SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT – League 1 Semi-Final

Newcastle Thunder have made three changes to their 19-man squad ahead of Sunday’s Betfred League 1 semi final against Workington Town at Kingston Park.

 Into the first of three knock out matches, Thunder welcome Jack Aldous, Joe Brown and Joel Edwards back onto the ranks as they aim to qualify for the final weekend of September’s Preliminary Final.

They will be without Dan Coates and Muizz Mustapha who miss out on this weekend’s shortlist and Matty Wright, who has been handed a four-match suspension following a high tackle in last weekend’s match against Doncaster. 

Thunder will need to make it a third consecutive home win over Town if they are to progress into the next round of the playoff matches and maintain their push for promotion to the Betfred Championship.

Tickets for Sunday’s game are available to book now by clicking here, calling 0871 2266060 (calls cost 13p per minute plus your phone company’s access charge) or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office.

Tickets booked before midnight on Saturday 21 September enjoy a £3 discount on full match day prices.
