Big Game Preview – The Billy Barnes Cup

Tomorrow (Sat 9th Dec) we welcome Cartha QP to Braidholm for the second leg of the inaugural Billy Barnes Cup and it is all set to be a fantastic occasion. The pre-match lunch is packed and we hope to see a big crowd on the touchline supporting the teams. GHA hold a narrow aggregate lead from the first leg at Dumbreck back in September where they came away with a 27-34 win so it is all to play for. Kick Off is 2pm.

Tickets available on the gate: Adult £8 | Concession £5 | U18s FREE
Food and Refreshments available incl. £1 Pies & Hot Drinks
