Scarborough travel to Bradford this afternoon for the first game of what is sure to be a tough season in NORTH ONE EAST(N1E).

The Seasiders’ lineup sees Tom Harrison play fullback, Tom Ratcliffe at flyhalf and James Perrett at outside centre. Still available Matty Jones also plays. New signing Tom Hicks partners Aaron Wilson in the second row whilst Govier brothers Drew and Euan join Ben Martin in the back row.

Bradford & Bingley finished last season in the bottom half of N1E but have recruited in the close season under their new coach Kiwi Anthony Posa who has joined the club from Doncaster. Posa has coached in Yorkshire for many years having great success with Beverley climbing through the leagues and Doncaster Phoenix. He is also coach of the Yorkshire under-20 squad.

A challenging month ahead sees the Seasiders on the road again at Bridlington next week and that game is followed on the 15th with the first home game of the season against west Yorkshire outfit Cleckheaton which is is also part of the club’s charity Ladies Day. A week on and its Huddersfield YMCA on the road on the 22nd followed by the first game against north-eastern opposition when Northumbrian club Morpeth play their first ever game at Silver Royd on the 29th.
