Sun set to shine at last on NCL

Spring has arrived – officially and, hopefully, in reality, in terms of weather conditions.

Teams around the Kingstone Press Cider National Conference League will, given the improved weather, all be confident of going ahead with their fixtures on Saturday, after a stop-start opening to the 2018 campaign.

A highlight is the Division One match between York Acorn and Bradford Dudley Hill, which is being televised by FreeSports from shortly after 4.00pm.

Elsewhere, much attention will centre on the top two in the early-season Premier Division table, both of whom are playing in Cumbria.

Egremont Rangers are at home to last season’s Minor Premiers Siddal, and Hunslet Club Parkside, who are also unbeaten, are at Wath Brow Hornets.
