Easington Colliery keen for game with Houghton Town in the Wearside League

Have your say

EASINGTON Colliery are anxious for tonight’s Wearside League game against Houghton Town to go ahead at Welfare Park.

Secretary Alan Purvis said: “We have played only 21 games while some clubs have managed as many as 26, so we have quite a bit of catching up to do. I’m fairly confident that we’ll get tonight’s match played.”

Easington have manager Andy Colledge back from Australia, but miss keeper Joe Atherton. Left-back Chris Hall and midfielder Chris Tarn need fitness tests.

Houghton have only one injury concern, in Jamie Clark.
