Silverbacks away to Millom

The Silverbacks will play Millom RLFC away on 27th January in the 1st Round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

Millom RLFC are the oldest amateur rugby league side in the world having been founded in 1873.

In 2017 they competed in National Conference Division 2 but were relegated to Division 3 for 2018. National Conference Division 3 equates to the level above the Scottish Conference in the British rugby league system. Millom's second team play in the Barrow & District League and the club have junior rugby league teams up to Under 16s. Over recent years the club has improved it's changing facilities and resurfaced it's car park.

Millom have produced two England rugby union internationals with Edward Knowles playing against Scotland in 1896 and 1897 (winning one and losing one) and Samuel Northmore playing against Ireland in 1897.
