On Friday, May 20 the third West Cumbrian Derby took place as Egremont Rangers hosted Kells.

The highly entertaining match was dampened by the rain that started just before kick off; this didn’t put off the spectators who came out in force.

Sadly for the home supporters, it was Kells who went away with the bragging rights with a 14 – 26 win.

Wath Brow Hornets travelled to top of the table Siddal on Saturday, May 21 and left empty handed as the hosts ran out 30 – 4 winners.
