Gloucester City will kick-off 2014 tomorrow with a Skrill North fixture against Bradford Park Avenue.\r\n\r\nAfter three consecutive postponements after a hard-fought 1-0 victory away at local rivals Worcester City, Dave Mehew’s squad will be fully rested.\r\n\r\nLoan signings Connor Waldon and Zack Kotwica have both headed back to their respective parent clubs, Swindon Town and Cheltenham Town, after impressive spells with the Tigers, particularly Waldon who notched up seven goals in 10 appearances.\r\n\r\nThis gives a priceless opportunity to young striker’s Scott Wilson and Joe Parker, who is now a Newport County player on-loan to City for the rest of the season, to show their worth up front.\r\n\r\nInfluential midfielder Lewis Hogg is now nearly full fitness after a 9 week spell out injured, although Tom Webb will likely return next week against Stalybridge Celtic.\r\n\r\nSaturday’s opponents Bradford Park Avenue defeated the Tigers on a blustery, and bitterly cold, day in November that Mehew would rather forget.\r\n\r\nIn the last game between the two played at Whaddon Road, City were victorious 1-0; a scoreline that would suit the club nicely!\r\n\r\nThere will be full match commentary on Severn Sport, live match updates on Twitter (@GCAFCofficial) and goal updates on Facebook. \r\n\r\nYou’ll also be able to download Saturday’s match programme from the official website from 2pm tomorrow: http://www.gloucestercityafc.com/?page_id=2697
