Pair give Bradford Park Avenue boost for Boston trip
Bradford Park Avenue face a difficult away game in the Skrill North tomorrow night but they will be confident as they head to Boston United.
John Deacey’s men have hauled themselves into the top half of the table after beginning the season with back-to-back defeats. They also have players returning from injury and suspension to bolster their squad.
Deacey said: “It will be a tough game at Boston, they always are, but we have two players back with Adam Clayton and Scott Maxfield both having served their three-game bans.
“The rest that have been out with little knocks should be all right. The only player out should be Jordan (Deacey, double fracture of the arm).
“We are on a little run of seven games unbeaten now, so we will be looking to go there and compete.”
A win at fifth-placed Boston, who beat Guiseley 3-0 in Mark Bower’s first game in charge, could lift Avenue to seventh.
Meanwhile, there was another departure from Nethermoor today when the Lions announced that assistant manager Chris Holland has left.
The club said that it had been considering options since appointing Bower as Steve Kittrick’s successor. The process included a review of management structures and as a result Holland had stepped down.
Senior players will assist Bower and Martin Stringfellow until a new assistant is appointed.
Elsewhere tomorrow night, Farsley are at home to Padiham in the Evo-Stik Division One North, while Thackley and Liversedge have home games in the Toolstation Northern Counties East Premier Division, hosting Maltby Main and Basford United respectively.
Brighouse Town’s game in the same division is shelved as scheduled hosts Parkgate face an FA Vase replay on Wednesday.
