Another big day at CA14 2DT

3 months ago By Paul Armstrong

Reds conclude their thirtieth season of Northern Premier League football on Saturday with yet another important fixture.

Already assured a play-off berth following Tuesday’s success over Ilkeston, Reds still need a victory to improve on their current fourth position.

Visitors Sutton Coldfield Town travel north with their own agenda, as they too need the points to stay in the Premier Division.

Whilst we will be keeping one eye on the games at Spennymoor Town (v. Barwell) and Stourbridge (v. Nantwich Town), our guests will be keen to know what is happening at Coalville Town who host their relegation rivals, Corby Town.

A tense, nervous afternoon for both clubs and, although it won’t be intentional, we could rubber-stamp Sutton Coldfield’s relegation or they could deny us a home tie in the play-offs.

Back in August, our clash in the Midlands finished 1-1 with Tom Kilifin opening the scoring for Reds and Luke Rodgers levelling matters ten minutes later.

Without a home draw all season, could this match also finish all square? If that happens, it might not be of any good to either club.

Reds management have sensibly rotated the squad in recent games, a luxury we have never really experienced in the past. But injuries to Dan Wordsworth and Jake Simpson restricted their options on Tuesday.

The fitness of both will be assessed ahead of the 3pm kick off.

Sutton Coldfield haven’t travelled well this season, another worrying statistic, with just two wins and four draws obtained on the road.

After the game, the first team player of the year presentations will take place in the Social Club and all supporters, of course, are welcome.

Regarding the supporters’ award, ten different players polled votes.

There will also be an award for the first team’s Young Player of the Year and, obviously, the coveted Players’ Player of the Year accolade.

Please come and show your appreciation and meet those who have worn the shirt with pride throughout this memorable season.
