All the results from the weekend following games for the Blues and Ladies Teams
With no 1st XV game on Saturday the Blues took centre stage as they opened their league campaign. They travelled to Colne & Nelson to play their 2nd XV and they went with a decent squad.
An impressive performance followed with the Blues running out as comprehensive 54-10 winners with four tries in each half and a bag of conversions from Duncan Lambert.
Elsewhere Sedgley Park 4ths, Tarleton 3rds and Wigan 2nds all maintained their 100% start to the season with the latter scoring an impressive 91-0 win at home to Bury 2nds.
Sale Sharks Division Five North Results:
Colne & Nelson 2 10-54 Garstang Blues
Fleetwood 3 24-22 Preston GH 5
Kirkby Lonsdale 3 12-28 Sedgley Park 4
Tarleton 3 34-0 Orrell St James
Wigan 2 91-0 Bury 2
On Sunday the Ladies were back in action for the first time this season when they took on Workington Ladies at home. After a very difficult season last year the Ladies have re-grouped over the summer and their determination was rewarded with a promising performance. Despite eventually going down by 18-12 it was a good run out for the Ladies and something to build on for the season. Garstang’s points came through a try for Skipper Emma Gardner, one for Holly Jackson and a conversion by Cerys Ellis.
