Saturday 21st January 2017 , Percy Park Lions travelled to Billingham in a top of the table clash . Frustratingly , the Lions only travelled with 15 players in a potentially season defining game . Similarly , in December , the Lions travelled to Alnwick , when sitting top of the Candy League , with only 15 players . Were they to fair better than they had then ?
Despite being short in numbers , the assembled side was full of quality and experience and they departed Preston Avenue in good spirits despite the dropping temperature , hoping their opponents wouldn't do a Novos (let's see if the journalistic gestapo keep that dig at last weeks events in ?) !!
Wilkinson(Mighty Jo) , Kidd , Sssssssshhhhnairn , Hedley , Saint , Sanderson , Hennessy(hopefully related to the brandy maker as I could do with a wee drop to pop in my hip flask on cold days like this one ), Lake (not the member of the 70's rock band) , Kay(brother of Steve but not son of Danny), Thorpe (Freddie brother of Harry but no relation of Gary), Caulfield(sponsored by the Ahar !)Jobson(son of Gandalf), Wilson(son of one punch), Gilmore (him of poppy eyes and skinny calfs), Baldwin ( property of Beth).
