MATCH PREVIEW: The A66 derby, a welcome run-out

It’s not often we welcome our good friends from Penrith for a friendly in December but things are done a bit differently this year.

In an effort to keep the teams ticking over as we await the green light for a restart, both managers will be keen to give their respective squads as much game time as possible.

Penrith last played in the league on the 4th November before Tuesday’s friendly v. Carlisle City.

Prior to our Trophy tie at Nantwich on Tuesday, we hadn’t played since the end of October with the last home game nearly a fortnight before that.

We certainly looked ‘ring-rusty’ in the early stages at Nantwich but, by the end, we were the dominant team and the 3-1 defeat was a little harsh to say the least.

Four months ago, we met at Frenchfield in a belated pre-season outing when the 6-2 score line finished in our favour and the weather was much warmer than it will be this weekend!

The score line may be irrelevant but try telling that to Danny Grainger or David Hewson or the numerous Penrith players who previously played for Reds and the Penrith lads currently in the Workington squad.

It’s Saturday, it’s match day (of sorts) and we all crave that winning feeling for a few hours after the game.

Admission for the game will be by ticket only with no cash transactions at the turnstiles. Tickets can be purchased up until kick-off time from the Borough Park office.

Kick-off is at 12:00
