Work on replacing the Clubs Hot Water / Central Heating commenced today. The job should take about 2 weeks to complete, mainly because we have encountered major problems with the system, as it has been added to over the last 30 years or so, and nothing removed. There must be a 100 metres or so of unused copper pipe below the floors and buried in the walls. There will be a few holes appearing until we get things sorted. Please continue to use and enjoy the clubhouse as normal, we will get there in the end. Please accept the committees apologies for any inconvenience during the installation. The cost of repair and replacement is been partially funded by the club, RFU and we have had a donation from the Armstrong foundation. Any other donations would be gladly accepted, this would help offset the cost against the club.

Not sure what’s happening in the Cumbria 2 league, as I thought Millom 2 had been given a reprieve, but the league table now shows them out and the league points adjusted to show the expulsion. (Another team who do not deserve that sort of fate)

Thursday 1st January
Another year passes by and the annual “Friendly” took place. As predicted it was rather wet underfoot and getting a purchase anywhere on the field was virtually impossible. Not helped by Hawcoat’s inclusion of some rather large forwards. Hawcoat took the honours and everyone was glad of the Hot Shower followed by Deli.sh’s pulled pork sandwich’s. They must have been good given the number of people that came back for seconds. Thanks go to Chris Reid for refereeing the game and everyone that turned up to support, play or just prop the bar up, not forgetting the bar staff who kept everyone's glasses filled.

You can find a brief match report from John Mallinson here. The North Lancs / Cumbria Results and league tables are here. The Cumbria 2 results and league tables are here. There are a few of Col Brannons photos here. Millom cried off for the fourth time, are they about to be excluded from the league? Looks like a dose of West Cumbrian Flu didn’t help our first team at all when late cry offs meant digging deep into our reserves to find people willing to travel and play. The loss of players didn’t seem to effect the seconds who appeared to have cruised to an easy win.
