The first round of the BARLA Youth and Junior Cups saw highs and lows for our two teams playing at the weekend. In a tense, nail-biting finish the Under 14s were just beaten by Normanton Knights U14s by two points, 16-14. The Stanley coaches were proud of the team and their performance in such a tough game (match report). In the Under 13s Cup, the Under 13s won their home tie against Thornhill Trojans 26-16 and will go through to a second round match at home against Hull Dockers on the 19th November. Also on the 19th November, the Under 12s will begin their cup run with a home game against Dearne Valley Bulldogs. NB. the current age group teams are playing in the year above cup ties.
