Trafford MV welcome Littleborough to MacPherson Park as the sides meet for the 3rd time this season. With honours shared to date both teams will be looking to overturn the balance.
Neither side has been showing good from with Littleborough losing their last 5 and Trafford MV having only a single point win at bottom played Tyldesley to better it.
MV look to have a stronger team on paper than of late with the return of half back partners Eccles and Crampton to direct the game. A young side MV are giving 1st XV opportunities to a number of players this season which looks good long term but short term absences of Danny Burke, Andrew Moore, Zac Crabb and Gaz Bevan to name a few are impacting the effectiveness of what should be a good Trafford team.
Coach Ricky Philips is looking for a reaction from the team going into Christmas with a big game looming at West Park next weekend.
MV's pack looks to be mobile and must make this pay on what might be a more suited weather day for the visitors, but the weather is there for both teams and has to be mastered. The back line looks dangerous and MV will be looking to get a good scoring ratio. The big, big question is can MV put in a big defensive play?
A good game is on the cards and MV are looking for local support to get behind the team. Kick off is at 2.15pm 0 Bar Open at 1.00pm
The 2nd XV welcome Upper Eden 2nd XV and the 3rd XV are facing Broughton Park 4th XV - All games are at home.
Ladies Day and Christmas Wreath making organised by the wonderful Helen Boyle takes place with around 50 of our lovely ladies enjoying the afternoon while the lads get wet and mucky. I'm sure their better halves will have a warming pint on the bar waiting !!!!!
