Hebburn Town striker Cedwyn Scott bagged another goal for his parent club on Tuesday night, and boss Chris Beech is hopeful that the 22-year-old forward will continue to train with the Blues, despite the fact that today’s friendly with Fleetwood Town was called off due to the recent bad weather.
“It’s a shame that we lost the game because the only surface that’s actually playable at the moment is the main pitch,” he said. “We’ve stayed off it since the turn of December because we want to support the groundsman, but we did ask the question about playing the reserve game on it which we can’t do in terms of trying to look after it.
“I need to see Cedwyn play. I need to see him stretch his legs and show what he’s got under pressure against good players. We tried to reverse the fixture to Fleetwood, but they said their training pitches aren’t quite right to play the game on either.
“If we can get the game on against Rochdale next Tuesday we’ll look to play him, but we play the games at Penrith and it’s been very wet down there and the pitch is heavy.
“It’s hard, but hopefully the sun will shine and we can get that game on.”
