Millom Rugby League club will host the 2013 Challenge Cup second round draw on Friday January 18 as part of the Cumbrian club’s 140th birthday celebrations. The Challenge Cup second round draw will involve 14 Conference League Premier clubs, the three Armed Services teams and the five clubs that have progressed from the first round.

The balls will be drawn by Millom club stalwart Gary Kelly and Workington Town player Peter Lupton, who played for Millom as a junior before signing professional terms at London Broncos.

Millom treasurer Gary Kelly said: “Millom Rugby League club is recognised as the oldest amateur club in the world, and as we enter our 140th year it is an honour that we have been chosen to host the prestigious Challenge Cup draw. I have been involved with Millom since the age of 12 and have represented the club at all amateur levels: for me it is a privilege to be drawing the teams in the second round of the 2013 Rugby League Challenge Cup.”

Millom football club was originally formed as Victoria Rangers on December 5, 1873 at a meeting held at the Station Hotel in Millom with the formal opening of their pitch and first game taking place on December 13 1873. Such was the interest created that a rival team by the name of Millom Rangers was formed following a meeting in a wash-house of a terraced house in the town. The White Star and Rangers teams could not accommodate all the local talent and soon the town boasted four clubs with the emergence of Millom St George and Millom St James.

This situation continued until December 1883, when influential supporters called a meeting, where the decision was taken to amalgamate the White Star, the Rangers and Millom St George into one club, to be called Millom Rugby Football Club.

Which Championship 1 clubs are not taking part in the 3rd round of the cup? The 11 winners from this round will go in to the hat with the Championship and Championship1 clubs but there are 14 and 9 clubs respectively so who is not taking part?

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

All Championship and Championship 1 clubs I would guess plus 2 French sides? Needs to be 36 in round 3.
