Two in as game called off

Frickley Athletic

THE Blues eased the woe of another postponed fixture by bringing in two new faces to Westfield Lane.

The scheduled visit of FC United of Manchester last Saturday was called off due to a frozen pitch, which also cast doubt over Frickley’s home clash with Whitby Town on Tuesday night.

Boss Peter Rinkcavage will be keen to draft in new signings Mark Hotte and Lewis Nightingale for the relegation battle ahead, starting with a trip to their former club Ossett on Saturday.

Hotte made 65 appearances for Oldham Athletic before two spells with Scarborough where he turned out 165 times in the Conference. The 32-year-old defender has also turned out for York, Droylsden, Vauxhall Motors, Farsley, Bradford Park Avenue and Halifax before latterly joining Ossett.

Nightingale is a 20-year-old midfielder who came through the academy at Huddersfield Town before his release at the end of last season.

He previously had loan spells with Wakefield and Salford City and has played for both Bradford Park Avenue and Ossett this season.

Rinkcavage has told winger Danny Simpson he is free to find another club.
