It's second against third this Saturday, when Clitheroe travel down the A59 to Ormskirk.
It is also probably, to your correspondents knowledge, the first time the two clubs have faced each other at 1st XV level in league rugby. Back in the Raging Bull league days Clitheroe were pitched agianst Ormskirk 2's & 3's but with the maroons sideways jump back into the RFU league we find ourselvese facing the top team.
Like Clitheroe – 'Kirk have lost just the once in the league so far this term. And like Clitheroe it was Garstang who were their undoing.
So it will be a fascinating encounter down at Green Lane on Saturday; can Clitheroe do a clean sweep of all Ormskirk teams, or will home advantage take it's toll??
Want to find out ? Then get down to support the boys.
Kick off is at 3pm
The postcode for ORUFC is L39 1ND.
There is no 2nd XV fixture as the scheduled opponents, Broughton 2's have been expelled after too many concedes.
On Sunday the Colts are back in action [weather/ground permitting] at Littlemoor. Again a new club to face – this time it is Newcastle [Staffs] who make the long trip to the Ribble Valley for a 12.30 pm kick off.
Our referee , back for the second week, is Mr Simon Vale from the Manchester Society.
We wish Simon, the Newcastle players, staff and supporters a pleasant afternoon at Littlemoor.
