They welcome rivals Doncaster Town to Alderson Drive on Saturday.

In comparison Town’s start to the season has been disappointing and their batting frailties were exposed again in a four wicket defeat at home to leaders Cleethorpes. Only Charlie Kaye (56) offered some serious resistance as Town were bowled out for 111 in 30.3 overs.

Cleethorpes got off to a stuttering start and were reduced to 37-4 but Jordan Cook’s 66 not out got them home in good time.
