Liversedge get an early test of their Central Yorkshire League promotion credentials tomorrow when they travel to fellow form team Hopton Mills.

Liversedge have taken winning draws from their opening two league games, their latest an impressive 39-run success over Buttershaw St Pauls.

Having a couple of the old guard returning has helped Sedge as Mark Hydes is captaining the Roberttown Lane men this time, while Paul Marlow has returned after several seasons at Birstall and he struck 82 not out in last week’s win.

Hopton have two outright wins, so victory for Liversedge at the picturesque Woodbottom would set down a marker.

Scholes, with a win and a defeat, travel to Oulton.
