National Conference League leaders Beverley ARLC will hit the road this weekend as they head North to play Gateshead Storm, a side that is struggling in the NCL.
Beverley who have won all eight of their games and are now odds on favourites to be promoted and win the title as they sit four points clear at the summit.
Bevelrey enjoyed another fine win last time out and with their cloest rovals, Clock Face Miners slipping up for the consecutive week, Beverley have siezed the initiative and tightened their grip on top spot.
This Saturday sees top play second bottom and should be a walkin the park for the Blue and Golds though theior coaching team are taking nothing for granted.
The coaching team of Scott Taylor and Pat Howdle have warned against the players getting ‘carried away’ with their flying start to life in the NCL as there maybe plenty of potential banana skins ahead.
Beverley will leave the selection of their team to until the day of the match as the coaching assess the fitness of some players ahead of what should be a formality and regulation win for the blue & golds.
At least five of the squad have picked up minor knocks of which they will be given the maximum time to pull through as Beverley look to make 9 wins in 9 games.
Phil Horsfield and Duncan O’Connor will be in charge of first team affairs this Saturday. Kick-off is at the earlier time of 12.30PM in order to avoid a clash with the RLF’s Magic Weekend that is being held in Newcastle.
Anyone wishing to attend the game can take advantage of a bus, the club say to help combat traffic and to ensure a timely arrival the bus will eave the Potting Shed at 8AM.
