West Allotment Celtic vs Newcastle Benfield: Match Preview

West Allotment Celtic v Newcastle Benfield

Ebac Northern League Division One

East Palmersville Sports Pavilion

Good Friday 15th April 2022 - 12-00 kick off

Newcastle Benfield make the short journey to Palmersville on Friday lunchtime as West Allotment Celtic host Col Stromsoys side.

This will be the last away league fixture of the season with the Lions looking to secure their 7th league win on the road. For West Allotment, the fixture provides an opportunity for a 6th home win in what has been a very encouraging first season back in the first division of the Northern League.

A tight contest is anticipated with the sides sitting alongside each other in the table and although Benfield hold a two point advantage, our hosts currently retain bragging rights having won at Sam Smith’s Park back in December by the odd goal in 5.

Col and his team will be aware of the threat West Allotment offer, with Callum Larmouth in particular being a man with a fine season behind him. There are a number of former Lions in the Allotment squad who will also be keen to impress against their former club. Meanwhile for Benfield, Dennis Knight is now free of suspension. None of our longer term absentees are expected to return but it is hoped some of those with more minor knocks may have recovered sufficiently to be included in the travelling squad.

After Friday we are next in action on Wednesday evening (20th April) as another league season draws to a close with a quick return visit from Newton Aycliffe. The important First Division Cup semi final trip to Sunderland Ryhope CW follows on Saturday 23rd April.

It would be good to see a healthy support making the short trip on Friday with the lads always appreciating the backing they receive.
