Dewsbury Celtic finished their National Conference League Division Three campaign with victory, though there were narrow defeats for Thornhill Trojans and Shaw Cross Sharks.

Celtic were 30-10 winners against Gateshead Storm, which means they finish the season in seventh, following 12 wins and 10 defeats from their 22 league fixtures.

In Division One, already-crowned champions Thornhill suffered a single-point defeat at home to Oulton Raiders.

George Woodcock scored two tries while Martyn Holland also crossed the line. Casey Johnson kicked two conversions in a 16-17 loss.

Holland and team-mate Anthony Harris were sin-binned for the Trojans, while Brad Llewellyn was dismissed just shy of the hour for punching.

There was heartbreak for Shaw Cross, too, who conceded a late try and lost out 24-26 to Ince Rose Bridge.

Try scorers for the Sharks were Andrew Tillotson, Ricky Whiteman, Dec Naughton and Michael Quinn, while Paul March kicked four conversions.
