Cleckheaton prepare for Billingham test

CLECKHEATON’S hopes of making it three wins from three in National League Three North have been put on hold for another week after their game with Rossendale was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Cleckheaton team had arrived at Rossendale’s Marl Pits ground assured the game would go ahead, but after torrential rain from late morning onwards last Saturday the referee postponed the fixture, which will now take place on Easter Saturday (March 26).

This weekend will see the Moorenders travel to face Billingham in the league (2.15pm).

Meanwhile, last Sunday witnessed Cleck youngster Cameron Burnhill (pictured right) feature in the Yorkshire Under-20s side that beat  a spirited Northumberland team  30-10 away in the National County Championship.

The game was played in challenging conditions at Morpeth RUFC.
