Match Preview – Wharfedale v Otley

September 18th, 2018 Comments off

The impressive winning start to the season came to an abrupt halt last weekend at the every impressive Hinckley. However many positives could be taken from the game against the Hornets and Wharfedale could be considered very unlucky not to pick up, at the very least, a losing bonus point.

This weekend we see this seasons first instalment of the Battle of the Wharfe Valley when we have our good friends, and close rivals, Otley as visitors to the Avenue.

The men from Cross Green were proactive during the summer months and have made some notable signings. Their current league position of 12th in National 2 North with just 4 points is probably more down to the team gelling together at this early stage and they should start to climb the table soon. Hopefully not too soon from a Wharfedale perspective !!

Previous meetings between the two sides show that the Greens have won 9, lost 8 and drawn 1 of the 18 games. At the Avenue it’s played 9 with 6 wins to Wharfedale, 2 to Otley and a draw. Throw in 2 Pilkington Cup ties and 4 Yorkshire Cup meetings and you could say that both sides are familiar with each other. Having said that Otley did the double over Wharfedale last season so current form must go with the visitors from down the Wharfe.

As ever a big crowd is expected for this local derby, 3 o’clock kick off, so an early arrival at the ground is highly recommended. A great chance to meet up with old comrades and friends, which may be forgotten for the duration of the game, but will be renewed in the bar come the final whistle.

The team selection will follow.
