Whitby Preview

By Dave Picken - October 31 2018
Whitby Preview It's more than the divebombing seagulls we will have to look out for this week. Ponteland showed us last week that there will be no easy games in this league as teams up their games against us  ...

Whitby will be no different even if they have yet to win a game after being promoted sideways from Yorkshire Two, and will be looking at the arrival of a team used to playing in higher leagues as the chance to kickstart their season.

Last week Ponteland belied their lowly position. We eventually came through that test, and showed we have spirit as well as the will to work hard if things aren’t going as well as we would like.

We have one or two players back in the frame, and quite a few others travelling on the charabanc across the moors to support the team and enjoy a sedate evening with fish and chips on the pier.

Jake Linighan returns in the second row and the back row will feature Isaac Robinson whose ball winning abilities have been of the features of the season so far.

However, experienced hooker Andrew Rollins, back row Alex Barker and centre Gavin Painter are still missing through injury.

On the bench Andy Turner will be providing both backs and forwards cover.

West : Zac Southern, Callum Johnston, Will Hilditch, Peter Youll, Adam Peacock, Stu Waites, Ryan Painter (captain), Adam Coates, Adam Brown, Danny Cookland, Jake Linighan, Joe Rafferty, Chris Atkins, Isaac Robinson, Jay Corbett.

Changes: Jonny Hunter (fr), John Bunter, Andy Turner.
