Bees are hoping to tackle Ellesmere

First published in Local Sport

STUDLEY are hoping to fill the gap left by Gornal’s involvement in the FA Vase this Saturday by re-arranging their away trip to Ellesmere Rangers.

The Bees are desperate to get a game on after not kicking a ball in anger since January 12.

They were set to play their Midland Alliance rivals from the Black Country but because of Vase fixtures being heavily disrupted by the snow for the previous two weekends, Gornal are set to take on Wisbech in the competition.

As a result, Studley are hoping to organise a trip to Beech Grove in Shropshire.

Manager Lee Knight said: “After all the bad weather we’ve had, we just want to get a game on.

“Gornal’s game in the Vase takes precedence over the league so hopefully we’re playing Ellesmere.

“Saying that they’ve been hit hard by the rain so we’ll see what happens.”

Studley saw Saturday’s league game against Tipton Town and last Tuesday’s game against Sutton Coldfield in the Worcestershire Senior Cup was postponed.

The break in action means Scott Turner has also overcame an ankle injury.

Meanwhile, Danny Charlton is two weeks away from returning from a broken metatarsal.
