Keswick celebrate league title and promotion

Date: Friday 8th March 2019

KNOWING a win would seal top spot in the Cumbria League and promotion to level six rugby, Keswick took the field at Davidson Park on Saturday against Aspatria — the only team which could, on paper, overtake them — and clinched a 10-5 victory.

Despite testing conditions, with the rain teeming down all match and the wind growing in the second half to favour the visitors, a vocal and appreciative crowd saw an exciting game in which neither side would admit defeat.
