The will commence their league campaign on Saturday making the short trip to face local rivals East Hull.

Their opponents are making their debut in the competition after resigning from the Winter based . and Pat Howdle believe they have the right ingredients for success this season.

This would mean improving on last years fourth place and exiting out at the semi-final stages of the play-offs. Beverley have performed admirably in their three pre-season friendlies all against NCL opposition and numbers have grown steadily at training with a new face arriving with every passing week.

Meanwhile Beverley will learn their fate after a Yorkshire Mens League management meeting this week. Last Saturdays opponents Heworth called off the 40/20 cup tie on the Thursday evening claiming their pitches were under standing water.

However there was no suggestion by the York club of travelling to Beverley to play the fixture. It was thought Heworth had a long injury list but they do run two open age sides so it would seem inconceivable that they were unable to raise a side.

After the weekends results it would appear that Beverley would have needed to defeat Heworth by at least 44 points to finish fourth and secure a semi-final berth.

The outcome of the YML management decision could either be 1 point to each side, match awarded to 24-0 or the game played on an alternative date. The third scenario is the only way Beverley could now make the semis.

This would almost certainly mean a midweek fixture which would be possible with Heworth having floodlights. Whatever the outcome Beverley will feel shortchanged as the Doncaster Toll Bar game which was awarded as a 24-0 denied them the chance to win by a bigger score.

Saturdays game kicks off at 2.30pm at Rosmead Street.
