The second team entertain old foes Sedgley Park on Friday evening in what will be their penultimate fixture of what has been another impressive campaign. Young’s men who have not lost an away game all season return to Lightfoot Lane knowing that nothing less than a comprehensive victory will do if they’re to retain the championship.
Hoppers pick from a position of real strength as most of the senior squad’s injuries have passed whilst a number of lads are back in Preston for the Easter break. The plethora of backs means that Young could have picked two entire back lines whilst the forwards are boosted by the return of Wayne Steel.
Given that the first team are away this weekend the lads hope that a healthy crowd will be at the Green to cheer them on. Kick off time is scheduled for 7.45 with the lads due to assemble at 6.15. The full squad is as follows:
Reps: Jones, Gale S, Yates
