BLACKBROOK Royals had the honour of walking out with the England national team ahead of their test match against the Kiwis at Anfield on Sunday.

And they saw a team skippered by a former Blackbrook Junior - James Graham - wrap up the series.

It turned into a good weekend for the junior club with a number of Royals nominated for NWC 13-15 player of the year awards.

U15 Prem Dan Ganson and Paddy Maher, U14 Prem Dylan Pinner, U14 Div 3 Nathan Shryan and U13 Div1 Johnny Vaughan.
