All junior fixtures ( except Under 9s) now on this website under " Matches". Season starts end of April but our Under 11 game away at Hessle on April 27 has had to be cancelled because they say they told League that they would not be entering a team this year and Hornsea have cancelled our U13 match on April 30 because their team manager is on holiday and they have no one else to take charge of their team. We hope to re-arrange this fixture later on in the season. Our U15 side are are away across the Avenue at Hull CC on April 28.
