IT’S going to be Roses combat for Huddersfield’s top bowlers at Newsome WMC tomorrow.
Four Netherton Con men are in Keith Hatzer’s Yorkshire home team against Lancashire in the first Inter-County Championship match of the season.
Steven Haigh, Steven Hirst, Paul Sigsworth and Ashley Daykin are the Netherton Con quartet in the line-up, which is led off by Longwood’s Paul Ingleby at No1.
Among the reserves is, for the first time, David Fox of Kirkheaton, bowling from Spen Victoria. Fox has had to wait a long time for a call-up since winning the Huddersfield Boys Merit successively at Under 13, 14 and 15 level in the 1980s – winning three sets of woods in the process!
The away team, managed by Allan Thompson, are at Garswood & Simms.
Home – Paul Ingleby (Longwood) v Andrew Wightman (King & Queen), Wayne Moseley (Lockwood Con) v Tommy Johnstone (St Oswalds), Steve Haigh (Netherton Con) v Steve Brown (K&Q), Paul Sigsworth (Netherton Con) v Derek Ainsworth (Scarisbrick), Steven Hirst (Netherton Con) v Alan Manual (K&Q), Peter Jagger (Spen Vic) v Larry Wells (K&Q), Scott Fisher (Morton Hs) v Chris Cooke (Alexandra Pk), Graham Higgins (Ossett FH) v David Jarrett (Ince Parish), Steve Pinfield (Lower Hopton) v Duncan Watkins (St Joseph’s), Mick Robinson (Morton Hs) v Ian Brown (Ince Parish), David Fisher (Morton Hs) v Damion Morrison (K&Q), Ashley Daykin (Netherton Con) v John Taylor (K&Q).
