Anybody remember 1991 in the Lancashire Cup? :D


Nearly 3,500 saw Town beat Widnes 27 - 18 with tries from Ashton, Penrice and McLean. Ashton scored a drop goal and Weir kicked seven goals.

That was the season we were in an 8 team league and finished bottom.    In fact we won more matches in cup competitions than we did in the league!!!!


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.

I must admit that my favourite match against Widnes was the one we regretfully lost, with the game in doubt to the last moment. That was the Lancashire Cup Final of 1976. The days of Jim Mills and Iain MacCorquodale.

Gee that was a hard league Keith and a chastening experience for us , and we had a good team ! Carlisle were strong , and teams like Rochdale and Sheffield to . Really tough every week . And we played 4 times ! I shudder every team I here 8 team leagues proposed . Any league should have a minimum of 12 , pity to here John Kear cheer leading for the RFL proposals last night .

John Kear may be a Championship club coach but he is a Super League wannabe at the bottom of his heart.    He writes a column every week in the League Weekly newspaper and it's all about Super League, very rarely mentions Championship.

Early views on the Widnes Forum suggest the following formation

Owens

Dean
Marsh
Phelps
Flynn

Brown
Mellor

O'Carroll
Clarke
Pickersgill
Winterstein
Hock
Allen

Craven, Joseph, Kavanagh, White.

But I think Lawton and Gore might be given a game.

Really looking forward to seeing Hock play on Sunday, but was surprised by his inclusion as previously Mick Cassidy stated that he was cup-tied to Wigan. Perhaps that clause has been rescinded since his agreed move to the NRL next season.
