Another wash-out for Colliers
Ashington FC were left kicking their heels for a second consecutive Saturday when their scheduled home match against Consett was called off on the morning due to a waterlogged surface, writes Brian Bennett.
The previous weekend, the Colliers were sidelined when their away fixture to Sunderland RCA fell victim due to the incessant rain.
This match has been rescheduled for Wednesday December 18.
However Woodhorn Lane manager Ian Skinner has turned the situation to his advantage as he explained: “It’s been frustrating not having played over the past two weeks but the players have been working hard in training on maintaining their fitness levels. They too have been disappointed with the call offs.”
