We welcome back our dear friends Tynedale to the Avenue. This is a match where Dale is very well supported as a friend once observed, as all supporters are shouting “Come on Dale”. Something must give in this encounter. Wharfedale have won their last 5 home matches whilst Tynedale have not lost an away match since their last visit to a Wharfedale club, our beloved neighbours Otley, on 29th October.
The match is vital for the Greens as a win would increase the modest gap between us and the relegation zone and give some breathing space. It is therefore essential that the shed and the stand are full and that the ramparts of the fortress are fully manned with as much noisy, vocal support that the faithful can muster.
Kick off is 2pm on Saturday. Arrive early and grab a beer and then watch the first half of the Forester’s match vs Tynedale 2nds which kicks off at 1.15!
The selected team is as follows: -
Harry Bullough; Robbie Davidson, Tom Davidson, Jamie Guy, Scott Jordan; Tom Barrett, Philip Woodhead; Adam Howard, Dan Stockdale, Toms Asejevs, George Hedgley, Richard Rhodes, Rob Baldwin (c), Lewis Wilson, Josh Burridge
Replacements: - Jordon Poole, Ian Larkin, James Huck, Jack Kitching, James Tincknell
