FORMER Annan Athletic striker Phil Storey is set to make his Carlisle City debut at Whitley Bay A.

Storey scored nine goals in 20 games for the Galabank side before moving on to Longtown, Gretna 2008 and Celtic Nation. The Sky Blues will be without Steven Rooke and Craig Cherry while the Seahorses are bolstered by a number of players making their return from the treatment table.

New Percy Main boss Shaun Galbraith takes charge for the trip to bottom side Rutherford with Michael Crane, who signed this week from Walker Central, expected to go straight into the side and a number of fresh faces may follow him to Purvis Park.

Shankhouse travel to leaders Amble United without Chris Armstrong, Ant Moran and Chris Moir while Lee Gustard, Mark Nicholson, Jon Scott and Mark Richardson are all out with long-term injuries. United’s Adam Shanks is out due to suspension.

Seaton Delaval boss Michael Jeffels is set to swing the axe after back-to-back defeats. The Red Devils are on the road to Harraby United; new signing Joe Danquah is expected to feature.

Ross Symington is hoping to come back from injury and Kevin Westphal and Alex Redfern return immediately to the team but the club were rocked as Celso Anjos’ MRI scan showed he requires an operation and probably at least 12 months out of action.

Ashington Colliers defender Iain Nickalls and midfielder Joe Moscrop are both unavailable whilst Richie Brown faces a fitness test for the game at Wallsend Town, who are without the suspended duo Dekka Graham and Steven Matthews.

Blyth Town’s John Iveson misses the game against Heaton Stannington as he sits out the second of a three-match ban while Killingworth Sporting’s Matthew Speedie also doesn’t appear due to disciplinary measures in the clash at Walker Central.
