Non-league football: Strike pair look for chance to shine
NEW strike partners Simon Everall and Danny Quinn could join forces when Stafford Rangers take on Blue Square Bet Premier Tamworth at Marston Road tomorrow (3pm).
The pair came off the bench in last week's 5-0 victory at Midland Alliance side Rocester and could be handed their chance to shine from the start as Rangers gear up for the start of their Evo-Stik Premier campaign.
Former Nantwich Town ace Everall netted four times after coming on just before the break last weekend, while ex-Hednesford forward Quinn looked lively as a second-half substitute.
Rangers boss Greg Clowes and assistant Dorian Garner have been busy building the squad.

Former players Lee Downes, Jermaine Johnson, Alex Forde and Christian Dacres are all back at Marston Road, along with defender Liam Walsh who captained Mickleover Sports last season.
Chasetown's Jimmy Turner and Telford's Courtney Pitt have also linked up along with a number of last season's squad.
One player yet to decide his future though, is teenage defender Luke George.
The 19-year-old has been on trial at Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Hyde, but could figure for Rangers against Tamworth.
Tomorrow's visitors have also been busy rebuilding and among their summer recruits is former England and Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie who is likely to make his first start for the club against Rangers.
Former Aberdeen and Leicester City striker Tommy Wright has also signed for the Lambs along with goalkeeper Tony Breeden who has moved from Kidderminster Harriers.
Today's other fixtures: Leek Town v Ilkeston Town; Nantwich Town v Altrincham; Rocester v Port Vale XI; Congleton Town v Crewe Alexandra; Kidsgrove Athletic v Norton United; Lostock Gralam v Alsager Town; Redgate Clayton v Eccleshall.
