The Northern Football League

....Sonny Andrews will take some of the pressure off his fellow striker Andy Johnson.
Bishops have completed the transfer of Andrews from league rivals Spennymoor Town, where he won their `golden boot` last season, and he will team up with Johnson, who was the top scorer in the Northern League last season with thirty-nine goals.
"AJ might just be more of a marked man this season because of his goalscoring record,” said Myers. “We needed to bring somebody in who can be just as much a threat, so if defenders are keeping their eyes on one, then the other might be able to get in.
"Sonny has been top scorer wherever he's played, at Shildon, Norton & Stockton Ancients and Spennymoor so he will give us more firepower."
Andrews' arrival closely follows those of Jamie Harwood, Kieran Megran, Chris Renshaw and Carl Hewitt, and Myers now feels that Bishops can finish in the top six after finishing eighth last season.
"I'll be happy to finish in the top six," he said. "I don't think we've quite got a strong enough squad yet to finish in the top three. If all our players stay fit, then we can do well, but how many times does that happen? There's going to be forty-six league games to play, plus at least four cup ties, so there's going to be a lot of demands on them. Our bench is stronger than last season, but we need more matchwinners.
"I can't see past Spennymoor for league champions. They look as strong as they were last year, and the only thing that might stop them is a run in the Vase.
“It'll be interesting to see how Darlington do, but like everybody else, they're going to find it tough. There are some very good teams in the league this year."
