SOUTH SHIELDS v SUNDERLAND RCA, TUESDAY, DEC 18th

Post by passtheball » Sun Dec 16, 2012 10:23 pm

The Mariners are at home to Sunderland RCA this Tuesday evening December 18th, kick off at 7.30pm in an Ebac Northern League fixture, with weather and pitch conditions most hopefully permitting, the forecast is OK, and fingers crossed the pitch will have dried out sufficient to allow the game to go ahead. Following the appearances of both Ramsey and Soulsby during Saturday's friendly, it is greatly hoped that both these two players will be featured during the game, and both will be as new players having been out with serious injuries for four months for the former and longer for the latter with broken tibula and fibula bones. So if all is OK, there will be a warm welcome from the Filtrona faithful to see both these important players back in Shields colours. As with new signings Winter in goal, and in defence Mellish, Lay, Renshaw and also Clarke if recovered from his recent illness, all will give management options and choices previously limited. Up front the presence of Ramsey will give a boost and help the forwards to get back onto the goal standard. Chapim has also returned home for a months holiday to Portugal in the sun which will do him no harm at all. Points are now precious as the half way mark in the season as Skip corrected me is almost upon us, and the clock is really ticking, so we hope to see something of the Shields we know and have missed for a long time in this game. No doubt there will be plenty of encouragement with old faces on the field returning and new faces getting to know each other. An entertaining game is expected and much looked forward to, and most hopefully the right result to get us all into the Christmas spirit.
Sunderland RCA. P9. W4. D3. L2. F15. A12. Total GD -11. League position 17th. with 24 points from 21 games.
Form table : 24th, with 2 points from the last 6 games.
South Shields HOME : P10. W2. D1. L7. F14. A29. Total GD - 45. League position 24th, with 10 points from 20 games.
Form table : 22nd, with 3 points from the last 6 games.
Of very much added interest also on Tuesday evening, will be the results of games involving both Norton and Billingham Town, Shields should need no motivation to do what is required.

COME ON THE MARINERS =D> =D> =D>

Will keep all 'in the 'loop' re ground prospects and any decision either way - on/off as soon as info is received, hopefully we will have a game this evening, but with overnight rain cannot be too sure. [-o< [-o< [-o<

At the time of posting I'd say on, pitch while not great is playable.

However any rain between now and kickoff and game will be in doubt.
