Beverley ARLC return to action this weekend for the first time since they contested the Yorkshire Men’s League Grand Final way back in September of last year.
Their game on Saturday will be the first of three pre-season friendlies against NCL opposition and the toughest, being against Premier Division outfit Myton Warriors.
It will be the third year in succession that Beverley have faced the Hull side a in pre-season hit out. The two previous occasions have seen the Myton outfit post very comfortable wins but Scott Taylor is expecting to be much more competitive this time around.
Taylor has named a 22 man squad of which he expects to give game time to all. The vast majority of that squad contain the names of players that have served him well over the past couple of seasons.
Just four additions will be paraded on Saturday. These will include the returning Alex and Peter Starling after spells at York City Knights, 17 year old Bradley Kirkby who makes his return from Hull Wyke juniors and Charlie D’Arcy- a close season acquisition after spells at Cottingham Tigers and West Hull.
Taylor looks set to continue to resist the temptation to make wholesale signings during the close seasons.
Commenting aheadof the match Taylor said;
“We still have a relatively young squad and we are confident we can develop them further and just make the occasional signing along the way.”
“But the signings have to be right for the club and they must buy into what we are trying to achieve at Beverley.”
Saturday’s game kicks off at 2PM at the Beverley Leisure Centre and will be dedicated to a charity for Brain injuries.
Both sides will contest the game for the Paul for Brain Recovery Trophy. A bucket collection will take place during the game and the charity’s founder Paul Spence will be present at the game.
