Strug­gling Boro face dif­fi­cult derby

Rochdale Observer - - SCHOOL NEWS -

LIT­TLE­BOR­OUGH’S 1st XV make the short trip up the road to Old­ham this af­ter­noon for what looks on pa­per a tough derby clash in the ADM Pre­mier Di­vi­sion.

Old­ham head into the game sit­ting third in the di­vi­sion, while Boro are sec­ond from bot­tom.

How­ever, the vis­i­tors will be buoyed by the fact Ald­wini­ans – just one place above Boro in eighth – beat Old­ham last week­end, al­beit on home soil.

Still, Old­ham have en­joyed a good start to the sea­son and Boro will need all their ex­pe­ri­ence to count if they are to pick up a pos­i­tive re­sult on the road to­day.

The sec­ond are also away from home as they travel to Leigh sec­onds, while the third team are in ac­tion at Rake­wood as they en­ter­tain Vale of Lune thirds. All to­day’s game kick off at 2.15pm.

The Lit­tle­bor­ough Pink War­riors Ladies team are in ac­tion to­mor­row when they make the jour­ney to Garstang.

Among the ju­nior teams, the un­der 15s and 14s take on Rochdale at home while the un­der 9s are at Bolton and the un­der 13s take part in the Rochdale Fes­ti­val.
