There are two full debuts among the three changes that Darlington have made for this morning’s Boxing Day game at Norton & Stockton Ancients.

Jonny Davis and Nathan Thomas are both in the starting XI for the first time, though both came off the bench in the draw last week against Spennymoor Town.

Midfielder Davis joined recently from Hebburn Town and he replaces Craig Gott, while Thomas, who is on loan from Sunderland, replaces Amar Purewal.

Also in the starting XI is Adam Nicholls and he comes in for Chris Emms.
Purewal and Emms are both subs, as are loan players Johnny Burn and Michael Sweet.

Quakers’ goalkeeper today is Ian Myers, formerly of Brandon.
In the Norton side is player-manager Andy Campell, the former Middlesbrough striker.
