Yorkshire Shield (Round One)
Old Rishworthians 29 Pts North Ribblesdale 8 Pts
Both sides fielded several young players in a competitive Yorkshire Shield 1st Round Tie
that saw Rishworthians earn a home tie against Hullensians in the next round.
For Ribb it was the old old story on away trips "didn't get off the bus" (Cars next week to Keighley)
and a lacklustre start saw them 19 points down in the first quarter.
A good effort from the forwards either side of the break saw Ribb get back into the game with a
try from hooker Ian Close and a penalty from David Fox. However Rishworthians sealed their
progress to the next round with a late converted try and a penalty. Disappointing for Ribb but
on the whole a far more encouraging performance.
