Newcastle Blues Star entertain Burradon & New Fordley on what will be our final game heading in to the new year. With defeat against Blyth Town on Saturday; Blue Star will be looking to put things right against an experienced New Fordley side.
Burradon & New Fordley are playing catch up in the league having played fewer games (5) and haven't played a competitive game since their 3-0 victory over Winlaton Vulcans in October.
Burradon currently sit 12th in the league one place behind Mondays hosts and Burradon will be happy to get a game under their belts having saw last weekends fixture against Alnwick Town cancelled due to the weather conditions.
I recently caught up with Newcastle Blue Star manager Steve Preen who gave an insight into Blue Stars last few games and Mondays opposition; here is what the gaffa had to say.
"After a good result against Chemfica,we dissappointed the home crowd with a lacklustre performance against Blyth Town".
Reflecting further on the Blyth game Steve told us: "We set up offensively and created enough chances to get a few goals but the luck was not with us" having hit the woodwork twice.
Its the small margins in football, but the lads have worked hard in training this week and hope to put things right against Burradon & New Fordley on Monday.
Steve moved on to Mondays opponents and said: "Burradon are an experienced and established side, but if we are more clinical we will spoil their Christmas party.
And a few words from the gaffa to the supporters: "Best wishes to everyone from the players, staff and management."
