Sharlston Rovers continued their quest for a clean sweep of trophies this season by beating Westgate Wolves 56-4 to lift the Brian McDermott Memorial Trophy.

Rovers were on top throughout against a valiant Westgate side to claim their third trophy from as many finals this season following success in the Yorkshire Cup and Pennine Presidents Cup.

Winger Ian Jackson was the star of the show with a hat-trick to ensure he received the Jack Thompson Memorial Trophy for the man of the match honours.

The Weeland Road club scored four tries to storm into a commanding 20-0 lead at half-time.

Wayne McHugh, Gareth Davies, Ryan Mallinder and Jackson, who also kicked two goals, crossed the line.

Wolves had a try chalked off on the resumption and Sharlston’s reply came from Jackson, who scored two superb tries for his treble.

Stand-off Scott Glassell pushed Jackson all the way for man of the match honours with an impressive performance capped off with a try.

Brother Danny Glassell, McHugh and Davies also crossed for a brace of second half tries each with Jackson completing the scoring with another four goals.

Paul Townend scored the Wolves consolation try.

The match was part of a final double header, with Crigglestone beating Eastmoor 38-6 in the U17s final, sponsored by Wakefield Community Trust.

Cooke scored a hat-trick for Crigglestone, with Arrowsmith, Smith and Saul also crossing the line. Smith added five conversions.

The only Eastmoor try came from Bowie, with Peel kicking the goal.
