Hensingham v Distington takes place in Whitehaven on Saturday...

The Cumbria Men's League Grand Final takes place this weekend with local rivals Hensingham and Distington all set to go head-to-head.

The two West Cumbria clubs are separated by just five miles and were just one place apart on the final Cumbria Men's League table; Hensingham finishing top and Dis claiming second spot.

Hensingham have enjoyed a superb 2017, avoiding defeat in the league all year. Meanwhile Distingon, who represented the league in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup this season, backed up their all-conquering campaign of 2016 with another successful year which has seen them finish second in the league.

Saturday's game could go either way as Dis, who boast the league's best defensive record, go up against Hensingham, who have outscored every other team in the division this year.
