Halifax, Huddersfield will be up against it at Bedale in terms of handicaps, though they don’t come into the equation.
Leeds, who have won the strokeplay title five times in recent years despite poor league performances, have four plus handicappers in their six, while Sheffield and Bradford sport three.
East Riding and Sheffield have the low men in the strokeplay event.
England international Steve Uzzell, making his last appearance for East Riding as he plans to turn professional, and Sheffield’s Ryan Brown are both off plus three.
Bedale line-up: Halifax, Huddersfield: F Greaves (West End, 1), S Bridges (West End, scr), I Powell (Hebden Bridge, +1), A Shaw (Huddersfield, +1), J Bower (Meltham, 1), B Tupman (Huddersfield, scr).
