CHARLIE Maunder is under no illusions about Otley's first National League Two North clash of the season at Fylde on Saturday.

The Cross Greeners' head coach said: "Fylde had a good run-out last Saturday against Ampthill and we are underdogs, but we will go there and do our best.

"Fylde, who were relegated last season from National League One, will be looking to bounce back at the first attempt."

Otley warmed up with a 29-0 home victory over neighbours Ilkley, who play a division below the hosts, and ironically it was former Ilkley players who scored all of the points, with tries coming from Stephen Nolson (2), Paul Petchey, Ben Magee and Joe Rowntree, who added two conversions.

Maunder said: "We were outstanding in the first-half and gave all of the players who needed a run some game-time.

"We did all right but unfortunately we lost Naz Karim in the first 60 seconds with a hamstring injury.

"We will have to give a couple of players fitness before Saturday, including Declan Dunn, who came off after 20 minutes with a cut eye from a punch."

Otley's new first-team kit (replica shirts cost £45 for adults and £30 for children) will be worn for the first time in the home derby against Huddersfield a week on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Cross Greeners are hoping to run coaches for the away matches at Sedgley Park on September 15 and Wharfedale on September 22.

Details on costs and departure times will be revealed nearer the dates.
