Merseyside Challenge Cup

Unison won their second match, beating Wandering Star (Liverpool) 39-16 with Darren Martin scoring 18. Colly Wobblers could not quite manage a second win, going down 28-31 to Yarboroughs (Warrington), although they gained one point in the table for a close defeat.

Greyhound won their first match 45-25 against Wallaseyans (Wirral). A score of 23 by John Wilson was the highlight of a night of low individual scores. Abbey Sinners went down 25-28 to Aigburth People (Liverpool) gaining one point in the table for the close defeat.

The final round of matches in the group stage to be played next month will decide which teams qualify for the Cup and which play in the Plate.
