Hawks in cup action at the Woodlands: Sarries walk-over

Fylde Hawks & Fylde Saracens were both scheduled to have been in cup action at the Woodlands on Saturday, 14th October (ko 3pm). With the 1sts also at home against league leaders Coventry, the Clubhouse will be rocking tomorrow!

The Hawks squad take on Lymm 2nds in the 1st Round of the Brooke Edgley Specialist Technical Services Cup. The selected squad is:

15 Matthew Bargh; 14 Sam Fisher, 13 Jake Foster, 12 Ben Aitken, 11 Christian Williams; 10 Josh Melvin, 9 Jon Green; 1 Josh Oldland, 2 Tom Fox, 3 Adam Joyner, 4 Karl Capstick, 5 Ali Atkinson, 6 Gregor Aitken, 7 Tom Beresford, 8 Billy Roberts.

16 Ben Gill, 17 Mark Capstick, 18 Sam Patterson.

Note the return of two former 1st teamers, lock Ali Atkinson and scrum-half Jon Green. It also features at no 8, trialist Billy Roberts, a young Cornish player from Bude.

Like their 1st team in the North Premier league, Lymm are flying high in the Cotton Traders Championship, one level down from the Hawks’ Premier Division, with 6 wins out of 6. They will offer a real challenge to the Hawks, holders of the Cup for the past two seasons.


Fylde Saracens were due to have welcomed Warrington 2nds to the Woodlands in a Lighting & Building Services Jug tie (ko 3pm). Both teams are in the Sale Sharks Division One, the Sarries in 7th, their opponents in 10th.

Unfortunately, the visitors pulled out of the game on Friday evening.
