Helsby U11s vs Northwich U11s
Team debuts for Alfie & Ben
After several weeks of cancelled games due to snow, ice and flooded pitches the Northwich U11s were keen to get back to playing rugby. Having made the short journey to Helsby, they received a warm welcome from the home team and re-kindled old friendships with familiar faces.
The home team ran hard and direct at the visitors placing a premium on effective tackling. The Black & Gold's responded with sending the ball out wide to score a flurry of tries to draw the score level. However with the tackling count in favour of the home team, Helsby edged ahead to secure the win.
Special mention has to be made of Ben & Alfie who played their first competitive game for Northwich and will undoubtedly with time be valuable additions to the team. Thanks must also be made to Helsby whom played with excellent spirit and were fantastic hosts.
