The Standard Cup

OLDHAM ST ANNES v ROCHDALE MAYFIELD

GOOD FRIDAY, 11.45AM KICK-OFF AT OLDHAM RUGBY UNION, BLYTH ST, BARDSLEY, OLDHAM

In a repeat of the 2017 final, St Annes were seeking revenge against their fierce Rochdale rivals Mayfield.

The competition first won by Heyside in 1904, is still going as stong as ever 114 years later.

The final was sponsored once again by O’Rourke Glass, from Ellen St, Oldham and the Man of the Match award was sponsored by Rugby Oldham. Matthew Whitehead of St. Annes was adjudged the winner despite being on the losing side as Mayfield completed their 8th successive victory, an unparalleled run of success in the 114 years of the competition, before a very healthy crowd of around 600.
