The Easter weekend is finally upon us and some lockdown restrictions are starting to ease.

There is light at the end of a long tunnel and this weekend you can enjoy meeting some friends and family outdoors, abiding by the rule of six, or two households.

But there are obviously still a lot of restrictions still in place, as we continue the battle against coronavirus as a nation.

So we thought we would take the chance to look back in the archives to see what we were doing in Easters past.

One of the biggest events on the calendar for local sporting fans was always the traditional Good Friday derby between Whitehaven and Workington Town.

The two teams currently sit in separate divisions so this fixture is not on the calendar but it was a regular for many years and always highly anticipated by fans from both clubs.

Today we have decided to hark back to 2014 when the clash was held at the Recreation Ground and Haven ran out narrow 22-16 winners in a close clash.

It was the visitors Town who had the edge with 16 minutes remaining of the clash, played out in bright sunshine.

They led 16-12 thanks to three tries in the first half but it was clear that Haven were in no mood to sit back and take a defeat.

And it was the try scoring machine that is Jessie Joe Parker who came to their rescue and ran in two tries in a tense four minute period, with a goal from Cain Southernwood to seal the victory and the local bragging rights.

Early on in the game Lee Doran had bagged a try, as had Larsen Marabe and Southernwood finished the day with three goals to his name.

The Town tries came from Carl Forber, Connor Farrell, Jason Mossop, with two Forber goals.

Haven begin their Championship season this weekend, although fans won't be allowed into the games until later in May.
