Silksworth stunned as McGinley departs

Have your say

IT’S back to the drawing board for Silksworth Rangers following the decision of Mark McGinley to quit after just two games.

Recently, McGinley joined the management team of Darren Crann and John McLean but because of unforeseen circumstances, he has been forced to stand down.

“We are back to square one,” declared chairman David Steele ahead of tonight’s visit from Wolviston.

To compound their problems, the players who McGinley brought in are unavailable and also missing with a hamstring injury is Michael Curtis.

Manager Crann is also unavailable with work commitments and tonight, Curtis will step up and assist McLean.

Rangers are bottom of the table and Wolviston are two places ahead but there is a gap of eight points between the teams.

Wolviston manger Mark Summersgill will need to check on the fitness of Karl Barry but anticipates having a full squad available.

Sunderland West End play their game with Annfield Plain at Leyburn Grove, Houghton unable to name injured pair Warren Cassop or Gav Dorwood but Ross Kennedy comes into contention.

Annfield Plain have slipped to second from the basement although they have several games in hand on the six sides closes to them. They welcome the return of Craig Cowell from suspension.

Peterlee Town are buoyant following their five goals defeat of Silksworth Rangers at the weekend and at home to Seaton Carew have captain Michael Noble available.

Davy Laight, Anth Rogerson, Daz Davie and Liam Dunn though are all absent.

Seaton Carew, who have transferred young full-back Matty Morris to Chester-le-Street, have signed midfielder Dale Campion from Wearside League neighbours Hartlepool.

Craig Wetherill, Brian Linighan, Sam Cook and Dominic Laffin are all added to the squad.

Jarrow travel into Cumbria for their game at Cleator Moor Celtic with Chris McDonald and Jonny Tennet named but Andrew Wilkinson, Ross Toward, Daryl Turnbull and Kyle Grey are all missing.
