For Seaham Red Star, it had been a difficult period for the club over the festive season seeing game after game cancelled, leaving the club lacking that match day revenue.
Now, the club has had time to settle, games are being played and The Star are picking up points. And now, on Saturday, they entertain Durham City looking to make an impressive four league wins in a row.
Ex Newcastle United player, Olivier Bernard is the chairman on Durham City and his side haven't had a great time since leaving their home of New Ferens Park, back in October 2015.
The period from October to now period has not just seen the club change ground, but seen key players leave, seeing the club plummet third bottom in the table. City haven't won in the league since the October 17, 2015.
One of the players to leave is Craig Lynch, now a Red Star player. Lynch himself has been in great form in this last three game. Two goals and playing a part in goals, Lynch is now showing his true potential.
Ryan Noble, who has played for both Durham City and Red Star has seen the former Sunderland striker make the switch to Whitley Bay early last week, but it has only benefit Seaham as they had the opportunity to bring in David Paul from Easington Colliery.
Paul has made a great start to his Red Star career. Two goals and three assists in three games along with his strong arial presence – Red Star wingers Robbie Bird and David Palmer have been in fine form recently and the arrival of Paul has been key to this.
Star Manager Mark Collingwood will be confident of making it four wins in a row, something that would be a remarkable achievement to not only edge closer to hitting their target of 40 points, but to keep the momentum going to really show themselves and the Northern League, how high they can actually finish.
Red Star have had the upper hand against the visitors this season but only winning by a one goal margin, 4-3 in the league and 1-0 in the FA Vase third round qualifier.
