Ramsey Record a fantastic home win to stretch their unbeaten record at The Mooragh!


Ramsey put bottom side Wallasey to the sword at Mooragh Park running out 72-3 winners and keeping their sixth place in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Two. Wallasey were no pushovers though and the opening half hour was a tough as any.

Ramsey got off the mark in the twelfth minute. Adam Yates raced clear down the sea side touchline. Craig long punched the ruck ball into the stand off channel and Nick McCudden was on hand to bag the try. Four minutes later, Wallasey failed to roll clear of a tackle and Fintan Cummins made it 8-0 with the penalty.

The next score was Wallasey’s. Ramsey conceded a penalty in front of goal and Wallasey stand off Matty Climo knocked it over to make it 8-3 on the half hour mark. From the restart however Adam Yates gathered the ball on the full. He was denied a spectacular score just a few yards short of the line however loosehead prop Andy Wilson was on hand to finish off the move with a try. Fintan Cummins converted and Ramsey were 15-3 in front.

As half time approached Wallasey were starting to show signs of tiring and Ramsey really began to profit down the left wing. Will Keenan made a breakthrough and Craig Long finished it off and shortly afterwards the lively Adam Yates went down the same channel and Keenan finished it off. With Fintan Cummins converting both, the half time score was 29-3.

Just four minutes into the second half it was try time again. Lance Wyllie and Andy Wilson went down the right flank and after exchanging a few passes, Wyllie rounded off the break with a try. Ben Harding converted to make the lead 36-3.

With no juice left in the Wallasey tank, the floodgates opened in the closing twenty minutes. Hooker Peter Verrall finished off a great team try. Beautiful hands from the backs worked an opening for Adam Yates down the left, Glyn Hooson-Owen flopped over from close range, Ben Harding darted in under the sticks and Tynan Pritchard got in on the action right at the end. Ben Harding added a four conversion for good measure.

Ramsey travel to Winnington Park next week for the semi final of the Cheshire Vase.
