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.
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!"
