Cats aim to get the Yarmouth Saturday League cream

Pub on the Shrubs Yarmouth Saturday League

THe Pub on the Shrubs Great Yarmouth & District League returns again tomorrow for a new season.

Reigning champions Catfield will start again as favourites f but will face some stiff competition again.

Tomorrow they kick off their campaign at home to promoted side South Yarmouth, who have had an excellent pre-season and are really up for the challenge of Division One this season after five years in Division Two.

Haven Bridge could well make a strong case for the championship this season after their historic season last year in which they completed the Norfolk Primary Cup, Burgess Cup and Division Two treble.

They start at Albion Tramway who have improved over the summer themselves. Wiltshire Cup winners Caister Roma are also now into Division One and they face a tough trip to MK Shrubs. MK have added some experience to their line-up and will be a tough nut to crack. Bohemians meanwhile though will be looking to improve on last season’s position.

Meanwhile Division Two looks as though it is wide open.
