The Bucks go into this game following last Saturday’s defeat to Hereford.

Prior to the game, The Bucks announced the signing of Levi Andoh. Fullback Levi, was at Hereford last season, loaned from Ipswich Town.

Leading up to this weekends game, The Bucks Manager Jamie Vermiglio told us:

“The lads will be focused and ready to bounce back as we go into two very big games.

There’s a strong focus about this group and I’m sure they’ll be ready for this weekend’s difficult test.”


After losing their opening two games of the season, Blyth have picked up four points in their last two.

In their last game Blyth beat Gloucester City 2-0, McNall and Hickey the scorers.
