Friendlies and Cup Results
Three games so far and 1 win, 2 losses,
Lock Lane was a great tester for Skirlaugh with both sides committed to winning. Fast and explosive with some great plays. Result 20 - 14 to Lock Lane.
The Challenge Cup saw Skirlaugh visit Dewsbury Moor, and this was a tuff test at a very hostile environment.
Dewsbury where heavily supported, and this may have had a reflection on there performance. The battle for the middle was certainly in Dewsburys favour on this occassion.Still some work to do.
Next was the National Cup and Skirlaugh entertained Haydock at Eastside. This was a changed side from the previous week at Dewsbury Moor and it proved to be a positive change. Skirlaugh dominated the middle with some great forward play. Some good moves in the backs also proved to much for Haydock to handle, but its worth mentioning the visitors never gave up.
Welldone Skirlaugh on the first victory of the season 24 - 10.

We are proud to present the 2019 New Home & Away Kit
The new designed kits takes Skirlaugh RLFC back to its routes with the red kit being one of the very first kits to be used back in the 1980s.
In the late 80s early 1990s the Black kit was introduced and became a daunting site running out on any rugby pitch.
The Black kit will be used as the No1 Home kit, with the red kit a 3rd strip used when ever a clash is forseeable away from home in the NCL1.
