SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT – Coventry Bears 24 June

Newcastle Thunder have made five changes to their 19 man squad for this weekend’s visit of Coventry Bears to Kingston Park Stadium and will potentially offer another first senior appearance for a product of the club’s Under 19s academy.

Hooker Oliver Gowing joins the returning Mo Agoro, Jack Aldous, Conor Fitzsimmons and Remy Marginet in coming into contention for selection this weekend as Jason Payne’s side target making it four wins in a row in Betfred League 1.

Having met in atrocious conditions at the Butts Park Arena back on Good Friday, it was Thunder who took the spoils with a solid 18-32 win to maintain their run of victories over the Bears.

Tickets for Sunday’s match are available to book now by clicking here, calling 0871 2266060 or by visiting the Kingston Park Stadium box office.

Adult tickets are priced at just £6 if bought by 1pm on Sunday and Under 16s £3.

With England taking on Panama in the FIFA World Cup from 1pm, the stadium big screen will be showing all the action from Russia with a BBQ and happy hour drinks promotions running to allow fans to make it a full Sunday of sport.
