League Cup game OFF again

Tim ChannonFirst Team

TONIGHT’S League Cup tie at Radcliffe Borough has been called off yet  again following heavy rain and an afternoon pitch inspection.

It is the fourth time the ill-fated tie  as fallen foul of the weather. The game has been provisionally re-arranged for Tuesday February 2nd, with the eventual winners due to be at home to Trafford in the third round.

The Seagulls had gained agreement with Wrexham to take young goalkeeper Kieran Wolland on loan in time for the game, and manager Kevin Lynch was also planning to use the game as a chance to draft three members of the successful reserve side into the match squad.

The 19-year-old Wolland, who was previously with Blackburn Rovers and Accrington Stanley and has had a couple spells on loan at Prestatyn, comes on a month’s loan following the injury to Shaun Pearson.

The three reserves called up were Adam Carpenter, Aaron Boyle and Sean Sheridan, and the manager said before the postponement: “Its an opportunity to give a chance to some of the reserves who have deserved it. They will continue to train with the first team and that sends out a message to the other lads in the Reserves.”
