25 November 2017 HICKSON TROPHY DRAW

The Annual one-day Knock-Out tournament for the Hickson Trophy has been set for Friday 13 July 2018. This is competed for by eight Yorkshire town's representative teams who take turns in hosting it. This year Castleford have that honour and our team will play their first match against the hosts in the 2018 competition.
 
Our team has been beaten in the final for the last two years by the Bradford team but that will not happen this year as both teams have been drawn in the same half of the draw with a semi-final clash the furthest that at least one of us will go. The greens are still to be finalised but the full draw is:
 
                       Huddersfield v Castleford
                              Skipton v Bradford
                               Halifax v Barnsley
                             Sheffield v Leeds
