game.
Vice-chairman David Steele reports that a strong side will be on duty at Boldon CA.
Joe Clayton, Michael Bunning, Leon Simmons, Liam Hodgson, Andrew Place and assistant manager Davy Clark all come into the reckoning for the visitors, whose only absentee is Glen Hargrave.
Boldon CA manager Jason Jones is ready to hand a debut to Lee Bell.
Jarrow have home advantage against Seaton Carew, with recent signing James Richardson pencilled in for his first outing. Jason Pressling will hope to come through a fitness test, but neither Peter Cane nor Finbar Lynch can play.
In a reduced league programme of four fixtures, Whitehaven will attempt to maintain an early-season surge by defeating Wolviston in Cumbria.
The home side have racked up 10 goals in two games and add Kevin Law to a strong line-up. Wolviston have midfielders Matty Watson and Daryl Tomlinson returning, together with midfielder David Johnson, who has completed a two match ban.
