Your News Northern challengers eye National Under 17 semi-finals

WINNINGTON Park RUFC and Trentham from South Lancashire & Cheshire Division One and Two respectively will meet in the only comparatively ‘local’ final of the Northern Section of the National Under 17 Knockout competition on April 4.

Park, beaten at the National Semi-final stage last season, are just one game away from a return to the last four of the Plate section having edged out visitors Wharfedale in the regional semis on Sunday. Trentham underlined the strength of their challenge by winning at Old Brodleians near Halifax, where the topography can prove a valuable advantage to the home side.

Elsewhere in the competition, teams will be crossing the Pennines in all three sections. There will be a Roses match element when Otley entertain Manchester in the Cup, West Park Leeds cross into Cheshire for their Bowl final against Altrincham Kersal and Blaydon face an even longer trip in the Shield final when they visit Tyldesley.
