Plucky Colts stick at it

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

MACC COLTS ................. 19 ANSELMI­ANS ................ 57

THE Colts ex­pected a dif­fi­cult day at the of­fice, tak­ing on a full strength Anselmi­ans side with just 12 play­ers plus a loaned prop.

The score­line showed that the Saints made the ex­tra man tell, but the Blues didn’t drop their heads and kept com­ing back for more.

Cap­tain Tom Le­ices­ter was picked out as man of the match for his two tries and choos­ing the right op­tions in mid­field.

Aled Wil­liams opened the scor­ing for the Blues, pop­ping up at the right mo­ment to touch down after Joe Stubbs had crashed over the line.

Mike Green’s de­fence also caught the eye as he har­ried the op­po­si­tion at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity.

Ol­lie As­ton slot­ted the con­ver­sions for the Blues.
