SHARLSTON ROVERS made it a Wakefield cup double as they beat Westgate Wolves 28-16 in the final of the Brian McDermott Memorial Trophy.

In what was a repeat of the Wakefield ARL President’s Cup earlier this month, which saw Rovers come out on top 36-28, the BARLA National Cup finalists again proved too strong for their Pennine League rivals at Stanley’s Lee Moor Road ground on Wednesday night.

Danny Glassell, Tommy Malyan (2), Lee Lingard, Jonathan Waddle and Matt Johnson scored for Rovers while Stu Moran, Ryan Chalkley and Casey Johnson replied for the Wolves.

Leeds Rhinos head coach Brian McDermott was in attendance to hand out the trophy and awards in a competition named in honour of his late father.
