Blood, sweat....but no need for tears.
The scoreline did not do justice to the effort and energy shown by Ashton in this frustrating contest against Tyldesley.
AOM 0 (0) -v- (5) 10 Tyldesley
Despite losing their last two matches by the same margin, this was a vastly improved performance from the under 13's. Ashton's numbers were depleted and the visitors sportingly agreed to play 11 on 11. Tyldesley were able to exploit the extra space on a large pitch better, passing the ball slickly to the wings and scoring many tries from distance. However, for large parts of the game Ashton took the game to their opponents and whilst territory was hard to come by, the Boys had plenty of possession. Every member of the team can hold their head up high. If the Lads show the same spirit and determination in the matches to come they will undoubtedly start to score tries again.
