Consett’s Boxing Day trip to Penrith has been switched to a new date and kick-off time

Consett will no longer travel to Penrith on Boxing Day, after changes were agreed to the Northern League’s festive fixture schedule.

We were due to make the long trip to Frenchfield Stadium at 3pm on Saturday, December 26, for a 3pm kick-off.

But after consultation between the clubs and the league, the game will now take place at 1pm on Monday, December 28, which is also a bank holiday.
