BARROW Island and Millom go head-to-head at Craven Park tonight (7pm) as they look to book a place in the Barton Townley final.

Both teams make changes from their last outings two weeks ago with Max Moore, Alister McEwan and Matt Parkinson missing for the Island. Into contention come Ryan Clegg, Joe Mallinson, along with Scott and Will Hadwin.

Coach Shaun Corrie will be eager to reach his first final.

The former Walney and Askam player said ahead of the game: “It is a game I am looking forward to.

"It will be tough, as it always is when you play Millom. They are a well-drilled side and you have to keep your mistakes to a minimum.

“They have lost a few players to the professional game lately, while we have lost Adam Jackson who’s gone to Workington. We will miss Adam – his kicking game is perfect and he leads the back line. We wish him well in his move up the coast.”

Millom’s coach Tom Sibley was to finalise his 17 after training last night (Thursday) but ruled out are Kier McPherson (elbow), Jonathan Hodgson (shoulder), Ross Brooks (ribs) and Adam Kelly (work). Lost to the Pro game recently are Charlie Emslie (Barrow), with Hanley Dawson and Lee Postlethwaite going to Workington.

Sibley said: “I am all for players joining the professional game so you have to get on with it, but we always have a good production line.

"Young lads coming through are Rio McQuiston, Jack Newbiggin, Kyle Evans, Jake Proctor and Jude Lupton. These are our future and are eager to play at a senior level."

In the North West Men’s League’s first division Ulverston look to put to bed last week’s Barton Townley defeat at the hands of Dalton when they meet Haydock at Dragley Beck. Marc Storey is ruled out after breaking his wrist in the Dalton game, otherwise it will be a similar side to last week.

Coach Dave Clarke said: “We gave them too much of a start scoring 34 points in the first half. But we restricted them to just one point in the second period.”

Roose Pioneers take on Chester Gladiators at Holbeck Park in division three. Mike Light is ruled out with a knee injury which he picked up two weeks ago, while several players face late fitness tests.
