HEMSWORTH RUFC will be playing Yorkshire Division Three rugby union next season after securing a long-awaited promotion at Moxon Fields on Saturday.

Carl Wroe’s men secured second spot in Yorkshire Division Four thanks to a four-try 26-0 victory over Wetherby that sparked wild celebrations at Lowfield Road.

Hemsworth held a three-point lead going into the final match of the season and victory over their mid-table opponents would have guaranteed promotion.

They did just that with ease to join champions Leeds Medics and Dentists as the sides promoted from Yorkshire Division Four this term.
