Driffield Town CC were extremely unlucky last night. Two of our footballing sides are back in pre-season action tonight. The Hull derby is to be put back once again.
Driffield Town CC played their third game in as many games last night. It was in the YPLN T20 Blast-Quarter Final against Scarborough. Driff batted first, Sam Drury scored an excellent 69 from 49 balls, Noah Kelly also chipped in with a useful 44 from 40 balls. Town eventually reaching 164/4 from their 20 overs. The game became rain-affected; Scarborough only completed 2 of 20 overs on 19/0. As a result, was needed the game was decided on the toss of a coin. The very unfortunate Driffield lost out.
Beverley Town returns to pre-season action this evening for the first time since winning the Humber Premier League title last season. Mike Thompson’s men travel to Appleby Frodingham, a Scunthorpe based outfit who drew with Hessle Sporting, 4-4, over the weekend.
North Ferriby will hope to continue on from their win on the weekend this evening. The Villagers beat Pickering Town in their preparation for the new season. It is the return of the Billy Bly Trophy tonight against Hull City Academy at the Dransfield Stadium. Read the full preview of the game here.
And finally, the Hull derby has once again had to be postponed. The fixture was supposed to be played on Thursday evening. Hull FC are currently without eleven players and two staff members due to self-isolation. This is on top of an already extensive list of first-team injuries for Brett Hodgson’s men. Hull Kingston Rovers may look to find a new opponent to replace this game. Tony Smith’s men have not had a fixture since 18th June when they beat Wigan away 18-8.
