The second team have now got a bye into the second round of the Cumbria 2 Cup. Not the way we wanted to earn it as we had a good team wanting to travel to Greengarth to compete, but it looks like Greengarth could be in trouble as they once again said they couldn’t raise a team. Gaz asks all Second team players to head for the club at about 2:00 where they can have a few drinks together and support the first team.

A message from Barney Clegg of Aspatria
"The very nearly famous Aspatria Prediction League will be re-
The league is contained within a weekly forum article throughout the season and concentrates on all the fixtures, outcomes and news from the North Lancs and Cumbria League
All are welcome to add comments on the state of rugby at your own club, within the league or indeed as wide as you want to make it. However, I am told any further articles on the canals of Manchester will be subject to editing.
Entry to the actual prediction league itself will only remain open for a limited period. So get cracking if you want to enter. In past years there has been a wide spread of opinion from the four corners of the NL&C plus some excellent guest contributors from further afield. Representatives from club’s new to the league are particularly welcome".

Tuesday 22nd July
For those who have been up to the club in the past few day, would have noticed that there is now a new drainage trench that runs from the Dugout on the centre line down to clubhouse corner, then across the pitch behind the dead ball line. Hopefully this will prevent the build up of water that we had in the clubhouse corner last season. Further work is to be done on the clubhouse guttering and drainage to further assist the work. Big thanks to Corne, Gaz, Mike Lamb and any other helpers for all of the effort. Plus Simon Luscombe for the equipment and pipes, then there’s Stainton Quarry for the gravel at that very special price.
** Increase in Annual Subscriptions **
At the AGM held in the Clubhouse on the 4th July it was unanimously agreed by the member present that the Annual Subscriptions would be increased. (They had been at their present levels for 10+ years). The new rates are as follows:-
Full Member -

Just back from the Cumbria awards and we were totally surprised when we were called up to receive the Cumbria RFU team of the year award for the squad, a brilliant honour for everyone involved and a fitting end to what has been a great season..
Friday 6th June
The North Lancs/Cumbria fixture list has been released today and can be viewed here. It throws up a few interesting games and may have caused problems with the Hawcoat Park New years Day fixture. Heard that they may be a few changes because of referee availability so don’t take them all as gospel yet.
