What's On

Membership Renewal Update


28 Clubs have renewed their membership this year and we should like to know what would entice others back.




In order for the DSC to progress, we desperately need volunteers to come forward for the positions of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.  As you should know we haven't had a Treasurer since August 2017, when John Cox retired and financial affairs have been undertaken by the Secretary, Fred Crawford.

St Helens Town:   

A hectic week-end of two matches in three days gave them just one point


Liverpool St Helens:   

Despite being 22-7 at half time, they lost to Oldham 25-22 in the ADM's M J Worsley Cup but as each of the 3 teams in the group had only won one match they made it to the semi-final on points difference. They also kept pace with the leaders at the top of the ADM Premier League with a splendid 61-14 over Trafford MV and their winning streak continued with a 29-11 triumph over Aldwinians.


West Park:  

Bonus points kept them on the top of the table despite a hesitant start against Littleborough.


Prescot Ladies:  Continue to pile on pressure at the top of the Stockport table with an excellent 3-1 away win at Didsbury.


Thatto Heath Crusaders & Haydock  have made it through to the 2nd round of the RFL Challenge Cup.


Thatto Heath beat Staningley 32-6 and will now meet Leigh Miners Rangers while Haydock beat Dewsbury 28-16 and will meet Normanton Knights
