IT promises to be a busy weekend for Fylde hooker Alan Holmes.

He is on the bench for the match with Harrogate, and on Sunday, he assumes the role of head coach for Lancashire under-20s, who take on Cheshire at Liverpool St Helens, the opening match in the age group’s County Championship.

He said: “Cheshire will be a tough game – they are strong up front and we will look to take them on head-on in the forward challenge.

“This year, only the group winners go forwards to the next round – every match will be vital, but we are confident we have a strong squad and will be competitive.”
