Under 12’s taste last minute defeat at Preston.

November 30th, 2006

The under 12’s travelled to Preston Grasshoppers with a weakened squad last weekend -though this gave the coaches an opportunity to cast an eye over a couple of new players to the team.

As always Preston fielded a massive team in terms of weight and height and they dwarfed the Ormskirk team in every position. […]

Ormskirk U13 14pts - Preston Grasshoppers U13 41pts
After a morale-boosting win at Fleetwood it was back to Green Lane for a rare home fixture against a big Preston side.

November 26th, 2006

Ormskirk First XV 25th Nov 2006
Ruskin Park 41-19 Ormskirk
It wasn’t so much a sucker punch, more of a devastating assault that left Ormskirk wondering how to get into a match that saw them trailing 19-0 inside the opening 10 minutes. With the St. Helen’s outfit Ruskin Park proving once again that if they get possession […]

U13s EFE Lancs Cup Success

November 20th, 2006

Fleetwood u13 7pts - Ormskirk u13 10pts
Its a long way to Fleetwood, but a nice journey back knowing you’ve won.
A delayed departure without the only two subs available was not the best start, and as the 15 players travelled to Fleetwood it was the coaches’ job to try and formulate the best line up. Thankfully […]

U13s Fall Short at Tyldesley

November 14th, 2006

Tyldesley u13  29-7  Ormskirk u13 
The U13s travelled to Tyldesley for a pool fixture in bouyant mood after a good win at Lymm a fortnight ago. However, after a bright start it all fell apart in a poor second half.

The opening half was end to end with big hits from both sides allied to some good […]

Ormskirk 11 Oswestry 17
Ormskirk were looking to emulate their success in the last league game with another win against newly promoted Oswestry. Unfortunately a lack of clinical finishing and spillages proved to be the first team’s undoing.

To describe Saturday’s weather as blustery would be an understatement and […]
