2XV impress with opening victory at Winnington Park
Spirits riding high as 2's start season where they left off
Winnington Park 2s 24-39 Altrincham Kersal 2s
In the opening game of the season, there were players who made some good impressions coming into the side, on what were warm conditions to play in at Winnington. The team grew into the game and gelled more as the game went on.
The new back row of combination of Seb Ellis, Jack Spiers and Aaron Loftus being ever-present across the pitch proved key in securing pressure and field position, setting platforms for attacking play from both forwards and backs. The introduction of Pete O’Connor and Mike Jones coming off the bench provided a welcome and effective impact, upping momentum and physicality as the side adapted to the opposition going to uncontested scrums.
Jack Snoddy started the season in try scoring fashion, making some fantastic half-pitch runs side-stepping around countless Winnington Park defenders to work his way to an eventual hat-trick.
The team came off in good spirits looking forward to their first home fixture of the season next weekend vs Chester, hoping to continue winning ways.
