Albion fall to heavy defeat


Latchford fell to a heavy defeat on a Saturday against an in form Halton side.

Despite missing Charlie McCurrie and Matty Rudd on international duty, coach Martyn Ellis still felt the squad was strong to enough to be competitive.

With the hosts having the advantage of a strong breeze at their backs on the first half, it allowed them to have plenty of possession in the Albion half. They took full advantage and caught Albion out twice in the opening ten minutes when they scored off last tackle plays to open up an early 12-0 lead.

Although the visitors got a foot hold in the game and stated to apply pressure upon Halton, they could not find a way through the home defence, and on the half hour mark the hosts crossed again to put them in full control at the break.

Any possible thoughts of a comeback were quickly extinguished with a converted try from Halton on 45 minutes.

Albion had to do it tough for the last 20 minutes with Ben Harper, Matt Nash, and Mike Walker suffering injuries in a tough afternoon for the visitors leaving them with only one interchange, but this was not to take away from the hosts who played some good rugby and fully deserved the victory.

Latchford have two free weekends to hopefully recover and regroup before they face the long trip to Heysham Atoms on Saturday 16 July.
