Hindpool Tigers under-14s had the honour of playing in the curtain raiser for the Barrow Raiders game last Sunday when they welcomed Portico Panthers to Craven Park.

Hindpool put in an impressive display against the side from St Helens scoring 11 tries in total as they ran out 62-0 winners.

Jack Osman was the star man after he scored a hat-trick and also managed to convert nine tries on the day, leading to him scoring 30 of his side's points.

The Barrow and District Under-12s League provided some close encounters where Askam just managed to edge Milom with a 20-16 victory and cemented their place at the top of the table.

Elsewhere, Barrow Island were comfortable winners over Hindpool, while Walney picked up a much needed victory over fourth-placed Dalton.

There were only two games in the under-14s league, where Askam played twice within the space of three days to climb the table. They recorded a 46-12 victory over Dalton last Friday before they beat Millom on Sunday with a 62-0 win.

In North West Counties Youth League, there was only one game that went ahead and it was a successful one for Askam under-15s against Latchford Giants after they ran out 56-0 winners against the Warrington opposition. However, there was no game for Roose Pioneers after their game against Ashton Bears Golds was called off and as a result, they were crowned league champions without having to kick a ball.

Fixtures for this weekend sees only one game across the Barrow and District Youth League on Sunday, with Barrow Island under-12s entertaining Walney Central at Rating Lane.

Millom under-16s host Wath Brow Hornets in the West Cumbria Youth League whilst newly-crowned champions Roose Pioneers under-15s and Walney under-16s travel to Haydock Warriors and Hindley, respectively, in the North West Counties.
