Beverley Town boss Rich Jagger says his side need to hit the ground running as they return to Humber Premier League action following the long layoff.
Town have not kicked a ball for over a month, and the extended break could not have come at a worse time with Jagger’s side enjoy a good run of form.
Last time Town took the field they beat local rivals AFC Walkington 2-0 in the derby to move above them in the Humber Premier League.
This Saturday Jagger and his side face a much stiffer test as they take on one of the bigger clubs in the league with a trip to Hull & East Riding Sports Club t take on fourth placed Sculcoates Amateurs.
Speaking to HU17.net ahead of the game Jagger said;
“It’s a vital game for us. We’ve had a long break since and we must be ready to hit the ground running on Saturday otherwise we will get turned over.”
“We’ve trained hard, had a couple of good friendlies, and trained twice this week. We are missing Alex Stark, Nathan White, Tom Davies, and Jake Cattermole for Saturday’s game.”
“ Kurtis Bedford picked up a knock in training last Saturday and will face a late fitness test to see if he can play any part in the game.”
“Nevertheless we are confident that if we continue to perform like we have done over the last 2 months we will get a result.”
Town are currently in sixth place in the league but a win on Saturday would see them move above Sculcoates and potentially end the day as high as fourth.
Sculcoates come into the game unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions. Historically games between to the two clubs have been tight affairs with Scullies edging in more recent years.
It is almost a year since the sides last played one another and it was Scullies who came out on top as they won 2-0 at the Norwood Recreation Ground with goals from Eleazer Ezekiel and Steve Gardner.
