Roberts broth­ers make it fam­ily af­fair

Rochdale Observer - - TIME-TRIP -

SATUR­DAY marked a spe­cial day for the Roberts fam­ily at Lit­tle­bor­ough RUFC as three sib­lings fea­tured in the se­nior team’s start­ing line-up for the first time.

An­drew, Chris and Ge­orge Roberts all started the match against Fleet­wood, play­ing their part in a con­vinc­ing win. Field­ing three broth­ers was a first for the club as well. An­drew has fea­tured for the first team reg­u­larly but now his Se­nior Colts broth­ers, Chris and Ge­orge, are in the reck­on­ing, much to the de­light of mum Ali­son.

Lit­tle­bor­ough 1st XV travel to Keswick today (meet Rake­wood for coach de­par­ture at 10.30am).

The sec­onds en­ter­tain Thorn­ton Cleve­leys while the third team are also at home, they take on Heaton Moor. Both sides meet Rake­wood 1.30pm.
