Former rugby league players in the Maryport area come together to form a masters team
Former rugby league players in the Maryport area have come together to form a masters team.
And they have wasted no time in getting back into the sport as the newly-formed Netherhall Masters have just played their first game at Ambleside in a Masters festival.
Masters Rugby League has become very popular nationally and is for players Over-35 and older who are able enough to play, with the eldest player in the Netherhall side being 68.
The sport is taking off in the county as well, with an established team in west Cumbria and new sides forming in Carlisle and Cockermouth.
Players from all the major amateur RL clubs in the Maryport area have come together to form the team.
And they are looking to a busy season ahead with home games and festivals to be played at the Netherhall RUFC ground.
