While their first team were losing at Barrow Island, Crosfield’s A team were being dispatched by Roose Pioneers, who won 44-14 at Holbeck Park last Saturday, writes Paddy McAteer.

Star man was Polish full back Dai Hernandez, who crossed the visitors’ line four times while other on the score-sheet were Harrison O’Brien (2), Mike Light, Mike Backhouse, Kris Holmes and Saul Dockerty, who also added two goals.

The result moved Pioneers up to fifth in the North West Men’s League Division Three table, keeping their play-off hopes very much alive.

In the Premier Division, Walney Central gained revenge for their defeat at Heysham Atoms back in May when they won the reverse fixture 36- 6 at Central Drive.

Tries for the Cents came from Harry Gee, Stu Tippett, Matty Elliott, Andy Litherland and Brad Nicholls with Dave Nicholson adding six goals.

Ulverston conceded the points when they couldn’t raise enough players for their scheduled trip to Blackbrook A in Division One.

In the National Conference League, it was a bad day at the office for Askam and Millom who both failed to register any points.

Already relegated Askam went down 84-0 at Hull Dockers in what was their final match in Division Two while Millom leaked 54 points without reply in their defeat at Dewsbury Celtic in Division Three.

Pioneers will be looking to build on their good work against Crosfields when they face Leigh East A at home on Saturday.

Ulverston should welcome most of their missing players back for their match against Hindley at Dragley Beck, while Hindpool Tigers are set to play their first game since July 27 when they travel to Bury Broncos.
