Manchester, Lancaster, Cheltenham and Birmingham go through in Youth Boys to Qualification Round.
Manchester had a difficult group to come through in the Preliminary stages clinching victory over Watford 6-4 to claim a place in the first semi-final. Second placed Castleford in Group A going out in the second semi-final 7-5 to winners Lancaster. With the late withdrawal of Invicta from Group B the group was wide open and first time entrants, Welsh Wanderers, pushed the top two sides hard. A close fought 5-3 win for Cheltenham over Birmingham sets it up for an interesting Qualification Round in Walsall on 2 and 3 April.
Full results to be issued shortly.
