FRYSTON Warriors booked their place in the Carnegie Challenge Cup third round for the first time in their history with Saturday’s magnificent 16-12 win over Bradford Dudley Hill.

Yorkshire League Fryston visit Co-operative Championship club Batley Bulldogs on the weekend of March 5 and 6 after toppling National Conference League Premier Division Dudley.

Centre Lee Land narrowly pipped Gareth Handford and Mark Castle for Fryston’s man of the match award in a tremendous team display in heavy conditions.

Fryston made a cracking start with James Cryer’s early touchdown.

Dudley replied with a converted try but Fryston regained the lead when Handford put in Andy Speake.

Andy Matthews went over in the second-half to put them further ahead.

Speake’s second goal made it 16-6 and although Dudley Hill got another converted try to set up a tense last five minutes they were unable to crack the home defence again.
