Frickley Athletic are set to take a breather before a hectic spell coming up that will largely determine whether they can push further up the Evo-Stik Premier League table after breaking into the top half in recent weeks.

Karl Rose’s men have been left without a game this weekend as scheduled opponents Nantwich Town are involved in the semi-finals of the FA Trophy.

Tuesday night’s game against Ashton United was their last for 11 days as they do not return to action until Saturday, March 26 when at home to Colwyn Bay (3pm).

That will be the start of a busy run-in to the end of the season when the Blues twice face four games in eight days and also have a semi-final to arrange in the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup.

Frickley have confirmed that it has agreed that Shaw Lane Aquaforce can play two Evo-Stik First Division South fixtures at the SW Jackson Utilities Stadium.

This is due to the unavailability of Shaw Lane’s ground on the dates in question. The matches are Aquaforce’s fixtures against Rugby Town this Saturday and against Carlton Town on Saturday, April 9.
