Rimington were left without a game on Saturday as their Craven Cup clash at Hellifield Sports was called off.

The hosts were unable to raise a team, meaning the tie was postponed.

Rimington were hoping to start the defence of the trophy they have won in seven of the last nine seasons, beating Ingleton Town 3-0 in last season’s final at Skipton Town to continue their dominance of the competition.

Rimington Reserves were also without a fixture on Saturday.

Terry Braithwaite’s side will hope to return to action in the East Lancashire League First Division tomorrow when they travel to face Mill Hill, kick-off 2-15 p.m.

Rimington have won seven games on the spin in all competitions, and have started their league campaign with a 100% record after six outings.

Meanwhile, the club have confirmed details of their next fundraising event, the Rimington Ball, which will take place on November 14th at the Mytton Fold Hotel from 7-30 p.m.

The evening will be compered by entertainer and Rat Pack singer Russell Shaun.

It will include a three-course dinner plus coffee, after dinner comedian Billy Bean and disco.

The dress code will be black-tie or lounge suits.

Tickets are priced at £35 per head or a table of 10 can be purchased for £325.

The club are hoping to attract sponsorship for the event and are also hoping to host a charity auction.

For details, speak to a committee member or contact Martin Lawson (07759 265959) after 7 p.m.
