Kings Cross Steelers will face a huge derby clash for the Memorial Park bragging rights against East London on Friday evening.

The Steelers currently sit in seventh place in London Three Essex while their local rivals are third going into the clash.

And they will go into the match on the back of a 17-10 victory over Old Cooperians last weekend, with chairman Matt Webb saying: “Kings Cross faced Old Cooperians in their first ever game on Saturday.

“A spirited start by the Steelers following their victory at Canvey Island saw the game being played in Old Coops territory for most of the first half.

“Lots of opportunities led to a 12-0 lead at half time, despite two penalty kicks hitting the posts in blustery conditions, Judd couldn’t have done it if he tried!

“Steelers continued with a strong performance in the second half scoring a third try but a resurgent opposition wasn’t going to make it easy getting two of their own on the board before the whistle.”
