Challenge Cup draw comes to Millom

MILLOM rugby league club, the oldest amateur team in the world, celebrated their 140th anniversary by hosting the second round draw of the Rugby League Challenge Cup.

The draw at the clubhouse was conducted by Nick Boothroyd of the Rugby Football League, who thanked the Millom club for the invitation to hold the ceremony.

Boothroyd was accompanied in making the draw by Millom stalwart and treasurer Gary Kelly, and locally-born Peter Lupton, the Workington player who formerly played Super League for Welsh side Crusaders and London Broncos.

Former Millom legends Ron “Ceddy” Jackson, Gerry Cummings and Peter Jordan were among the invited guests.

More than 100 people turned up to witness the event and saw the Challenge Cup.

Kelly said: “It went very well. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. The Challenge Cup was right in front of our shield and it looked really impressive, they brought the proper draw balls with them and it was a good, professional job.”

The draw is: Myton Warriors v Leeds Metropolitan University, West Hull v Hull Dockers, Hunslet Old Boys v Saddleworth Rangers, Leigh Miners Rangers v Milford Marlins, Wigan St Patricks v Thatto Heath Crusaders, East Hull v Siddal, Royal Air Force v East Leeds, Blackbrook v Oulton Raiders, Leigh East v British Army, Royal Navy v Skirlaugh, Ince Rose Bridge v Wath Brow Hornets.

The ties will be played on Saturday, March 9.
