Queensbury playmaker Gregg Marriott is set to make a welcome return for the visit of Eastmoor Dragons in the Pennine League Championship encounter at Hill Top on Saturday.

The long-serving scrum half has been badly missed on the attacking front for a Bury outfit seeking to improve their scoring record.

The recent impressive form of youngster Matt Kieran is also a cause for celebration but their other bright prospect, Kennedy Timewall, is out with an ankle injury.

Wibsey Warriors are back in knockout action once more in a delayed Pennine Presidents Cup first-round tie at Slaithwaite Saracens.

The Warriors have the mind-set to overcome their disappointing Hamuel Reichenbacher Yorkshire Cup semi-final defeat at Thornhill Trojans when they face the Saracens, who are finding life difficult at present in the Championship.

West Bowling travel to arch rivals Keighley without the services of BARLA youth international Ash Hutchinson.

The rangy second-rower has been one of the cornerstones of the Bowling pack since joining from Wyke. Former junior Scott Butler, who has recently returned from Wibsey, is drafted in as his replacement.

The match promises to be a close contest, with both sides running neck and neck in the Premier top flight after gaining promotion last season.

Bank Top Harriers, who are languishing in bottom spot, have a mammoth task on their hands at leaders Sharlston Rovers.

Harriers, however, will not be overawed and have the talent to cause the hosts, who are currently not at their best, some anxiety.

Birkenshaw are handily poised in the Championship Division One promotion race but face a tough challenge from Batley Boys at East Bierley.

Birky’s main strike force of hooker Nathan Kitson and wingman Damian Smith are in great form and are certain to have a big influence.

Wyke who are in danger of relegation from Division One, have BARLA tourist player Simon Owen and club captain Ian Watkinson back in action at home to West Leeds.

The black and whites also introduce new boy Tim Stones and find of the season Jordon Myers against the Leeds visitors, who have won five of their seven outings.

Odsal Sedbergh hope to travel to Selby Warriors, who have been struggling to raise a team, while West Bowling A are in a similar position, cautiously expecting Division Four Thornhill Trojans A to arrive with a full complement at Emsleys Rec.

Wests duo Lee Hutchinson and Brett Greenwood are out injured. Runaway leaders Victoria Rangers are set for another points feast at home to Emley Moor.
