Last weekend saw all four of our senior sides in action on home soil, the Alliance with a fine win over Leyland whilst the women’s team suffered a heavy loss to Featherstone Rovers. Our under-18s continued their recent good form with a 38-24 win over Portico, having trailed 18-4 at the break. Jamie King, Joe Lorrimer and Adam Smith each scored braces with Adam Ashurst bagging the other try and Zak Fagan with the goals.
Chris Snape’s Alliance battled hard to overcome Leyland Warriors 39-10, the visitors proving game opposition for long spells before succumbing. Ryan Monaghan’s two tries helped earn him man of the match with further scores from Joe Harrison, David Woods, Sam Shepherd (also with five goals), Charles Tyson and player-assistant coach Dale Allred. Martin Lewis landed the drop-goal.
On Saturday the Alliance launch proceedings at Twist Lane with a North West Trophy semi-final against derby rivals Golborne Parkside, the only team to prevent them winning thus far this season.
