NB1 – Round 19 preview

Paul Treso and Chris Barrett  preview the NB1 fixtures for the final match day of the year. As the teams prepare for long winter’s nap (and usual transfer window shakeup), our preview duo will attempt to give the casual (and not-so-casual) NB1 observer some insight into this weekend’s action. Paul: Chris, it’s beginning to look like Christmas. Not a creature was stirring, not even Marton Eppel in front of the goal… but I’ll stop....
