Pre-season training has gone well despite the difficulty in obtaining warm up fixtures. A Rugby League game v Blackpool Stanley last Wednesday night gave the players a good work out with a 36-12 win despite the luckless Jamie Mayall suffering a broken arm.
We are hoping for a good turnout to watch the game and Kev, our genial host, has a few good deals on offer. Stella 4 at £2.50 a pint and bottles of Estrella at 3 for £7.00 so leave the car at home!
The 2nds and 3rds start their season a week later. The 2’s at our local rivals Thornton Cleveleys and the 3’s at home to Aldwinians.
This season our 1st team have moved into the ADM Lancashire Leagues where we will renew our rivalry with old friends such as Oldham, Aldwinians and Littleborough as well as less regular opponents Liverpool St Helens. Widnes and West Park. It is a 12-team league with the addition of a league cup competition to give us at least 24 first team fixtures.
We are looking forward to a successful season for all our teams.
