Keighley Albion’s Under-11s made history at a national event over the weekend.

At the prestigious Leeds Rhinos Challenge, held at Butlin's in Skegness, the team did not concede a single point, the first time that has ever happened in the tournament’s history.

It was a remarkable effort by the team and coaching staff, and a phenomenal achievement to score 112 points and concede zero.

The Rhinos Challenge is designed to bring amateur rugby league teams from across the country to compete against each other.

Albion’s U11s took a 16-strong squad to Skegness on Friday afternoon, with the games played over Saturday and Sunday.

Albion were drawn to face Oldham St Annes in their first fixture, which was a 2pm kick-off on the Saturday.

Oldham were a strong team, but they were met with some ferocious defense in the early exchanges from Albion, and the tries eventually began to come for Keighley as they won 16-0.

The second game was against league rivals Queensbury with Albion knowing just how good their Bradford neighbours are.

But the tone was set by the big forwards from Albion in a huge collision in the very first tackle of the game. In the end, Albion came away victorious from a fiercely competitive encounter with a 12-0 win.

Next up for the team was Beverley Braves, but an Albion side full of confidence swept their tricky East Yorkshire opponents aside 20-0.

Their final game on Saturday was against a dangerous West Hull outfit, one of the other best sides in the competition.

Both teams started quickly, throwing in some ferocious tackles, but it was Albion who finally broke the deadlock and they eventually came away with a 12-0 win.

Sunday morning brought Albion’s final two games.

First up were a Farnley Falcons side struggling with injuries from the day before, and Albion brushed aside their wounded opponents 28-0.

At this point with one final game to go, news was filtering among the crowds at the event that never in the history of the competition had a team played all six games and not conceded a single point.

The sixth and final game saw Albion take on Warringtons Rylands Sharks, with the chance to make history.

Albion, coming into the contest with the grit and determination not to concede a point, started the game in full flow.

A knock on from Rylands in their very first set gifted possession to Albion quickly and set the tone for the remainder of the contest.

Albion ran in try after try, finishing the game as 24-0 winners, making defensive history to celebrate.

Albion U11s squad for Leeds Rhinos Challenge: Otis Waite, Zack Coppen, Charlie Rollason, Clark Bolton, Kiyam Miah, Patrick Gaskin, Eli Condren, Tobias Finn, Cody Ackroyd, Oscar Napoli, Riley Bogle, Henry Dibbin, Thomas Jebb, George Simpson, Sidney Richardson and George Patterson.
