Think Egremont had few injuries over the past few years with going in the cup which meant few there A team lads had to play most of the season.

Dont think they entered last year which seemed to Benefit them as they in the top 3 most of last year

Some clubs don’t enter now like Cumbria 1 said because of the expense. Not all clubs in division three get invited, only the promoted ones. 

He didnt mention expense.

Also Millom & Woolston were not promoted, they are in.

Apart form these your post is spot on. ?

There was a travel grant last season worked out on far is travelled, there is prize money from the 3rd round onwards.

 

Used to get a share of the gate as well.


Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

I think it does and then any profit left from the gate is split

….after all expenses are deducted.    If you get a bad draw with vert few species, you could end up with a negative amount once costs for all sorts (doctors, stewards, etc etc) are deducted.

Looking forward to the draw tomorrow. Love the challenge cup, our win against Keighley in 2004 was still one of the best performances I have ever seen. Considering the amount of 17/18/19 year olds we had in the side too of which a few went on to play pro. Still think it is the only time an amateur club has beaten a team at championship level, led by the mercurial Chris Robinson who also played a fair bit at Keighley.

Great days that can bring the club together. They handed us our rear ends in 2014 though when we went back although we won the second half haha

Cawoods (West Hull) was the first team to beat a pro team I believe.

Not the first but the first in a long, long time. I have the programme from that game. It was against Halifax. It was the John Player trophy. Without checking my records I think the first in the Challenge cup (in the modern era) was Beverley .v. Highfield.

Correct Kenny.

They were the first amateur side to beat a professional side in 1908 and also the first in the modern era 1995.

They actually were beaten at home in the 2nd round by Normanton but both sides had played ineligible players andthey won the replay 2 weeks later

Yeah they lost 14-16 to Normanton but my info was that a replay was ordered because Normanton had fielded an illegible player. I thought that was strange because normally they would just put Beverley through in that situation. Anyway they beat Normanton 20-10 in the replay then won 27-4 at Highfield before losing to Batley 20-30 at Hull FC. Really looking forward to the draw tonight so I can pick which game to go to.

Ah right, we were told no one had beaten a pro side at championship level, its obviously happened a few times from league 1 level. Was just checking as someone mentioned Sharlston beating Dewsbury but Dews were national league 2 then in 2004, still a great win.

Theres nothing better than seeing amateurs go real toe to toe with the pros. When we were in National League 3 and the promises that brought! We were in the northern rail cup, finished top of the group so went into the next round, played Hull KR away. We were the better side for 20 minutes, we were 10 nil up ad you just started to get a bit of a feeling we might have a chance. Then they brought Mikaili Aizue off the bench and that completely changed the game haha think it finished 50-16 great effort.

Our more recent Challenge Cup ties apart from the last Keighley one in 2014 we played Batley after beating Keighley who had a real good side then Joe Berry, and Shad Royston in the side and got well beaten. Also played Dewsbury and got beat 60-0 Richard Chapman tore us apart from hooker all day

We beat York in 1997 at their place too 21-14
