IAN FINALISES HIS SQUAD FOR OUR THIRD SEASON

As many supporters will know Ian Street has once again been very busy trying to ensure that his side is well equipped in every department and “ready to go” when the season starts tomorrow. He is always looking at other players and consequently he has looked at quite a few players in our pre season friendly games and is very close to finalising his squad. These players are listed below but don’t be surprised if one or two more names are added later if Ian thinks it necessary to do so:

OUR LAST PRE SEASON FRIENDLY GAME:

CONWY BOROUGH 1 V 4 1874 NORTHWICH SAT 1st AUGUST

1874 Northwich enjoyed a successful away day win in North Wales last Saturday as they came through a good ninety minute encounter against lively opponents and manager Ian Street will have been well pleased with the performance and perhaps more pleased to know at the final whistle that there were no additions to the already slightly worrying list of injured players.

The goal scorers for 1874 were Steve McNichol, Martin Hill, Danny Thomas and Stuart Tulloch and the longer the game went on the better the team looked overall despite the home side hitting the woodwork on four occasions.

This was a good work out for the players and a good number of 1874 supporters made the trip and were well impressed by the performance and the nice ground at Conwy
