Hull FC will host the return leg of The Steve Prescott Cup staged in tribute to the late Steve Prescott MBE.
The first leg of the inaugural Steve Prescott Cup took place at Langtree Park, home of St Helens RFC in February, with the Merseyside club just edging out a narrow 34 – 22 victory in a pulsating battle.
The Cup will be an annual event played between both of Steve's former clubs with the team having the highest aggregate score in the two regular Super League matches winning the cup.
Therefore the clash on Friday 1st August will see one of the captains lifting the cup for the very first time.
Before the game, a tribute to the inspirational Prescott will be played on the large screens and his sons Taylor & Koby will be mascots. Steve's brother Neil will carry the matchball onto the KC Stadium pitch.
General Manager of the Steve Prescott foundation, Martin Blondel said "We would like to thank Hull FC & St Helens RFC for this magnificent gesture. Knowing the players like I do, I know how much it will mean to both sides, it will be a huge honour for either captain to lift the inaugural Steve Prescott Cup! This fixture will be a permanent reminder of the great man! The cup will make sure that Steve's legacy will continue and his name will live on forever."
