THE Mariners will take a full strength side to Stalybridge Celtic on Friday night for the final pre-season game (7.30pm).
The Town management duo will decide on Friday whether to include Liam Hearn in the squad which travels to Cheshire. The Town number 10 took a kick on his Achilles during Wednesday’s friendly at North Ferriby United and was substituted as a precaution.
Simon Ford, who has now completed the formalities and signed a one-year deal with the club, will be included in the squad.
You can catch an exclusive interview with Fordy on Mariners Player later.
