Albion return to training

Ryton & Crawcrook Albion’s first-team squad have returned to training as they begin their preparations for the upcoming Ebac Northern Football League season.

With the 2022-23 league season set to start at the end of July, Manager Daniel Iredale and his coaches put the squad through their paces for the first time on Saturday since their Ernest Armstrong Cup-winning campaign came to a close just 36 days ago.

Along with regular training sessions, Albion’s pre-season includes friendlies at Alnwick Town (2nd July), Edinburgh United (9th July), Sunderland RCA (12th July) and Burradon & New Fordley (16th July) before they host neighbours Winlaton Community in the final test at Kingsley Park on 22nd July.

The new Division 2 season is scheduled to kick off on 30th July with fixtures set to be released at 9am on 24th June.
