Five back to boost Belford

Have your say

ASHBROOKE Belford House manager Tommy Dobbing is delighted five players are able to return for tonight’s Wearside League clash against Seaton Carew at Silksworth (7.30pm), writes MALCOLM PRATT.

The Wearsiders fielded a severely depleted line-up at the weekend, but they should be much stronger tonight, with Paul Robertson, Lee Collins, Mikey Wharton, Sanvir Randavar and Martin Deacon all coming into the reckoning.

David Scott, Kyle Anderson and Mark Egglestone, however, are again sidelined.

Dobbing said: “We are mid-table and a win could move us up to eighth which, considering we haven’t been able to turn out our first-choice side for any game, would be commendable at this stage of the season.”

Willington are the only side with a 100 per cent record, which they could be hard-pressed to defend at home to Richmond Town, the only other unbeaten side.

The Hall Lane team expect Steve Howie and Adam Pinkney to be available, with James Seymour their only doubt.

Harton and Westoe again miss Shaun Edwards (calf) at home to Cleator Moor, but captain Steven Graham, Martin Nugent, David Myers and Sean Flood all return.
