Macclesfield 13 V 46 Winnington Park
Park produced their best performance of the season to run out comfortable winners against Macclesfield.
A beautiful sunny day at Macc saw winnington produce their best performance of the year.A strong team,unusual for an away fixture,took the game to Macc from the start.The first encounters were close and suggested a tight contest.Macc kicked a penalty after 10 minutes to take a 3 - 0 lead.Park responded immediately from the re start with a break from the lively Warr resulting in a try under the posts from Staley.Try converted by Milly left the score 3 - 7.Park sensed that it was to be their day and took total control of the match.The scrum was dominant as well as the line out giving the backs plenty of ball to test the opposition.The pace and power from park was too much for macc and further tries were scored from Milly,Newcomer Jeff Millington,Warr,Jones and Luty. Macc scored a consolation before the break leaving the half time score Macc 8 v 36 Winnington Park.Several changes were made by both sides and Macc came back stronger at the start of the second half.Park defended well and then started to dominate the game.Further tries by Jones and Begg saw winnington extend their lead before Macc scored another consolation try.Final Score 13 - 46
An absolutely superb performance with newcomers Mark Warr and Jeff Millington excelling in the team.However it was a team performance with every man playing their part.
Rumour has it that "we are the champions" and have won the North West Veterans League.We didnt enter to win but if we have it is a great finale to a very successful first year of Vets rugby.
A couple of beers after and chance to catch up with some old friends made for a good day
