Chairman Andrew Carney added

"Congratulations to Gareth and the First XV team for top win v Eagle this evening at LSH in the Floodlit trophy - excellent performance guys!Possibly best I've seen and the great news is that there were 6 colts playing."

The game had been postponed from March because of a combination of frost, rain and the ridiculous spring weather. When the idea for this competition was floated it was expected that the evenings would be lighter, the temperatures much warmer and the rugby would be being played in much balmier conditions (this time last year the worry was of droughts and the temperatures were much, much higher).

The next game is a juicy local derby against high-flying Tarleton on Wednesday 1st May, who beat Eagle 33-10 in their opening fixture. Game on!

Liverpool Society is fully behind the event and is using the event to assist in the development of their referees and the first match was witnessed by the Lancashire County General Committee who all had an opportunity to witness the initiative and were full of praise for the clubs getting involved.

Each game is recorded and a very professional job is being done. A West Lancashire Floodlit Cup playlist has been created and a highlights package of each game will be ready a few days after. It's a great tool for the players to look at - check the links below.
