Hindley could only muster 11 fit bodies for this game and it had been agreed by the Golborne coaches that they would only field the same amount of players at any one time, however unsportingly Golborne thought it would be better to put out the full compliment of 13(+ a full compliment of 6 subs)despite appeals from Hindley to make a contest of it.
Early in the game Hindley struggled to contain the golborne side out wide and the 2 extra players made all of the difference and Hindley found themselves 4 tries down within 15 minutes,Hindley decided there and then that would prove what a great bunch of players they are and soon started to pile the pressure on the Golborne line , they were rewarded when Jordan Parkinson scored a super try when he left the defenders for dead to score out wide, Hindley had other chances but were held just short a few times .
Half time Hindley 4-24 Golborne,
Hindley came out for the second half full of determination and pride and at times they looked like a team who were top of the 2nd division not Golborne , Jordan Cain put Hindey within 8 points of Golborne when he scored 2 fine individual tries , James Rimmer
The final score did not reflect the effort the lads put in and if they can reproduce the effort when they have players back then they will be challenging for promotion at the end of the season.
This was in my opinion the best Hindley have played this season, the tackling was ferocious , the passing was sublime and discipline was first class , Well done Lads we're all really proud of you.you would have won if the playing field had been level
1 Jordan 'Parky' Parkinson
was a handful for Golborne everytime he got the ball, tackled superbly and scored a great try.
2 Pip Unsworth
had his best game for Hindley , was unlucky not to be on the score sheet when he was held up twice, put in some big tackles.
- scored two great tries, made yards everytime he got the ball and put in some bone shaking tackles which left the opposition shell shocked.
another player who had his best game of the season , tackled superbly and ran strongly throughout.
5. Daniel 'Bulb' Anderton
- Defended superbly and ran the ball back strongly.
Captain fantastic, led by example , had his best game of the season, he is looking very comforatble at stand off, good hands
7. Rob Spurr
really starting to look the part at scrum half, led the team around the park, his passing was superb and he tackled his heart out
8 Ryan 'Tank' Fowler
must be the fastest strongest prop at this age group ,never took a backward step and helped the team gain valuable yards when needed.
9 George Sykes
- great to see George back, played at Hooker for the first time and had a brilliant game , his passing was very crisp and tackled strongly
10 Joe 'Simmy' Simm
had his best game in a hindley shirt , he has started to run straight and hard and made good ground , tackled brilliantly
13 Joe Lorimer
