Under 7s Away at Tarleton 25.2.07

February 25th, 2007

Previously, Ormskirk had started matches quietly, often being down in the first half then ending up victorious. Today however, the team came out all guns blazing and ready for action for this local Derby.
The first match was fast paced with fast forward movement and some slick passing by Ormskirk who also defended well with first time tagging […]

Under 7s: The story so far!

February 25th, 2007

The under 7s started this season with a very young and inexperienced squad (mostly year 1 children). None had played previously except for two 5yr olds. Their first few matches were lost despite valiant efforts from all payers. However the squad seemed to start to gell in December when playing at home to Manchester they won […]

4ths come close to defeating ‘dale

February 25th, 2007

24th February 2007
Rossendale 3rd XV 20 Ormskirk 4th XV 10
Ormskirk 4ths made the long journey to Rossendale a player short of a full complement. The Gingerbread Men therefore knew that they would be up against a solid outfit who had not only numerical advantage but home advantage also.

It was the home side who took […]

The 8s travelled to Waterloo on the 18th full of confidence and keen to get a first win of 2007 after draws against Widnes and Leigh. Alas it was not to be and we went down 8 - 5 although the spoils could have gone either way. The match was played with great enthusiasm […]

February 16th, 2007

Ormskirk u13s 7pts - Tarleton u13s 7pts
Earlier in the season Tarleton came to Green Lane in the Lancs Challenge Cup and went away worthy 15-0 winners. Maybe they came on Sunday expecting another straightforward victory.
