IT is cup quarter-finals time for Hawcoat Park A as they travel to take on the might of Preston Grasshoppers 4 tomorrow, writes Jason Meadows.

Both teams will be looking to get that coveted semi-finals slot in the Robinsons Brewery Shield, so a tough game can be expected for Park.

With last week’s great home win over Clitheroe 2 in the league behind them, Hawcoat’s Ryan Brown returns to the side and could be joined by one of Mike Gibson, Paul Woodburn and Mark Hall.

There is a decision to be made in the second row as well where Corey Doughty, Jordan Bayliff and Luke Shaw all put their hats into the ring for selection.

The fly-half jersey will surely stay with Joe Dalton after last week’s heroics, with Lewis Sayle, Jake Rigg, Benji Platt, Dave Wynne, Jay Crowe and Keenan Cotton all key players this week in the back line.

The back row will be in the hands of the young guns of Austin Meadows, Peter Matthews and Rory Sayle, with back-up from Peter Jennens helping out.

Scrum-halves Scott Garnett and Adam Williamsom, Jack Lord, Andy Kent and Adam Armstrong are also available making this one an interesting outing for the Maroon & Whites.

Last week’s superb home win against Furness should be just the fillip Millom need as they travel to Cumbria Two table-toppers Silloth.

With the likes of Sy Robertson, Robbie Pattinson and Kieron Coulson leading the way this season the Blues can be optimistic the future for the club is positive.

Back playing in the last few weeks is Dean Doyle who has strengthened the set play and gives the team a lift. Trevor Dixon, Matthew Jordon and John Falconer are in good form too.

Millom can take heart from the fact they are the only team to beat Silloth so far this season, having overcome them in the Cumbria Cup.

Windermere travel to Moresby and are again unchanged, with hooker Dan Harrison having Luke Todd and Jamie Hardman propping him up, and Phil Murphy and John Langford pushing them on.

The dynamic back row are skipper Johnny Benson, Ollie Askew and Adam Hague, with the burgeoning half-back partnership of Liam McKinnon and Bertie Hodgson looking to release the back line.
