West Auckland await Whickham

This weekend we make the trip down to the south of Durham to take on West Auckland Town in the EBAC Northern League.

The hosts sit in a healthy 8th position in the league although they have lost their first two games of the calendar year.

West are very much a team that like to play at home with 26 of their 34 points coming at Darlington Road this season, and they’ve also scored 11 goals in their last 3 home games.

Amidst numerous postponements of games against Hebburn Town, Whickham have found their feet under new manager Lee Haldane in 2023.

A point at Sunderland RCA and three against Tow Law Town have got the Lang Jacks off to a good start this year.

When the two sides met back in August at The Glebe, Whickham were 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Scott Robson and Garon Garside.

Full back Tom Howard could make his 100th appearance for the club this weekend.

Saturday 21st January – 3pm kick off – Darlington Road

Adults – £6

Concessions – £4
