Dinnington Preview

By Dave Picken - April 15 2016
Dinnington Preview It's fourth versus fifth for the penultimate game of the season at Brinkburn. With respect to bottom club Beverley, who visit next week, Dinnington will provide our last tough big challenge of the season.

The Yorkshire side are six points behind but have played one game less, and victory this week would put them in the driving seat - specially as their game in hand is against a Morley side who will have more than one eye on the play-off game.

Fortunately, we have got our season back on track after three defeats in a row. We've beaten Pocklington and Percy Park in the last two games - although a failure to earn try bonus points has dented our ambitions of pipping Alnwick to third place.

We've got our usual batch of changes with young Liam Checksfield unable to keep his try scoring record going as he's away at a Scottish  Exiles Under 18's training session.

Scott Butcher and Owen Bennett are also unavailble. However, Sam Miller and Connor  Fewster are back after helping Durham Under 20's to reach a final against Hampshire on May 8th at Moseley,  and there's good news in the Stags selection with Stu Waites making a comeback after his shoulder injury.

Jay Corbett keeps  his place in the back row, after a man of the match performance at Preston Avenue last week, with John Bunter similarly retaining his place in the second row alongside Chris Atkins in a West side which won't have a single player over 30.

Dinnington are a well drilled outfit with a strong pack, but will be without playmaker and kicker Jonny West at fly half.

West: Connor Fewster, Joe Willis, Greg Edwards, Peter Youll, Luke Mallinson, Gavin Painter, Ryan Painter, Michael Hogan, Andrew Rollins, Adam Coates, Owen Chris Atkins, John Bunter, Jay Corbett, Dan Boatman (captain), Sam Miller. Reps: Jack Angus, Zac Southern, Connor McLurg.

Dinnington: Robert Leivars, Joel Humphries, Connor Brown, Oli Rodgers, Awly Trueman, Chris Williams, Corry Differ, James Ufton, Jay Differ, Aaron Wood, Mike Leitch, Jamie Shaw, Josh Kohika-Skipper, Ryan Donnelly (captain). Reps: Wes Meese, James Marsden, Jayden Kohika.

Can anyone explain young Mr Checksfield's Scottish connection?
He doesn't sound Scottish.
But then neither does that cockney singer Rod Stewart.
