Kingston Cobras open our 2016 Summer Cup campaign against reigning league and playoff champions Whitley Bay Islanders.
Whitley had a dominant season in 2015, as well as their Summer Cup success they also won RecFest and the Whitley Winter Cup, giving them a four trophy haul.
In 2015 Whitley fell one game short of a perfect season in the Summer Cup (13-1-0) with Cobras registering their only defeat.
Games between these two sides were split last season, with the home side taking the honours on both occasions. Kingston winning 9-2 and Whitley winning 6-3.
Whitley come into the game on the back of a 3-2 away win vs Durham.
Cobras come into the game on the back of a 4-2 home loss vs Don Valley (friendly). This game will be Cobras first game of 2016 Summer Cup.
The all time record between the two sides stands at 9-5-0 in Cobras’s favour
