PR: Beverley vs Normanton Knights
The Blue and Golds will be looking to get off the mark this Saturday when Normanton Knights are the visitors to the Leisure Centre for a 2.30 pm kick-off. Their opponents from the West Riding town opened up their campaign with a 22-10 victory at home to Wigan St Judes. Gauging opponents post-pandemic can be tricky, but as a club, Normanton were as high as the NCL Premier Division as recent as 2018, so they are clearly aiming to rise again.
Sam French’s first game in charge last weekend, saw a brave effort in the face of adversity by the youngsters, with perhaps inexperience the deciding factor. The squad will be boosted by the return of Alex Calvert and Jake Hart-Fisher from holiday and work commitments. There is a deserved return following a good performance in the ‘A’ team last weekend for Joe Vaudin and a debut is handed to Beau English on the wing. Lewis Miller and Bobby Howdle will miss out through injuries.
Team: F Coggle, J Norman, J Poskitt, B Riby, B English, C Cone, L Poskitt, D Smart, D Precious, E Dickinson, C Hutchinson, S Roe, A Calvert.
Subs: J Vaudin, B Atkin, J Hart-Fisher, A Nutall.
