Lewis Hilton

The club has been greatly saddened to learn of the loss of Lewis Hilton at the young age of 19. Lewis was admitted to Huddersfield ICU with suspected meningitis on Friday 26th January and sadly passed away on the morning of Sunday the 28th after failing to respond to medication.

He has been at the club since the age of 6 and was in the first training sessions when we set up our junior section with only 4 or 5 players. Lewis played through every age group through to Colts and was a mainstay of this season's Development (2nd) team. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Morley, Tracy and relatives.

The family request no flowers, but donations to the charity, Meningitis Now, would be appreciated.

Donations to Meningitis Now can be made through the Lewis Hilton Forever Fund

Rishworthians v Hullensians
Tuesday 24th Apr 7:30pm

Rishworthians last league game is on Tuesday 24th April under floodlights at Pontefract. This game will be a double header league and Yorkshire Shield game. Games between the sides have been called off three times this season because of the weather and the Shield game has to take place soon to get in matches ahead of the final. To accommodate this Rishworthians have agreed to play midweek and because of travelling times have agreed to play it halfway under lights at Pontefract even though it should be a home fixture for us. Barring injuries we hope to be at full strength for what will also double as the scheduled league game.

Brodleians 13 - 16 Rishworthians

Rishworthians produce a great win over local rivals and leapfrog over Brods to move up to 7th place in the league. With Heath losing to Middlesbrough it means there will be 4 Halifax clubs in Yorkshire 1 next season.
