Aspatria travel to Highfield to lock horns with Cockermouth tomorrow in the Iggesund Cumberland League. Cockermouth have been in a rich vein of form of late and their latest result, a resounding 48 - 14 win against Egremont.
The two teams have already met this season in a pre-season game at Cockermouth in which the home side prevailed 26 - 14. Cockermouth's pack was excellent on the day and really set the platform for the back line of Ryan Scott and Jack Clark (among others) to get on the front foot.
Aspatria come into the game on the back of two gritty wins against Hensingham 2s and Seaton 2s and will be able to take confidence from the fact that the new combinations in the team are starting to gel under new Coach Okesene.
As is normal with this time of year, several players are unavailable due to works and holiday commitments with centre, Kris Beattie still ruled out with an ankle / Achilles injury sustained in the away game to Lowca several weeks ago.
Would supporters please note the earlier kick-off time of 2pm.
The game is at Highfield Sports Ground.
