THREE games in three days.

That’s what lies in wait for Harrogate CC and skipper Ryan Bradshaw this Bank Holiday weekend.

‘Gate are on the road to Doncaster on Saturday, a day before Sunday’s rearranged National Knockout fixture at home to Beverley (1pm start).

Then, on Monday, they make the long trek to Hull, also in the league.

It’s like famine to feast for ‘Gate, who had their first two league fixtures of the season cancelled due to the weather.

However, despite the backlog, Bradshaw isn’t daunted.

“I’d rather be playing three games now than in August,” he said.

“We’re going to enjoy it and we’re all eager to play. We’ve got a full strength team tomorrow and I’m looking forward to seeing the full team together.”

On Monday, Bradshaw is waiting on the availability of Alex Lilley, who could be called into the Yorkshire squad for their forthcoming fixtures.

“We’ll just have to see,” said Bradshaw.

“We knew when he signed he might be away playing for Yorkshire.”
