Cup holders Ulverston face Pioneers test

CHAMPIONS Ulverston face a tough trip to Roose Pioneers as they start their defence of the Barton Townley Cup next season.

IN WITH A SHOUT: Ulverston, who picked up plenty of silverware last season, have already won this year’s Frank Reid Cup and are in contention to retain their league title


The holders were drawn away at Redwaters in the first round at the Barrow and District Rugby League AGM.

Beaten finalists Dalton are also on the road, as they travel to Millom, while Barrow Island host Walney Central and Askam welcome Hindpool to Fallowfield Park.

These games will be played on or before August 30, with clubs having to agree the dates between them and inform secretary Terry Barker by August 15. The A-teams also know who they will face in the first round of the Frank Reid Cup.

Reigning champions Walney are away at Millom, while last season’s powerhouse Ulverston – who amassed a memorable haul of four trophies – host Roose Pioneers.

The remaining two games see Dalton take on Hindpool and Barrow Island at home to Askam. The fixtures will be played on or before September 3, with clubs having to agree the dates between them and tell secretary Terry Barker by August 22.

Also at the AGM, the election of league officers took place. Peter Hornby was elected chairman, with Jos Kenley vice-chairman, Terry Barker secretary and fixtures secretary, and Jeff Coward press officer.

l A summer junior RL camp, run by GB legend Paul Sculthorpe, will take place at Barrow Island’s Rating Lane on Tuesday, August 23 and Wednesday, August 24, from 10am until 3pm on both days. It is for boys and girls, aged seven to 16. The cost is £30 per child for the two-day course
