AvB's view on the Craven Cup

2 years ago, By Peter Naylor

A candid view of Saturday's Craven Cup match against Rolls-Royce

It's Craven cup fever all around Barnoldswick this Saturday, with AvB takin his team round the corner to their local rivals Rolls-Royce. AvB's men are in good form in league,currently sitting third in the table with two games in hand on the top spot!
"For us this is just another game,each team we play are given the maximum respect no matter what league or position there! The application will be the same and we will be working hard on Rolls weakness. I got asked by one our supporters if this was our biggest game this season? For Rolls it's their biggest in their history, but for us it's just another derby.
We have been playing well recently and Craig and Myself will be ensuring this goes into Saturdays game! Rolls are a different team to what we are used to regarding passing the ball,they are just a long ball team so we will have to adapt, but I'm comfortable we will be able to deal with the way they play! It will be a thrilling encounter Saturday one that I'm personally looking forward to. We will be at full strength plus with a few players from the first team who can't play for them but can for us! After Saturday's game I just hope Lynn and Ian have the contract extension ready"
Cheers AvB
