Sat 19 Jan 14:15 - Northern Division - Lancs/Cheshire Division 1 Full time

Tarleton 1XV 29 - AK 1XV 24

securing the first victory over AK this season

Altrincham Kersal travelled to Tarleton for the latest match in the Lancs/Cheshire 1 league.

The visitors found themselves 7-0 down quite early on in the match and never really got going in the first half at all making the half time score 12-0.

The second half was a different story and Altrincham Kersal put in some determined effort to score almost from the whistle making the score 12-5.
Tarleton responded to set the score at 17-5 to which the visitors responded closing the gap to 17-12 and the game very much still in the balance.
the two teams then traded tries and with seconds to go Altrincham Kersal were leading 22-24. Tarleton were then awarded a try with zero time left to leave a final score of 29-24.

All credit to the home side who played the game with great determination against the League leaders and freely admitted that this was "Their Cup Final".

Altrincham Kersal are still in top spot in the League having picked up two bonus points despite their loss and have a break next week before hosting Bolton on the 9th February.
