Reds ​will​ ​fulfil​ ​their​ ​friendly​ ​at​ ​Kendal​ ​Town​ ​on​ ​Saturday​ ​(3pm)​ ​despite​ ​being​ ​down​ ​to the​ ​bare bones,​ ​squad​ ​wise.


Holidays and ​‘other’​ ​leisure​ ​activities​ ​has​ ​left​ ​them​ ​short​ ​on​ ​numbers​ ​with​ ​David Hewson,​ Gari​ ​Rowntree,​ ​Josh​ ​Calvert,​ ​Jamie​ ​Mellen,​ ​Nathan​ ​Waterston,​ ​Scott Allison,​ ​Dan​ ​Wordsworth and​ ​Sam​ ​Joel​ ​unavailable​ ​for​ ​the​ ​annual​ ​fixture​ ​at​ ​Parkside Road.

Reds​ ​have​ ​visited​ ​their​ ​south​ ​Cumbrian​ ​neighbours​ ​in​ ​each​ ​of​ ​the​ ​past​ ​five​ ​summers, winning four​ ​and​ ​drawing​ ​once​ ​in​ ​what​ ​are​ ​usually​ ​close-fought​ ​encounters.

However,​ ​the​ ​unbeaten​ ​sequence​ ​will​ ​be​ ​put​ ​to​ ​the​ ​test​ ​for​ ​a​ ​depleted​ ​squad​ ​of eleven​ ​senior players​ ​and​ ​untested​ ​reserves,​ ​albeit​ ​a​ ​welcome​ ​opportunity​ ​for​ ​the latter.

Much​ ​of​ ​Kendal’s​ ​pre-season​ ​action​ ​has​ ​been​ ​against​ ​lower-league​ ​opposition​ ​but they​ ​came unstuck​ ​at​ ​Penrith​ ​in​ ​mid-week.

Updates​ ​on​ ​the​ ​match​ ​will​ ​be​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​Paul​ ​Armstrong​ ​via​ ​the​ ​Live​ ​Scoreboard facility​ ​on the​ ​website.
