Normal service resumes for Steve Preen

Have your say

FOR Steven Preen, it was not so much a case of him stamping his authority as he carried out a spot of first footing at Woodhorn Lane on Saturday – but more a case of a proven striker resuming normal service.

As Preen reaches the autumn of his footballing career, he nevertheless continues – just like Mattie Moffat at West Auckland; Anthony Shandran at Bedlington and Gavin Cogden at Spennymoor – to be a nemesis to Ashington.

Shudder to contemplate the Colliers facing Preen at Hallowe’en as he would surely haunt them again, yet on Saturday his 72nd minute equaliser could have been termed as being a ghost from the Christmas past.
