KEIGHLEYS decision to surrender home advantage in Round One of the National RU Under 17 Knockout competition because of a junior festival at their ground may have proved expensive.

With over 500 youngsters due at the Yorkshiremens headquarters, they agreed to take their National Shield game to Tyldesley, where they managed a 19-19 draw in a tense tussle.

Tyldesley, however, scored three tries to two to edge home and earn a trip to Marple in the Northern group semi-finals.

Consolation for Keighley came via the fact that their Junior Festival attracted the biggest influx of youngsters ever to congregate at the club.

Two of last seasons beaten National semi-finalists Lymm and Winnington Park also progressed, but the third team to fall at the penultimate hurdle last time, Caldy, went down 19-0 at home to Wharfedale.
