Match Reports


The Magnificent Seven…

This was a great day for Manchester, finishing a long and successful season on a high, despite the pressure of knowing that they just had to deliver (again!) or be pipped at the post.

And Then There Were Two…

Manchester’s win means that only Douglas can catch them now, but the title remains in Manchester’s hands with two more performances like this needed.

Widnes RUFC

The Doctors will see you now!

Widnes managed to get their final South Lancs Cheshire 1 fixture out of the way at the third time of asking with a comfortable victory against the Medics.

Wigan Pier Over the Edge

Widnes survived a second half onslaught before going on to complete the double over Wigan , who may be down, but not quite yet out, on what would normally have been the final round of fixtures in South Lancs Cheshire 1.

Glossop beat Widnes

Glossop beat Widnes 70pts - 13 tonight in a re-arranged league fixture.

Southport Rugby Football Club


Firsts put on a try-fest to wrap up a successful season in South Cheshire & Lancs 1 on a high. Mike Smith reports.


The prawn sandwiches off the pitch quckly turned to kippers on it as the First's were stitched up by a powerful Douglas outfit. Mike Smith reports.


On another day the score might have been a lot closer but Port pay price for misfortune of their own making and poor officiating. Mike Smith reports.
