Frickley Athletic will be looking to stretch their four-match unbeaten run and make it back to back away wins when they travel to North Wales to play Colwyn Bay in the Evo-Stik Premier League on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Karl Rose’s men can travel with some confidence after two wins and two draws from their last four games and they will be up against a team just behind them in the league with seven points from their first six matches.

A home game against Ilkeston FC next Tuesday follows and gives the Blues a further chance to climb into the top 10 in the league with the visitors two points ahead of them with three wins, a draw and two defeats so far.

Frickley have been boosted with two new signings in the shape of Callum Hartfield and Louis Bruce, although wide midfielder Brad Riley has joined Pontefract Collieries.

The son of former Sheffield United player Charlie Hartfield, Callum is a 21-year-old midfielder who joins having played previously for Hallam and Sheffield FC.

Bruce is a 21-year-old defender who, like Sam Topliss, joins on a dual registration arrangement with North Ferriby United where he progressed through the youth system there. He has also had a short spell at Shaw Lane Aquaforce at the start of this season.
