Pegram, Gordon bolster Seaham Red Star

Have your say

SEAHAM Red Star hope to make home advantage count against Wearside League leaders Willington in the first qualifying round of the FA Vase tomorrow.

But secretary Kevin Turns reports that Star have selection worries.

Adam Drysdale cannot play and doubts surround the fitness of Craig Watson and Michael Turnbull. Fortunately, Alan Pegram has completed a ban and Kevin Gordon is also available.

“We will be very wary of Willington, who have a 100 per cent record in the Wearside League,” observed Turns.

Birtley visit Cumbrians Celtic Nation. Despite losing to Chester-le-Street on Tuesday, boss Scott Oliver claims his side played their best football of the season.

He hopes to complete the signing of Luke Wilson ahead of the game. James Allsopp also comes into his plans, but Kevin Dixon is playing cricket.

Jarrow Roofing have Ian Dixon and Danny Carson back against Brandon.

Tow Law bring in Michael Hall, Michael Stothard and Alan Herbert against Penrith, when Scott Brassell, a new signing from Brandon, could be involved.

Hebburn Town go to Holker Old Boys without Paul Gardner, but Chris Jewels and Mark Rasmussen return.

Consett have Andrew Cuthbertson, Carl Piecha, Ian Davison and Scott Martindale all ruled out for the visit of Alnwick. Manager Kenny Lindoe could hand a debut to Harrison Davies, who was with Sunderland RCA last season.

North Shields include Andy Hay and Stuart Wright for the first time this season at West Yorkshire hosts Liversedge.
