Moor tussle with Trinity

DEWSBURY Moor play their third Heavy Woollen derby fixture in the last four matches when they meet Ossett Trinity at Church street in Pennine League Division One East tomorrow (2.30pm).

Surprisingly the sides have yet to meet this season, despite being in various national and local cup competitions but they could meet another three or four times before the end of the campaign.

Trinity are second in the table with Moor two points behind in fourth but they have two games in hand so this is an important fixture.

Having survived National Cup ties at Batley Boys and Birstall Victoria in recent weeks, the Moor should be used to the derby atmosphere by now.

Thornhill Trojans at last seem to be getting their league season moving in Division Three. They have moved up to third with games in hand and meet second-placed Dudley Hill A at Overthorpe Park tomorrow.

Yorkshire League fixtures continue to be very much hit and miss and subject to late change. Dewsbury Celtic are scheduled to meet Milford Marlins A in a Gordon Teal White Rose Trophy quarter-finals in Crow Nest Park.

In the same competition, Shaw Cross A have a preliminary tie at home to neighbours White Rose, which promises to be another close contest after the Cross won their league meeting 24-22.

n Shaw Cross Sharks are set to play their first home game of the year in the National Conference as they face Crosfields in Division Two at Leeds Road.

The sides are separated by a point in mid-table and a win would move the Sharks up two places.They gained a 40-28 success at Crosfields back in September.
