Steven Beck will be looking to maintain his fine run of form at Northwich
Northwich Victoria v Total Network Solutions
Pre-season friendly
Sat 6 August 2005: Away - Victoria Stadium

MANAGER Ken McKenna will choose from a virtually fully-fit squad of players as TNS travel to Cheshire to face Conference North outfit Northwich Vics.
With the exception of John Leah, who underwent successful minor knee surgery on Thursday, McKenna will hope to give everyone a run-out at the new Victoria Stadium.
Missing from the last two games, Martyn Naylor, Nicky Ward and Jamie Wood are all fit again, while the prognosis on Leah is positive - fitness coach Tony McHugh reports that he has been given the all-clear to return to training after a brief rest.
Saints might have expected to meet a full strength Northwich line-up as Vics play their last friendly of the summer.
But manager Steve Burr is unable to name his best side as the Vics suffer a series of injuries - recent signing Mark Sale has a broken nose, Peter Handyside a broken rib which is still healing, Carlos Rocca has a thigh problem and Mark Devlin an Achilles heel injury.
"I shall name the strongest side available to me against TNS" said Burr."
After a series of defeats and no goals against Football League opposition, Burr was hoping Vics would sharpen up in Tuesday night's Mid-Cheshire Senior Cup final at Witton Albion, but they were beaten in a penalty shoot-out after a 2-2 draw in extra-time.
