This week sees Norton being made to travel to Jarrow and Shildon travel to Shields for midweek games, playing in a national competition with both sets of players and management having finished a shift at work. Surely in the interests of the integrity of this competition and in the interests of all four teams these games should have been played yesterday when everyone involved is fresh and the likelihood of players working is reduced.
Shildon played Newton Aycliffe in a FA Vase replay midweek last season...did that threaten the integrity of the competition?
Don't see what the issue is personally, NL teams play each other all the time midweek...in the NL & in Vase & FAC replays (even Penrith)...
