LEIGH EAST are looking good for the future.

Both their U18s and U16s teams have reached the BARLA National Youth Cup finals.

The U18s face West Hull at Dewsbury on Sunday while the U16s meet Milford (Leeds).

Victory at 20-18 against Crosfields was an exciting affair for the U18s, East forging ahead with tries from David Radley and Mickey Redford, both goaled by Radley.

The Warrington side fought back but East went further ahead with a Jason Carson TD, Radley again on target with a conversion and crucial penalty.

Radley was named MoM with Barry Greenwood and Paul Wilcox also star performers.
