THE Holliday Cup kicks into gear tomorrow with three clashes where lower division Pennine League teams will be looking to upset the odds.
The Division II trio of Emley Moor, Lindley Swifts and Underbank all find themselves on the travels to higher rankings rivals, but will all be fancying causing a cup shock.
Underbank, with just one league win to their name this term, arguably face the toughest task as they travel to Premier Division outfit Slaithwaite Saracens, who themselves will be seeking cup glory at local level having been ruled out of the Yorkshire Cup competition this season.
Emley Moor have started their league campaign strongly with four wins out of five and they will look to test their progress against Championship Division strugglers St Joseph’s.
Joes are yet to win a league game this season and go into the cup clash on the back of a quick exit from the county competition being beaten in round two last weekend at home 28-14 by Ossett Trinity.
Lindley will also be fancying their chances as they go to Newsome Panthers.
The Swifts have won two of three league games and progressed to the third round of the county cup, but the Panthers have started with some tidy form and currently lie fourth in Division I.
