Royal London Club
Championship draw - 2019
Thursday 10th January 2019
The draw has been made for the Royal London Club Championship.
The Liverpool Competition has seventeen teams in this year's competition spread across three groups.
Last season's semi finalists, Northern, receive a bye in Group 5 and go on to entertain either Rainford or Southport and Birkdale at Moor Park in the second round.
Losing quarter finalists, Ormskirk, face Sefton Park at Brook Lane whilst long time challengers, Bootle, take on Ainsdale at Wadham Road.
If successful, Northern will be at home in the first four rounds at least whilst Ormskirk will be at home for three. Being in the same group, only one of the teams will be able to advance to last sixteen draw in July.
