Beavers seek a third straight Roger Brummitt Mixed Hockey Trophy win this weekend.
The city side beat Jurassic Beavers (no relations, but a team made up of golden oldies who used to dominate this competition decades ago) in last year’s final and will be expected to be there or thereabouts again in 2015.
Sixteen teams have entered the two-day event at Bretton Gate.
Four groups of four will contest qualifying group action on Saturday from 10am.
The top two from each group continue in the main event on Sunday with the bottom two entering a plate competition.
Both finals are scheduled for 5.30-6pm on Sunday.
Pool A - Dereham, Odds and Sods, Bourne Deeping, Sons of Pitches.
Pool B - Jurassic Beavers, Almighty Ones, Trent, Melton Mowbray.
Pool C - Beavers, Kev Senior, GPO, Ragamuffins A.
Pool D - Barely Legal, BGZs, Ragamuffins B, Brummitt Knights.
