Scott Taylor says he was very happy with the his side after Beverley ARLC got their preseason underway taking on Myton Warriors in a pre-season friendly.
Beverley put on a good show despite going down 34-18 in a match that was always going to be a big test for Taylor and his players.
Taylor used the match to tweak his side, making changes in the game to as he looked to see how he can get the best out of the side for when the competitive season starts.
Speaking after the game, Taylor said;
“I am very happy for first run out of the season, though I didn’t help things making lots of changes throughout the game.”
“Overall boys did well who played. There are some areas of improvement we need to work on this week before our cup game on Saturday.”
“Errors and discipline cost us in the second half, but if we can put that right, then we can look forward to the season ahead.”
Myton play three leagues above Beverley in the Premier Division but for the first half at least, it would have been difficult to tell them apart.
Another positive note for the club was the number of people who turned out to watch the watch the game.
A good sized crowd, all kept back behind new fencing added to a good afternoon of local sport.
Taylor now just has a matter of days to get his squad ready and focused on their next match, which is the club’s eagerly awaited return to the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.
Beverley will hit the road as they again take on a side how play at a higher standard as they face Shaw Cross Sharks looking to cause what would be a real cup shock.
It is fair to say Beverley will not be going there to roll over. It is a massive day for the club and if any side can cause an upset in the opening round, it has to be Beverley.
