Frank Sinclair is calling for Colwyn Bay fans to turn out in force for Saturday’s home game against Blue Square Bet….
….North bottom four rivals Corby Town.
It could be a massive day for the Seagulls in their fight for survival in the Conference North, as victory would lift them to within four points of Corby with two games in hand, and could also put them within six points of fifth-bottom Histon (who travel to play-off chasing Harrogate Town) with FOUR games in hand.
“A win would put survival firmly back in our own hands so it is obviously a massive game. We all know what is at stake and it would be lovely if we could get a good crowd in to really get behind us,” said Sinclair.
“Having that 12th man could make all the difference and I think the lads deserve that after two great performances in two very tough away games over the last twelve days.”
New signings Shelton Payne and James Ellison will both be in the squad – and so will the returning Fraser McLachlan.
Out of the game, however, are John McKenna with a recurrence of a hamstring injury and defender Robbie Williams, who has been given permission to talk to Blue Square Premier Hyde after they put in seven days for him.
Loanee Arthur Gnahoua is involved for the last time before going back to Macclesfield Town, but Sinclair is hoping to extend Charlie Joyce’s loan spell from Southport until the end of the season.
“Charlie, whose initial one month loan runs out next weekend, has had a great impact both in the dressing room and on the field and if we could get him until the end of the season it would be great,” said Sinclair.
“Arthur has done well for me. He is a bright young talent who I think has a big future in the game, but he probably needs a bit more time to fully mature.”
