Getting to a game!

There are amateur matches aplenty on offer this weekend for the grass roots enthusiast.


Oliver Roby picks out just three…


Leigh Miners Rangers v Lock Lane


Leigh Miners Rangers are celebrating 50 years since their formation this weekend.


A part of a huge event of to mark the occasion, a number of former players have been invited to attend.


The likes of Leigh Centurions star Martyn Ridyard and two-time Super League Grand Final winner Tommy Martyn are set to take part in a Q and A session ahead of the game, which will see two of the NCL’s leading clubs go head-to-head.


Tickets cost £5 for both the pre-match event and admission to the Kingstone Press Cider National Conference League Premier Division game against Lock Lane.


Saturday – 2.30pm



Walney Central v Distington


Table-topping Distington face arguably their toughest test to date as they look to continue their 100 per cent record in the Cumbria Men’s League in 2016.


They travel to Walney on Saturday, looking to make it 13 wins from 13 games in the league, but the hosts have already racked up big scores this season, such as a 74-0 win over Roose Pioneers and a 74-6 win against Wath Brow Hornets’ second string.

Bentley v Queensbury


The Yorkshire Men’s League Division 1 title race is hotting up.


With the season set to come to an end next month, the top three teams in the league are separated by just a point.


Second-placed Queensbury travel to third-placed Bentley on Saturday knowing a win could see them move top, but Bentley, who are level on points with league leaders Batley Boys, will be harbouring their own hopes of success this weekend


Saturday – 2.30pm
