Tickets are on sale, priced £13 adults and £8 concessions, with Under-16s admitted free of charge, by visiting or via the Bulldogs office.

There will be an increase for tickets bought on the day and Batley are anticipating a decent crowd, including a large travelling support from Bradford.

Bulldogs coach Matt Diskin believes the performances from a number of fringe players during the two Yorkshire Cup games, is giving him plenty to think about as the new Championship season draws near.

Although Batley only have a squad of about 24 players, Diskin believes the quality within his ranks will stand them in good stead.

Speaking after last Sunday’s Yorkshire Cup semi-final win over York, Diskin said: “Every single player is in my thoughts (for the first game). I kind of know where I am already regarding my 17 but those who would say are fringe or supporting players have some real quality.

“We have 23 or 24 players which isn’t a big squad and something I am not comfortable with for the whole year numbers wise but when you look at the quality of that 23, 24 I am more than happy and there are some real quality individuals there.”

Batley begin their Championship campaign at home to Barrow on Sunday February 3.
