Sunday 16 February - Match 6

Beauchief A played Sheffield C away and lost 12 - 8.  However, they retain =3rd place and play York C in the final match, so, barring a disaster, they will stay comfortably in Div 3

Beauchief B braved Storm Dennis to play away against Halifax A  and drew 10 - 10.  They are still a close 2nd in Division  7 and have every chance of promotion as they play the bottom team in Div 7, Harrogate C, in their last match.

No pressure then - just Onwards and Upwards !!!
