RUGBY league starlets helped raise more than £1,300 for their club.
As part of Millom RLFC’s Magic Saturday fun day, youngsters from the club’s junior sections took part in a mini gala, ahead of the showpiece first team derby match up with Egremont.
Teams from across the club’s younger age sections took on their Egremont counterparts in several showcase games on Saturday morning.
Susan Lloyd, junior committee member at Millom RLFC, said: “There was quite a good crowd up the club because it was a nice day.
“Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.”
As well as the rugby matches, there was a host of activities for everyone to enjoy.
Mrs Lloyd said the junior section raised more than £1,300, which will go towards junior section presentation nights and coaching courses.
She added: “We would like to thank everyone for coming along and supporting us, especially those who travelled from Egremont.
“There was a massive crowd for the first team, which was helped by the morning’s activities.
“It was nice for the older ones to be able to see the youngsters in action, and for the minis to watch the ‘A’ team and first team, because that’s the level they’ll be aiming to reach.”
In the senior game Millom ended up on the wrong end of a 56-6 scoreline against Egremont.
