Hawcoat Park aim for perfection at Penrith

A TRIP to Penrith is all that stands between Hawcoat Park and a 100 per cent record in the Cumbria League.

MR PERFECT Andrew Graham takes the ball forward for Hawcoat on their way to victory over Silloth last week – their 15th from 15 Cumbria League games this season HARRY ATKINSON REF: 50044339B007

The runaway champions head to Winters Park with 15 wins from 15 games under their belts and the title already safely tucked away (2.15pm kick-off).

Between them and the perfect campaign are a Penrith A side with nothing to play for but pride, but with an enviable record on their home patch.

Both second-placed Windermere and fourth-placed Millom have come unstuck in the east of the county, while Hawcoat Park and runners-up chasing Silloth have still to visit.

In fact, only Furness have managed to topple the home side on their visit, with Hawcoat well aware they cannot afford any slip-ups if they are to maintain their winning run and challenge the club record of 21, from the 1987 season.

The run currently stands at 16 – including the New Year’s Day win over Furness – with a convincing 35-8 victory over Silloth last weekend their latest conquest.

Liam Ducie starts at prop tomorrow, with Mark O’Halloran coming into second row and Callum Ramsey taking his place to form a strong back row trio.

With the unavailability of Andy Graham, regular full-back Jon Moses was an easy choice after missing last week’s home game and he slots straight back into the side.

The team, as ever, will be led by the powerful Jason Priss, who will push them to their limits in pursuit of perfection.

The Hawcoat Park second team are also on the road tomorrow as they travel up the Cumbrian coast to Greengarth.

They make the trip with a strong squad led by veteran Martin Kennedy and a team which contains the likes of Adam Williamson at scrum half and Pat Samiento at prop, backed up by Steve Slater and Jason Trundle.

The Maroon and Whites should do well, even though they have not played for two weeks.
