Tough to take...
Ashton's juniors showed real improvement but lost out to a clinical Leigh at Banky Lane.
AOM 0 (0) -V- (8) 11 Leigh
The scoreline did not do justice to the hard work done by the Boys' in this match. Leigh moved the ball well and scored regularly down the flanks, but Ashton more than matched their visitors for large parts of this contest. Michael nearly scored with a line break and how the boys did not touch down in the third quarter after a great phase of play is a mystery. In fact, Ashton were the better team in the this period, which ended in parity.
