Weekend Preview – 12th November 2021
Five fixtures to focus on this weekend, two of which are cup fixtures. There has also been some exciting news for Hull KR fans ahead of the new season.
Hull Kingston Rovers have confirmed the capture of exciting, young half-back Mikey Lewis on a new improved contract. It has been a break-out season for the 20-year-old, with numerous impressive performances and even has the potential for Try of the Season with a brilliant solo effort in the play-offs against Warrington. Recently called up to the England Knights, Lewis will be staying at Craven Park until 2025. Read more on Hull KR’s website.
Beverley Town are in cup action this week when they take on East Riding Rangers in the East Riding Senior Cup. Manager Mike Thompson has targeted this competition as one he would like to progress further in, especially with higher ranking teams such as North Ferriby and Bridlington Town competing. East Riding Rangers have already suffered defeat at the hands of Town once this season and are still struggling for good results.
Hall Road Rangers’ll be looking to make it four league games unbeaten when they travel to Swallownest FC on Saturday. Swallownest sit in 18th place in the NCEL Division One table and have a total of ten points from their first 17 league games. They’ve lost their last three games in all competitions including defeats in the league against Rossington Main and Brigg Town. Oliver Harsley has written a preview of Saturday’s fixture.
North Ferriby FC return to league action this weekend to face Clipstone after their NCEL league cup game against Maltby Main during the week. It was to be the end of the road for Chris Bolder’s men in the cup as they were defeated 4-2 on penalties by their NCEL Premier Division host. It is the NCEL Premier Division that the Villagers want to reach and find themselves top of the NCEL Division one table. They reached the summit after a 3-0 victory at Armthorpe at the weekend. North Ferriby have provided a pre-match report for this weekend’s game.
Beverley RUFC only managed their third victory of the season last time out. A convincing victory over Dinnington may spark a turn in form for the Beavers. A trip away to Leodensian awaits, the hosts were thumped 72-0 last time out.
Hull City Ladies take part in the FA Cup this weekend. A welcome break from the league and a good opportunity to gain their first victory of the season. The Tigresses travel to Blackburn Community Sporting Club three divisions below, but by no means will this be an easy fixture.
