Ashington to face Spartans
Ashington will face their sternest test in pre season warm up matches when they come face to face with neighbours Blyth Spartans at Woodhorn Lane on Saturday (July 20).
To date the Colliers have secured victories in all three games against Durham City, Bedlington Terriers and Bootle and manager Ian Skinner will be eager to see his revamped squad pit their wits against Lee Clark’s side:
Skinner said they already had a commitment to travel to Lytham on July 20 when Blyth Spartans offered a game. “ We spoke to Lytham to see if we could move the fixture – which we have - and they were very understanding and I thank them . It may well be that we can work something out and travel to play Lytham in the future.”
