GOOD LUCK and best wishes to Eccles Ladies who take on Henley Hawks in the National Intermediate Cup Final tomorrow. Kick-off 11.45am at Lichfield.
The journey to the final began in November last year when the Ladies overcame local rivals Altrincham-Kersal in Round 1 with 41-5 win at Gorton Street. Eccles Ladies were rewarded with another home tie and subsequently overcame Preston Grasshoppers 36-0 in Round 2 before defeating Darlington, 36-5 in the quarter-final.
A couple of weeks ago the Ladies headed south to Beckenham and claimed a 17-10 semi-final victory after a tough match. Tomorrow in Lichfield, Eccles Ladies will play Henley Hawks and they will be hoping to add a National Intermediate Cup win to their list honours.
It is sure to be another tough and competitive game, there is no doubt that the players who pull on the ‘navy and white’ of Eccles tomorrow will do themselves and our club very proud.
Good luck ladies!
