Ald­wini­ans on re­ceiv­ing end of Boro blitz

Middleton Guardian - - LEISURE - AARON JONES

BOOSTED by the re­turn of a num­ber of play­ers, Lit­tle­bor­ough Un­der 11s thrashed Ald­wini­ans 13-6 at Au­den­shaw Park.

Five from Daniel Tay­lor, a hat-trick for Max Rawl­in­son and other tries from Ti­mon Warby, Cal­lum Shar­rocks, Lexi Hart­ley, Billy East­wood along­side a full length score from El­lis John­son brought about a very fruit­ful Sun­day af­ter­noon for the vis­i­tors.

The Un­der 9s took on Ald­wini­ans in what was only their sec­ond game at tack­ling and it looked like they have been do­ing it for years!

Boro’s 11 play­ers made up two small sided teams with the help of Ald­wini­ans who lent a player to make six on each side.

Team gold coach Adam Brace­gir­dle was so proud of his team as a barn­storm­ing run up the mid­dle from Lewis Brace­gir­dle cre­ated space for Cody Bush, Lewis Wales and Ol­lie Fletcher to all get on the score sheet. A spe­cial men­tion this week goes to man of the match Aden Kol­buck for his daz­zling side step and tire­less ef­forts in de­fence.

There was an­other fine dis­play from the greens, coached by Neil Makin­son. They put Ald­wini­ans on the back foot in both in at­tack and de­fence on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions. The stand out per­for­mance that saw Jack Ash­worth cover ev­ery blade of grass earnt him man of the match.

While spe­cial men­tions also go out to Al­fie McLough­lin and Noah Caulfield both scor­ing their first tries for the club and Harry Twed­dle for his nifty foot work and turn of pace.

Lit­tle­bor­ough’s un­der 13s were put to the sword by Water­loo in group A of the cup com­pe­ti­tion. Frus­trated for the most part, the boys strug­gled to find their rhythm and ex­tra qual­ity against a clever rugby team, los­ing 45-10.
