Haven favourite Scott McAvoy has been named on the bench for today's 1895 Cup clash at Oldham.

McAvoy has once again come out of retirement to help out his side as he moves out of his coaching role and back into the thick of the action.

Dion Aiye and Jake Carter provide the half-back pairing this afternoon for Gary Charlton's side in the first round game.

Chris Taylor takes his place at full-back with Sam Dowsett starting at hooker, after signing an extension to his deal at the Recreation Ground.

Also on the bench with McAvoy are youngster Jake Bradley, Kris Coward and James Newton.

Haven: Taylor, Burns, Mossop, Parker, Thompson, Carter, Aiye, McGoff, Dowsett, Maudling, B Phillips, Holliday, Moore. Subs: Bradley, Coward, McAvoy, Newton.
