LOCAL FOOTBALL: Beverley switch this weekend’s cup game

Beverley Town have switched their East Riding Senior Cup quarter-final tie this Saturday against Hessle Rangers to the artificial surface at Longcroft School in Beverley following concerns about their regular home pitch at Hutton Cranswick.

Town manager Rich Jagger told Beverley FM the Cranswick pitch had cut up badly during Saturday’s 5-1 home league win over Crown and coupled with forecasts of bad weather it was decided it was better to take a decision earlier rather than later.

Town are only in the last eight of the competition after East Yorkshire Carnegie, who beat Beverley 2-0 in the last round, were subsequently disqualified by the East Riding FA for fielding an ineligible player.

Hull City have already made it through to the semi-finals of the senior cup; other possible opponents if Town do triumph over Hessle are Bridlington Town, Hedon Rangers, East Riding Rangers and Dunnington.

Jagger says the 5-1 league win over last year’s Humber Premier league champions Crown has filled them with confidence ahead of this Saturday’s tie.
