Egremont ran out 60-14 winners in the Jackie Davidson Memorial Cup clash with Hensingham.

After a hard-fought contest which saw no quarter given by either side, the Mont came out on top in the annual game which is played in memory of the rugby league stalwart who was a player, coach and more in the local game.

It means the Rangers have now lifted the cup in each of the three years that the game has been played.

The total money raised was made up to £1,000 by Hensingham Vice Presidents, to be split equally between the youth sections.

Graham Broatch, Hensingham's rugby league secretary, said: "Egremont showed why they are an NCL Premier Division team, being being solid in defence and far more clinical in attack to capitalise on even the smallest of errors.

"Hensingham will take a lot of positives from the game and a number of areas they can tighten up prior to the first game on February 22 at Waterhead (Oldham),

"The day was more than the game and the bumper crowd enjoyed the entertainment on and off the field."

The game was followed by live music from Logan Paul Murphy.

Egremont's tries were scored by man-of-the-match Leon Crellin, Adam Heal, Michael Elwood, Matt Hutchins, Jack Thompson, Kieran Glenn, Adam Barton, Tom Horner, Matt Bewsher, Toby Corrie, Sam Appleby and Frazer McNee. Billy Thompson also added six goals.

Aaron Turnbull scored a brace of tries for Hensingham and was their man of the match, while Gary Palmer added another. Goals came from Jack Kellet and Josh Hillier.
