Thurlow Nunn ECL Premier Division
Saturday 17th March 2018
Kick Off @ 3:00pm
The pitch has passed an inspection so this afternoon’s game is ON.
Lance was delighted with the strength of character and determination shown by the team at Godmanchester on Wednesday as we battled hard to win a big three points despite being down to 10 men for an hour after Max York’s first half red card. The skipper will be available tomorrow but the Gaffer may be without Lee Smith after the midfielder picked up a groin problem late on in that game on Wednesday. Shaun Jenkins is definately out but both Charlie Brown and Mirko Garcia will be involved in the squad as we look to consolidate our 3rd place position in the table and keep pushing those teams around us.
Kirkley are in decent form at the moment and have picked up some good results in a run that has seen them take 18 points from their last 10 games, a run that has included wins over Stowmarket and Wroxham and an impressive draw at Coggeshall last time out.
Our meeting here at The Glassworld in August saw the points shared with Lee Smith’s brace not enough to secure all three points as the game ended all square at 2-2.
Driving time from The Glassworld Stadium approx: 1 hour 45 mins (81 miles)
