COLWYN BAY have been named this week among the three finalists for the Evo-stik North Pitch of the Year 2018 award, which is great credit to hard-working groundsman Elfyn Jones, who has had to battle against one of the wettest winters on record.
THE Seagulls will play their postponed Easter Monday home game against fifth-placed Prescot Cables on Thursday evening (April 5th, 7:45pm) and that will be the first of three home games in six days at the Four Crosses Construction Arena.
Thursday’s game is followed by a crunch fixture against sixth-place Trafford on Saturday (April 7), followed by the vist of Ossett Town in another re-arranged home game next Tuesday (April 10).
Prescot, who beat the Bay 3-1 at Volair Park on Boxing Day (top picture), will be a big test for the Bay and they are well placed to seal their place in the play-offs, leading sixth-placed Trafford by seven points and with two games in hand on them.
They were beaten 5-2 away to South Shields in their last outing, which ended a seven match unbeaten run, but Prescot have won 10 of their 18 away league games this season with only South Shields winning more.
The Bay will have Danny Andrews back for his 80th game for the club after missing the defeat at Glossop, while Will Booth could make his 75th appearance.
VOLUNTEERS are needed to act as stewards for the game against Prescot. Can anyone help out? Contact Paul Edwards on 07789 395404 or via email at email@example.com
Tadcaster Albion and Trafford are the other two finalists and award sponsors and judges Greenfields (sport turf specialists) will be visiting all three clubs over the next few weeks before unveiling the overall winner at the League’s end-of-season awards night at Blackpool’s Hilton Hotel in June.
