After a good training session on Saturday the lads were in confident mood . Hindleys Coach informed me they only had 9 players so we agreed to match up as best we could and I asked for volunteers to play for the opposition both halves .
I had plenty of volunteers to choose from , thanks guys true sportsmanship . We remember them days when we used to turn up with 8 and 9 players it isn’t nice at all .
The game got off to a bright start and it wasn’t long till Danny Wilkins raced clear to score the first of Leylands Trys. The conversion was missed by Joe Weston
It wasn’t long until Leyland scored another 2 trys in quick succession Wilkins Bagging a second and Weston scoring one himself , Weston also added conversions for them both .
Hindley showed spirit and determination and a nice move out wide saw them score which they added the extras as well .
Wilkins raced clear from the restart to score again with weston adding the extras yet again .
Leylands structure was much better than in recent weeks and it laid the platform for Michael stack to score before half time , This time James O’neil added the extras for the warriors .
Half Time Score Hindley 6 v 28
A more organised display in the second half from the warriors saw them score further tries from Wilkins X 2 , Joe Kirkby X 3
Final score was 54 – 12 to Leyland warriors , great effort guys ..
Man of the match , Jake Morton , he never gave up was always supporting and his tackling was great
