HUNSLET CLUB Parkside will face Wigan St Patrick’s in the National Conference Trophy final, at Batley Bulldogs’ Fox’s Biscuit Stadium, Mount Pleasant, on Saturday, September 23.

Parkside are aiming to go one better than last year when they were beaten in the decider by Rochdale Mayfield.

The south Leeds club saw off Milford Marlins at the semi-final stage for the second successive year, cruising to a 26-0 victory.

Full-back Craig McShane – brother of coach and Castleford Tigers star Paul McShane – was outstanding for Parkside, who led 20-0 at the break.

Stand-off Andy Hullock scored the opening try with only three minutes on the clock, Jamie Fields adding the extras to that and a touchdown by loose-forward Craig Miles 12 minutes later.

Hullock landed a penalty on 35 minutes and improved centre Dale Harris’ touchdown just before the half-time interval.

Parkside’s other centre, Jack Kirmond, went over five minutes into the second half and Hullock’s goal completed the scoring.

Hunslet’s Fields and Adam Biscomb were sin-binned, along with opponents Elliot Watmough and John Elkington.

Next month’s decider will be part of a double-header with the Yorkshire Men’s League Grand Final.
