Northern Football League Divison One – Whicham Football Club Vs Sunderland Ryhope CW

Whickham welcome seventh place Ryhope to The First Mortgage Glebe after picking up their first three points since August last time out.

The Lang Jacks kick off at 3pm tomorrow hoping to use home advantage, but won’t underestimate Ryhope who have one win in their last seven outings.  

Whickham will need to be weary of Ryhope striker James Ellis who is the league’s second top goalscorer after scoring six goals in as many games.

Captain Ryan Peareth will miss the game after his sending off against West Allotment Celtic, manager Mark Convery otherwise has a fully strength team to choose from.

We’re expecting an evenly matched contest with Ryhope sitting only four points ahead of Whickham in the league.

However after a renewed confidence boost and a mid-week rest Whickham will be hoping to send their supporter’s home with back to back victories for the first time since August.

Tickets are currently on sale via the club’s website or alternatively at the gate on match day – Adults £6.00 – Concession – £3.00.
