PREVIEWS: Busy weekend of regional racing ahead
After the melee of Elite League and BYJL action last weekend, the sport settles back down to the nitty gritty of regional racing.
The Midland League has two fixtures; Birmingham take on Coventry at Perry Barr and East Park welcome Leicester to Wolverhampton.
Featuring in the Northern League will be Bury against a strong Stockport team, while Heckmondwike meet Northumbria. It’s Hull’s turn to make the long trip up to Edinburgh, where the Scots host the Humberside team and the final match up in the region sees Astley and Tyldesly travel across to Sheffield.
Like the Northern League, it’s a busy day of fixtures in the South East divisions, as Ipswich Eagles travel to the capital to take on East London, Ipswich Whirlwinds are up against Hethersett and Kesgrave take on Norwich in the final fixture of the South East region.
The South and South Wales league sees Horspath take on fellow Elite League side Poole in Oxfordshire and Swindon host welsh side Newport. Finally Southampton and Hellingly do battle on the south coast.
