Cup draws

In the first round of the Lancashire Trophy Eccles will face Ruskin Park of St. Helens, who currently play in South Lancs/Cheshire 1 (level 7). The game will be played at Gorton Steet on Saturday 31/08/13. Kick off time TBC but likely to be 15:00.

Eccles have also been chosen as Lancashire’s representative in the National Intermediate Cup, as we were last year, losing out to Bridlington in the 1/4-finals. Hopefully we can go further this year and make it to the final at Twickenham. Fixtures will follow for this once the other CB’s have picked their representatives.

In the North-West Leagues Cup competitions, the Second and Fourth XVs have been rewarded with first round byes. The Third XV will play Orrell 2s on 18/01/14.
