AFC New Fordley v Percy Main, Saturday April 13th '19

By Norman de Bruin

Nearly there.....

Our final away game of the season, this Saturday, which will see The Main head to AFC New Fordley, who play at Annitsford Welfare, (NE23 7RB) for the usual 2:30 kick off.

The sides met at Purvis Park on 29th September last year in a largely (and very unusual for us) pretty dour 0-0 draw, hopefully this weekend's game will provide better entertainment.

Last time we travelled to New Fordley was for the final game of our 1st division championship winning season, almost 4 years ago (18th April '15) when the home side played at the Willie John Sams Centre (don't go there this week!) and Percy came away with a 1-0 win thanks to Micky Haley's 68th minute header from a Curtis Miller free kick.

4 players remain in the Percy Main squad that started that game, Rob Rodgerson, Rob Watson, Redmond Cockburn and Adam Green.

Fordley who sit a place above us in the table, but having played 3 games fewer, have a few ex Main men in their ranks, including the McCreedy brothers, Ian Lee who figured for us over 10 years ago, Nicky Whitelaw who has played a game apiece for the sides, the sensible Dean Ellis and the not so sensible Jordan Miller.....

Who can forget that home game during the 2013-14 season when we were 3-1 down to Northbank Carlisle and going into the final minutes were seemingly dead and buried.....
Yet Miller popped up with a brilliant couple of goals in injury time to save the day and rescue a highly unlikely point........and got himself sent off.....

Should be a canny game tomorrow anyway, get along to support if you're able!

Refreshments on site along with the post match grub.....
