25 posts in this topic

The draw for the third round of the 2013 Tetley’s Challenge Cup will take place in Oxford tomorrow (Wednesday March 13) when 36 clubs enter two pools to determine the 18 ties that will be played over the weekend of April 6 and 7.

The clubs will be split into separate pools of 18, Pools A and B: Pool A will comprise the 14 Kingstone Press Championship clubs plus four Championship One clubs; Pool B features five Championship One clubs, French clubs Toulouse Olympique and Carcassonne and the 11 winning teams from last weekend’s second round ties.

Ahead of the main draw at 1.00pm, a preliminary draw will take place to randomly determine which Championship One clubs will be placed in Pool B.

Think we played them about 30 years ago in the first round.

Sean Richardson, remember him, used to play for Leigh. He's with Blackbrook. Arguably best player is Steve Parkinson.

Never heard of them. Do they have a stadium or do they play in a field?

When we drew them about 30 year ago it was played at Saints ground.

Are you sure that wasn't Pilkington Recs? Think it was 1980.

You could be right. :rolleyes:

From the St Helens Star newspaper:

Blackbrook and York City Knights will play their 3rd Round Tetley's Challenge Cup Tie at Langtree Park.

The tie will take place on Sunday, 7 April with a 3pm Kick Off.

Admission will be £10 for an adult who claim up to 3 free tickets for under 14's. Tickets will be available from the ticket

office on the Match Day.

Brook declined the easy option of reversing the tie to York and are confident the Rugby Supporters of the Town

will back them and turn out in numbers to support the team on the day.

Let's hope they do or they'll go bust - it's a big financial risk for them tbh, unless the Saints are helping them out.

We played Pilkington Recs in 1981, the police had to get on the supporters coach to and escort us out of Merseyside because the nice people of the area were chucking bricks at the coach. We played Blackbrook in the late 60's/early 70's.

Aye, don't think they could believe it, we were singing, they scored and cheered, cheering died down and we were still singing. Quality night if not a little wet.
