With the National Leagues having a weekend off, attention turns to the Halbro North West Leagues and, in particular, to the Premier League clash between Fylde Hawks v Preston Grasshoppers 2nds at the Woodlands on Saturday (ko 14.15).
Whilst the Hawks have rather struggled this season, there’s no doubt that they will be very anxious to reassert the dominance over their opponents seen in recent seasons. Hoppers 2 are currently in 3rd place in the division, the Hawks in 6th. With free entry, live coverage of England v Australia on screens throughout the Clubhouse and bars and food on offer, the Club hopes for a decent crowd to cheer on the home side.
The Hawks line-up is:
15 George Brookes; 14 Jake Foster, 13 James Bailey, 12 Luke Fowden, 11 Jake Christmann; 10 Danny Carlton, 9 Jon Green; 1 Dan Richardson, 2 Blake Wilkinson, 3 Andy Stevens, 4 Karl Capstick, 5 Matthew Garrod (c), 6 Jamie Brookes, 7 Toby Harrison, 8 Will Hopwood.
16 Josh Oldman (FR), 17 Rob Taylor, 18 Tom Steer. 19 Jack McCutcheon (Reserve)
