Bowdon thirds were flush with players a request to bring(21/22) extra numbers was agreed ( thought we might need to borrow some) We looked like being short but Bobby turned up, a new prop Brandon Delport, winger Kieron, Andy Patch returned as did Schoey senior, Mark Grayson and one of my ex Colts Liam Riley, Sam Makin and another youngster Abs Ahmed did well at full back, Ryan was Waynes MOM , but the managers award went to Jack Schoey and Brandon Higham a tenner each and £20 ffor Ryan , double bubble but worth it for a fine if losing performance. Travis Garner returned from injury and managed a good game injury free. Nine players U21 is a good omen for the future, none of Griffs Colts this week, they are preparing for tomorrows big game home to Tarleton 2pm k/o (try and make it).
We scored first with a Ryan penalty struck well equalised soon after.
Josh Sayle got a try from No 8 barging over from 20m but the try of the game for me was Brandons chase down the wing to touch down as the defensive cover was beaten to the ball. Liam had a fine game at 10 making some good breaks one had only the full back to beat, but one too many side steps meant he was pulled down by a good tackle. I cant not mention James Bower our new crash ball accountant ( nearly) second row and all round nuisance.
Thanks to all the supporters, it was a good atmosphere I think you could put a decent team out with them over the years, Mike Crebbin ( cpt) Andy Harrop and his bike, Avnish, Russell, Broomhead, Crickett, Jack Pietsch, Dave and Jeff plus Graham, Jon Lea, I recon John Sykes and Chris Ainsworth could play a bit too. There were others and thanks to you too.
Fresh horses for the men.
