SILKSWORTH CREW AIM TO TAKE BOLDON’S CUP SCALP

TWR BIFOLDS WEAR­SIDE LEAGUE: HOSTS DE­TER­MINED TO MAKE IM­PACT IN MONKWEAR­MOUTH CUP TIE

Sunderland Echo - - Football -

Silksworth CW head into to­mor­row’s Monkwear­mouth Char­ity Cup tie at home to Boldon CA in con­fi­dent mood (2.30pm).

The Wear­siders, given a boost by last week’s Shipown­ers Cup tri­umph against Cox­hoe Ath­letic, have another new sign­ing in their squad this week, with mid­fielder Josh Far­quhar now avail­able.

There could be a fur­ther boost for boss An­drew Sto­b­bart, with de­fend­ers Josh Perry and Ma­son Bur­ton re­turn­ing from work­ing away and in­jury re­spec­tively.

As­sis­tant man­ager Will Crew said: “It was good to get a win un­der our belt last week­end in the cup game ver­sus Cox­hoe Ath­letic.

“We look forward to build­ing on that per­for­mance and try­ing to progress in another cup com­pe­ti­tion.”

Boldon CA’s new ar­rival, mid­fielder Robert Hall, looks likely to start against his for­mer club.

Boldon CA man­ager Paul Mossa will have mid­field­ers Dan Nolan and Frankie Hucks avail­able, af­ter both missed out be­cause of work com­mit­ments last week.

How­ever, he will have to do with­out wing-back James Pick­er­ing, who is hav­ing treat­ment on a foot in­jury and could be out for 10 weeks.

Sun­der­land West End en­ter­tain Red­car Ath­letic in the TWR Shipown­ers Char­ity Cup at Ford Quarry (2.30pm), with a semi-fi­nal place up for grabs.

As­sis­tant man­ager Dar­ren Lid­dle said: “We are strug­gling with a few in­juries, in­clud­ing the loss of Nathan Cum­mings, who broke his leg in Wed­nes­day night’s match.

“Reece Thomp­son will be avail­able again, along­side An­thony Ross, who will be back af­ter a ham­string in­jury. Hope­fully we’ll get back on top af­ter a few poor re­sults lately.”

Red­car are likely to make a num­ber of changes to the side which lost 2-1 against Hartle­pool last Satur­day. David Abel, Lance Skel­ton and Sam Web­ster all missed that game, while the likes of Michael Wood­house, Chris Bivens and Daniel Draz­dauskas were rested on the bench.

Goal­keeper Jor­dan Lowrie re­turned to ac­tion last week af­ter re­cov­er­ing from his bro­ken hand, but 16-yearold deputy Dan Simp­kin may still travel as cover.

Hartle­pool host Leam Rangers in the first round, with skip­per Matty Gard­ner, Lee Jones and Ash­ley Clark all ex­pected to re­turn. How­ever, Luke Nay­lor looks like miss­ing out af­ter re­ceiv­ing a bad gash to his leg.

Leam have An­thony Brewis and Christo­pher Lowther sus­pended. Ewan Vasey, Ben Miller and Shaun Bell should re­turn fol­low­ing in­jury.

Har­ton skip­per Ja­son Pressling is miss­ing with a knee in­jury and fel­low de­fender Michael Ste­wart is away.

Mid­field trio of Neil Robb, Nick Pain and Jean-Pierre Par­ra­cho are all miss­ing, but new sign­ing Andy Hill is avail­able.

De­fender Jack Fawcett, mid­field­ers Cory and Jor­dan Fen­wick and strik­ers Shaun Steav­ens and Takadzwa Ma­woko are also back.

Shields’ Re­serves, beaten by Cox­hoe Ath­letic in mid­week, have a full squad to choose from.
