Rescheduled League fixture

Tim ChannonFirst Team

THE Seagulls have a change of home fixture on Saturday October 14 when we should have been playing Ossett Town.

That game has now been postponed following Ossett Town’s Emirates FA Cup replay victory this week. The Yorkshire side will now be playing Solihull Moors in the fourth qualifying round of the cup.

As a result, the Evo-stik League have scheduled Colwyn Bay to be at home to Tadcaster Albion on October 14 (3pm kick off) in a game brought forward from Saturday November 4th.

 

* THIS Saturday (October 7) is NonLeague Day, as there are no Premier League or Championship games being played due to the international break, and the Evo-stik League will be holding fundraising and kit collections for their official charity Sports Traider.

To support the charity’s mission of helping more disadvantaged children and young people in the UK get involved in sport, all 68 clubs are holding bucket collections among fans. As Colwyn Bay are away at Ramsbottom on Saturday, the club plan to support the event with a bucket collection at next Tuesday’s (October 10) home league game against Droylsden.

A mountain of unwanted kit and sporting equipment has already been collected by clubs and their fans for Sports Traider over the last two seasons.

Urging clubs and supporters to pull out all the stops for 2017-18, EVO-STIK League chairman Mark Harris said:  “I’ve been very proud to help our official charity do so much good work over the last couple of years thanks to the great efforts and generosity of all our clubs and their fans, players, volunteers and officials.

 “I’d urge everyone to really get involved and make this our proudest season yet helping people close to all our hearts, children and young people disadvantaged in life through no fault of their own.”

Founded in 2009 in Bedford by Lance Haggith, the 2010 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Unsung Hero winner, Sports Traider is dedicated to helping UK youngsters discover and fulfil their sporting potential, whatever their background, ability or disability.
