Newcastle Thunder will look to freshen their lineup for Sunday’s League 1 Cup quarter-final against North Wales Crusaders (KO 3 pm), after announcing an 18 man squad with three changes from last week’s win over South Wales Ironmen.
Following the victorious conclusion to Northumbria University’s BUCS league season, Mick Mantelli has called Lewis Young, Liam McAvoy and Paddy Hargreaves into the pool from which he will pick Sunday’s team.
Sunday’s game at Kingston Park Stadium sees a re-run of last year’s Kingstone Press League 1 Shield final, in which Thunder took a 31-26 victory and the return of former Thunder assistant coach Mike Grady. Who will be plotting the home side’s downfall having taken the reins at the Crusaders in the off-season.
