TRAFFORD MV wrap up their North Lancs/Cumbria Division campaign at relegated Workington on Saturday, looking to end on a winning note.

The season has proved to be a learning curve for MV who, despite strong competitive performances in the early half of the season, struggled to obtain wins.

Losing bonus points proved invaluable as the team just kept their head above the relegation zone.

Fortunes changed in recent weeks with MV winning five out of their last six games to climb to 10th place as Cumbrian sides Workington, Silloth and Upper Eden went down.

MV will have a better idea of what to expect next season and will be looking to bring their senior colts through as well as recruiting new talent.

As the rugby season draws to a close cricket takes over the outfields at MV's MacPherson Park and their season opens this Saturday with the first XI playing Pott Shrigley at home from 1pm, while the seconds play the reverse fixture.
