Tigers Claw Local Rivals 7-1

Cleckheaton’s eight man 8-15 team managed to clinch the Club’s first silverware of the season against local rivals East Bierley on Saturday.

The annual Spen Trophy was a close fought affair away from home last year, but on home turf, the Cleckheaton Team were able to secure a strong victory with six wins and two halves.

The team was well led by Richard Carmichael and Vice-Captain John Armitage, who hope this win will inspire the Rabbits Team to regain the Spen Spoon in a few weeks’ time.


Below is the team and their match results. Congratulations to them all for a great result.
