JARROW v BILLINGHAM TOWN PREVIEW

Town head up north to Jarrow on Wednesday night for a rare midweek league fixture - the only other night match pencilled in is against Washington on September 4th. Perth Green was in immaculate condition when Town last visited back in August 2017 and similar conditions will certainly be favourable for a Town squad who have played some exquisite football during pre-season. Billingham come into the game off the back of a workmanlike 4-1 win against Ryton while Jarrow began their campaign against Crook Town, also with a 4-1 victory.

FOCUS ON JARROW:
The South Tyneside club enter their second season within the Northern League after finishing their inaugural campaign in a respectable 12th position. Town won a tight affair 1-0 at Perth Green but were far more convincing at Bedford Terrace, demolishing Jarrow 6-1. Pre season fixtures have been parochial affairs against division one clubs but they kicked off the new season at Crook Town with a convincing win. The squad contains familiar names - players who have experience in division one such as Jordan Mellish (scored an own goal against Town back in March), Peter Kane and Michael Watson has faced Town on several occasions while at Hebburn Town. Another Hebburn/Billingham Town link is Glen Hargrave, who’s stay at Bedford Terrace last season was truncated due to injury. Hargrave will be a danger if he can replicate the kind of form he often showed while playing against Town. Former Bedlington Terrier Jak Wells will be the man between the sticks!

ONE TO WATCH: JONATHAN HIRST
Extremely pacy winger and goal threat and not afraid to shoot from distance. Takes set pieces. Part of the Jarrow side that won the Wearside League and was one of their best players in the early part of last season before moving on to Tow Law Town. Back for a second spell. Already off to a good start, bagging a brace at Crook Town on Saturday.

RECENT RESULTS:
Crook Town 1-4 Jarrow (Hirst 2, Higham, Hargrave)

PRE-SEASON: SELECTED RESULTS:
Jarrow 1-6 Sunderland RCA
Jarrow 1-5 Ryhope CW
Hebburn Town 3-2 Jarrow
Whickham 1-0 Jarrow

TALKING TOWN:
Matthew Robinson may miss out due to his holidays but should be back in time for the Brandon United game on Saturday. There were no reported injuries over the weekend so the Town management will travel up the A19 with a near full strength squad. Craig Hutchinson wasted no time in gaining his first hat-trick of the season and joins former Town Striker Nicky Martin as co joint top scorers along with Easington’s Liam Adamson. Hutchinson will be aiming for the Teesside Golden boot award that is on offer at the end of the season. Matty Hughes will be pushing for a start after a fine individual strike against Ryton over the weekend.
