Steeton bid to continue climb
Steeton boss Roy Mason is hoping that he can take the club forward this campaign after their best ever season.
The Chevrons finished third in the West Riding County Amateur Premier Division and won the Keighley Cup.
Their first game of the season is on Wednesday, when they entertain Salts after a strong pre-season which has seen them win all four of their matches.
“We really just want to go that step further this year,” said Mason. “Our main targets are to do well in the league, retain the Keighley Cup and perform a lot better in the county cup as well.
“Every game in this league is tough and Salts will certainly be up for this with it being a local derby.
“I think they were a better team than their position suggested last year and they will be a big test for us first up.”
Mason believes that keeping hold of his successful team was the most important thing after just two new signings in Danny McNulty and Martin Bland.
He added: “Danny McNulty is a good young player from Silsden and has really performed well in pre-season, whereas Martin is a well-known character and will give us a wealth of experience.
“But the most important thing for us is that we’ve managed to keep the squad together. There were a lot of teams which play at a higher level who were after some of our players after the season we had.”
