Local sides included in BARLA National Cup draw
The draw for the first round of the BARLA National Cup took place last night.
Just 23 teams have entered the competition this year but a host of clubs from around the area will be involved.
Sharlston Rovers, winners in 2011, will look to bounce back from last year’s final defeat against old foes Queens and face a trip to Bradford-based Wyke in the first round.
A feisty derby match is in store at Ossett Trinity when Dewsbury Moor make the short trip, while Drighlington will visit Thornhill Trojans A.
Only seven matches will be played in the first round, with the remaining nine sides receiving byes into the second round.
The first round will take place on Saturday, February 9 with the draw for the second round taking place the following day.
