HEMSWORTH face a tough task of retaining the South Yorkshire Trophy when they visit higher-division opponents Wath tonight.
The Moxon Fields side beat Wath in the final of last year’s competition but Carl Wroe’s men will face a difficult challenge to retain the trophy this season.
Wath top Yorkshire Division 3 having won 21 of their 22 games so far this season and will be favourites going into tonight’s match.
They’ll be keen for revenge following last season’s final defeat against Hemsworth and go into the clash following a 67-5 victory over Doncaster Phoenix 2nds in the last round.
Hemsworth received a bye in the last round and will be looking to retain the trophy after missing out on promotion from Yorkshire Division 4 this term.
