SLAITHWAITE Saracens will hope to go one better than Huddersfield amateur RL rivals St Joseph’s when they entertain Hunslet Old Boys in the third round of the Yorkshire Cup tomorrow.

St Joseph’s bid for county cup glory was halted six days ago at last year’s finalists Sharlston Rovers.

And if in-form Pennine League Second Division side Slaithwaite can claim the scalp of top Yorkshire League side Hunslet this weekend, they can look forward to a quarter-final clash – at Sharlston.

That last-eight clash would take place next Saturday (October 18) and mean the Saracens would once again miss out on competing in the Pennine League, which is occupying the minds of Huddersfield’s other clubs this weekend.

Beaten Yorkshire Cup side St Joseph’s are obviously included in that group and they return to Premier Division action with a home clash against Queensbury, with current form suggesting the Fartown-based side should make an instant return to winning ways.

Unbeaten Division I leaders Emley Moor hope to make it four out of four tomorrow when they host Elland, while Moldgreen bid for a first win of the season at home to West Bowling.

Newsome Panthers should pick up a second Division II victory of the season when they entertain struggling Thornhill Trojans, and Lindley Swifts will travel to Brighouse confident they can secure a second success in Division III.

Meltham All Blacks are in positive mood after winning their first game of the season in Division V in their last League outing and there’s no reason why they can’t make it two on the trot with a win at Elland A.

Both of Huddersfield’s clubs in Division VI are on their travels, with Newsome Panthers A at Westgate Wolves A and St Joseph’s A visiting Kippax Welfare A.

Underbank Rangers A are at home to South Bradford in Division VII, while Emley Moor A are at Illingworth A.
