Cumbria Masters shine at Cockermouth

The biggest-ever Cumbrian Masters festival!

Grasmere Sport Centre, Cockermouth, the venue for the Cumbria Masters Festival, was bathed in sunshine as 15 teams and almost 200 players turned out last Saturday.

This was the largest-ever Cumbria festival as teams from Hull, York, Leeds, Wakefield, Warrington (Crosfields & Rylands), Leyland, Barrow, (Barrow & Hindpool), Blackpool, Leigh and Wigan (St Jude's & Hindley) joined host club, West Cumbria, and newcomers Carlisle.

The new Masters players were warmly welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

Festival awards:

Master of the Day: Blackpool's Wade Kelly

Masters Moment: for a great GREEN shorter try Ray Timson

Team of the Festival: Hull Dockers (and their helpers from Hindley!)

Masters Cumbria rep, Dave Farrell, summed up the day: "It's been a great festival! A brilliant setting, sunshine and so many players enjoying Masters Rugby League!"
