Swinton Lions beat relegation rivals Workington Town

Swinton Lions all-but condemned Workington Town to League 1 next season with a 19-12 Kingstone Press Championship Shield victory over their relegation rivals.

Swinton's win leaves Workington and neighbours Whitehaven six points adrift and needing a miraculous end to the season to avoid going down.

First-half tries from Stuart Littler, Liam Marshall and Chris Atkin - who also kicked three goals and a drop goal - look to have secured Championship rugby for Swinton next season, while Marc Shackley and Jason Mossop crossed for the visitors.
