A warm morning saw a large crowd watch a stuttering performance,as Ashton put together some good phases of play only to have the hard work undone.
20 players made the trip to Glossop and it was great to see Harry Hampton back playing so well and nearly scoring .
Ashton got off to a decent start setting up good possession only to lose the ball out wide, for Glossop to greatefully accept an early try.
The ship was tightened but the slightest leak seemed to be punished by the No 8. Parkinson powered over for a try Manwaring converting for 12-7. A try was gifted to Glossop before half time and the lads were flat.
Spirits were raised at half time and a better second half performance resulted and Ashton rang the changes getting all 20 lads a run out in the hot sunshine. Keir Mc Ginn scored two second half tries including a well worked penalty move.
Ashtons front row were working well and increasingly had Glossop on the back foot, lineouts were also going well.
Jae Manwaring was picked out as Man of the Match, with the front row as a unit putting in the best perfomance for some time.
Thanks to Ian for reffing ,motivating and allowing plenty of drinks breaks.
