Heath back in league action

Heath travel to Dinnington tomorrow in Yorkshire One on the back of last weekend’s Yorkshire Shield win at Old Roundhegians.

Kevin Plant’s side will now juggle their league commitments with a quarter final tie at Knottingley next month.

“We made hard work of it last weekend, although the pitch conditions didn’t help us, but we were always the better team,” said Plant.

“We’ve not got a great record at Knottingley, but it’s a game we can win and if we get through that we’ll be at home to York in the last four.

“For the moment though, we will concentrate on finishing the league well.

“Dinnington will be difficult; we’ve had some wins there and we’ve lost there.

“It’s a sloping, exposed pitch and you’re always battling the elements at some stage.”

Heath will be without several senior players through injury, with Ian Downsborough, James Watson, Jamie Richardson and Giles Hetherington all unlikely to feature.

Elsewhere in Yorkshire One, Old Brodleians travel to York looking to secure points to guarantee survival.

The Woodhead club have endured a tricky last month, but appear to have turned the corner and are now aiming to building a base for challenging in the top half of the table next season
