Taken from the minutes of the last NWC 13 - 15's meeting.

The floor was informed that the League had received just one piece

of correspondence and it was a nice change to hear one team

complimenting another for their sporting behaviour.

The praise came from Ian Darbyshire the Wigan St Judes U13s

Manager and related to their recent game with Orrell St James


Ian wrote

"I would like to recognise the sportsmanship showed to us by Orrell

St James.

During our game yesterday our right Winger was tackled close to

the side line in front of the Orrell St James coaches; the Referee

called him in touch, however, the Coaches corrected him saying he

had not stepped into touch. The Referee corrected his decision on

receiving this clarification and gave us the play the ball.

Two plays later we scored to make it 12-0.

They (the Orrell St James' Coaches) did not need to say anything

but I would like to commend their honesty".

Sporting behaviour many could do with replicating!
