North Wales Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray has named a 21-man squad for the League 1 opener at London Skolars.

Murray only has two players unavailable for selection, with Tommy Johnson serving a two-match suspension and Dave Eccleston set for a spell on the sidelines.

Patrick Ah Van, Cam Brown, Ben Morris and George Roby will all be hoping to make their full debuts for Crusaders, while Alex Eckley, Callum Hazzard and Jono Smith are back for their second spell at the club.

The likes of Jordy Gibson and Gav Rodden had started the 2020 campaign well before it was cut short and will be aiming to impress again once the new season gets underway.

Karl Ashall, Brad Brennan, Earl Hurst, Rob Massam, Matt Reid and Warren Thompson – all familiar faces to North Wales fans – are also in the 21.
