The first teams from all of Calderdale’s six rugby union clubs were in action together for the last time this season on Saturday.

Heath’s promotion hopes in Yorkshire One perished with a 35-15 home defeat by Middlesbrough while Old Rishworthians snatched a 16-13 derby win at Old Brodleians courtesy of winger Anthony Shoesmith’s late try.

Old Crossleyans rounded off their promotion-winning Yorkshire Two campaign with a 52-24 win at Roundhegians while Halifax Vandals’ disappointing season continued with a 29-13 defeat at Wath Upon Dearne in their penultimate game.

Halifax were convincing 43-7 winners at Sheffield Oaks in the Yorkshire Four Shield competition.
