STEVEN Tames will play for Witton until the end of the season after the club extended a loan arrangement with Stalybridge.

The front man, who turned 25 this week, made his first start in Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at Market Drayton Town since injuring an ankle more than a month ago.

He has scored four goals in nine starts since switching from Bower Fold on a temporary deal back in October.

And Tames could renew a partnership with Rob Hopley for tomorrow’s visit of third-placed Newcastle Town in a Northern Premier League Division One South fixture.

Albion’s leading scorer is available again after completing a three-match ban he received as punishment for being dismissed in a Boxing Day draw with tenants Northwich Victoria.

Influential midfielder Paul Williams returns too following a one-match suspension.

Manager Carl Macauley reports having a full-strength squad to pick from, save for long-term injury absentee Cameron Dalton.

Visitors Newcastle, with former Witton boss Scott Dundas in charge, have recruited Ricky Bridge this week.

They also included former Albion men Niall Green, Chris Baker and Lee Cropper in the starting line-up for a 3-1 win at home to Chasetown on Tuesday.

They kick off tomorrow’s contest eight points clear of their hosts, who have seven games in hand.
