Conference second tier swings into action

The 2017 campaign gets under way on Saturday for teams in the Kingstone Press Cider National Conference League’s First Division.


The 12 teams in the section were on the sidelines last week, when fixtures commenced in the Premier, Second and Third Divisions.


A highlight of the programme is the clash between Hunslet Club Parkside, who have won successive championships to reach Division One, and Featherstone Lions, who narrowly missed out to Skirlaugh in last year’s Division One Promotion Final.
