The U16's entertained Barrow Island on Sunday afternoon and despite the score this was a closely fought contest ....
There was nothing in it in the first quarter with both teams matching each other up front and it was going to be the errors that proved costly for Chorley.
Island scored twice in the first half to take a 12 nil lead at the break. It was much the same story in the second half and although the home side enjoyed more possession they couldn't capitalise against a strong defence.
Neal Wareing impressed for Chorley as did skipper harry bowers who climbed out of his sick bed to play today. The pick of the backs was Paddy Loughlin but the Man of the Match Award went to second row Terence Markham who caused all kinds of problems for Barrow both in attack and defence.
This was another first class effort from the U16's who again took to the field with just 13 players and again they wore their shirts with pride and put in a great performance. Training on Tuesday and then a well earned rest before pre-season training starts in January.
