Haverhill hoping to end the year well
Haverhill will be going all out to end 2014 on a winning note when they travel to Cottenham on Saturday (2pm) to play Renegades.
After enduring a frustrating November, during which they failed to win a match, Haverhill want to experience the euphoria of winning again, something they’ve not done since a 64-14 triumph over March Bears on October 25.
Saturday’s opponents Renegades currently prop up the Greene King IPA Eastern Counties Division Two West table with minus-one point.
They have one league victory to their name, but are in deficit having had points deducted for conceding a match.
Haverhill defeated them at home earlier this season 43-24 and head coach Martin Hughes feels they are more than capable of completing the league double.
Hughes will have the services on Saturday of key players Adam Hunt and Chris Flannery, who missed Saturday’s Suffolk Plate final defeat to Harwich and Dovercourt, although number eight Kieron McDonough is out for the season having broken his collarbone in that match.
Hughes said: “It’s never an easy place to go, across to Cottenham, but we’ve got some good strong forwards out there and there’s enough experience coming back.
“We will play what’s in front of us and play the best team that’s available to us and fingers crossed we will end our year with a win.
“I’m just looking to get the winning mentality back. We just need to get back on track.”
