TADCASTER Albion manager John Deacey believes there “isn’t going to be a best 11” for his team this season.

Tadcaster’s campaign will begin on Saturday when they host Tow Law Town in the FA Cup extra preliminary round at the newly-named So-Trak Stadium (3pm).

Their Pitching In Northern Premier League east season will begin the following Saturday at Sheffield FC (3pm).

Albion finished their pre-season by winning their two final games, beating Scarborough Athletic 2-0 while also edging past Kidsgrove Athletic 2-1.

After their victory over Kidsgrove, which was sealed through a Mark Ferguson brace, Deacey implored that his team will not have a best starting line-up due to variation among other teams.

“There isn’t going to be a best 11 because we’re playing against different sides with different systems,” noted the manager.

“That’s why you have to have a squad, everyone in this squad is capable of playing in the first 11 and that’s how you want it.

“(Pre-season has) gone well, it’s given us some serious headaches if I’m honest, but they’re good headaches to have. 

“We have a squad here of around 20 people and it’s very difficult to pick an 11 out of them, but that’s what you want as a manager. 

“Me and Andy (Monkhouse, assistant manager) have got to decide which one we want to go with.”

Meanwhile, Pickering Town’s Ebac Northern League division one season started disastrously, suffering a 6-0 rout at Bishop Auckland.

Goals from Wayne Whitfield, Craig Gott, Dane Burlace, Louis Johnson and a James Risbrough brace saw the hosts sail comfortably to a win.

Tonight, Town travelled to Newcastle Benfield, who lost their opening day fixture 2-1 at Newton Aycliffe.

Elsewhere, in the Toolstation Northern Counties East division one, Selby Town lost their opening game of the season 4-0 to Rossington Main.

A brace from Ross Hannah and additional goals from Declan Slater and Adam Baskerville saw Rossington win comfortably at the Fairfax Plant Hire Stadium.

Next for Selby is a clash with Parkgate FC away from home on Saturday (3pm).
