Woodhouse Grange's Richard Mann in mission to KO old team
LAST summer’s Hunters York & District League premier division champions Woodhouse Grange will be hoping to get off to a flying start at Goole tomorrow.
The opener will be a real test for former Goole player Richard Mann who has signed for Grange and will be hoping to make an impression after claiming 34 wickets for the Westfield outfit last season.
Stamford Bridge should mount a serious challenge. They have strengthened their team with the signing of talented all-rounder Dominic Rhodes who has returned to the Y&DSCL after a season in the Yorkshire League with Hull.
His Humberside team-mate Will Parker has also moved to Low Catton Road.
At Easingwold, Steve Piercy is to try his hand in the Bradford League while Tom Piercy has returned to Huby.
Captain Martin Piercy will be hoping the loss of his two cousins will be offset by the arrival of Josh Greenlay from Malton and Kyle Waite from York.
One-time Yorkshire player Nick Thornicroft is also at Easingwold, returning to the game after a couple of years absence during which he made a fleeting appearance for Sheriff Hutton Bridge.
The Bridge will be missing the services of spinner Elliott Cooper, who claimed 37 victims in his first season in the league but who is unavailable due to work commitments for at least the first half of the season.
His replacement is promising teenage spinner Ben Harrison who has moved from neighbours Sheriff Hutton.
