Rugby League: Mayfield preview

Date published: 03 May 2019

Mayfield are back in Kingstone Press NCL premier division action on Saturday with a trip to Castleford Lock Lane.

Mayfield had no game last week after the Thornhill postponement while Lock Lane went down heavily at home to West Hull.

Coaches Butterworth and Wood said: “They were bitterly disappointed with that result and are looking at the game as their chance to get back to winning ways.

“Mayfield have put in extra training sessions to make up for not playing last week and as usual travel to Castleford brimming with confidence.

“It has been a real stop start season so far for Mayfield with no real chance to build up a momentum hopefully Saturday will see the start of that.” 

Lock Lane are a good side with a big set of forwards and a good half back pairing, they have a strong squad with a good team spirit. A lot of the squad have come through from the same youth team, coached by Dean Hartley and Marvin Connolly and have played together for years, this gives a side a certain edge and the rest of the players have bought into this.

Coaches Butterworth and Wood said: “Although they have only one win to their credit so far this season Mayfield have put in some creditable performances and have been unlucky on more than one occasion not to come away with the points. they look at putting that right in Castleford and begin the climb up the league to a position they deserve.”
