October 31st, 2007

Sunday 28th October 2007
Ormskirk Ladies           0
Darlington                  21
Ormskirk Ladies are quite glad that match reporter Sam Botfield was not present to witness the game after the night before, because he would have written something nasty - I’ll try to be nice………

The girls were unsurprisingly a little worse for wear early Sunday afternoon, after a few small […]

3rd XV Win Yet Again

October 29th, 2007

Widnes 3rds 17 - Ormskirk 3rds 46
27th October 2007
Ormskirk 3rds travelled to Widnes on the back of three straight league wins, and after a particularly strong performance against Wigan the previous week, were hopeful of another good win. The win they got, the performance on the other hand was less to shout about.

Ormskirk […]

October 29th, 2007

Ormskirk u14 29pts - Broughton Park u14 17pts
Ormskirk won this game without playing particualrly well, but still had too much for a spirited team from Broughton Park
Indeed the visitors came to Green Lane in confident mood with 5 wins and no defeats under their belt. This was the first time the two teams had ever […]

Presentation Evening

October 29th, 2007

Thank you to everyone who helped make last Saturday’s Presenation Evening a huge success.
We had representation from all sections and teams within the Club. The marquee and the food seemed to go down really well, and Nick Jacobs and his band were great. All in all, a great atmosphere.
Feedback would be appreciated - […]

Under 13s Claim Draw at Broughton Park.

October 29th, 2007

Not so long after a tight victory against Broughton Park earlier in the season the Under 13s made the long drive to South Manchester to play them at their ground. As the match kicked off Ormskirk soon took early control with the forwards in excellent form controlling all phases of the game.

As usual Craig […]

Crewe Cut Down At Green Lane

October 28th, 2007

Ormskirk 17-10 Crewe (Half time 17-0)
A first half of immense attacking rugby and a second of brutal defence saw Ormskirk win against a strong Crewe team at Green Lane on Saturday. On the day that hosted the annual club presentation awards the crowd was treated to a nail biting game […]

Under 13s go down fighting.

October 28th, 2007

Another amended and late arranged fixture provided the under 13’s with the opportunity to trek across to Manchester to play Aldwinians. Due to the half term break and injuries, Ormskirk travelled without ten of what is now a sizeable squad.

It was clear from the outset that Aldwinians would be a stern test for the lads. […]

Mini and Juniors Halloween Party

October 28th, 2007

Friday saw a great night for all the families who took part in the Halloween Party at the Club.
The Disco/Karaoke went down a storm with many “entertainers” from both the Adults and the Kids taking part.
Special mention must be made about Lou Rees who with Phil Feeney should take part in the X factor, and […]

ORUFC Under 7s v Tarleton - Home - 21.10.07
The under 7s made a great start to their 07/08 season when playing at home to Tarleton. We would like to say a huge thank you to Tarleton who agreed to a last minute fixture. 
We lost half our squad at the end of last season to the […]

Oswestry 13-25 Ormskirk (Half-time 3-13)
Ormskirk travelled to the English/Welsh border to play Oswestry for last weekend’s league fixture. The team arrived in good spirits and put on a fine display of running rugby and - more importantly - came home with a convincing win. Having been knocked out of […]

Ladies Tame The Lions

October 21st, 2007

Turning over last season’s third placed team in North 2 26 – 5 on their own patch should have been a cause for celebration for the newly promoted Ormskirk Ladies. But it wasn’t. Despite the comfortable margin the game finished with a sense […]

Under 13s Secure Impressive Away Win.

October 21st, 2007

Due to an amended fixture the under 13s found themselves travelling down the East Lancs on Sunday to play the usually well drilled and organised Leigh team. After two close games with Leigh last season, Ormskirk’s coaches were looking at this game as a guage to see how the team were progressing. Although a couple […]


October 14th, 2007

Ruskin Park 19-8 Ormskirk (Half time 14-3)
Two break away tries and a strong defence halted Ormskirk’s ambition of progress in the cup competition for this season. The fact that it was to local rivals, St Helen’s Ruskin Park, didn’t make the result any easier to swallow. However, a superb performance against a team a division […]

Southport u14s 8pts - Ormskirk u14s 38* pts
In their second Lancs Junior Challenge match, Ormskirk continued their improvement this season by taking apart a spirited Southport side in a second half display of counter attacking 15-man rugby.

The game started with Ormskirk scoring two good tries from Gavin Griffiths and a first of the season from […]

Under 13s Win Tight Match.

October 7th, 2007

With Littleborough crying off from this week’s Lancashire Cup game it allowed a friendly fixture to be played against Broughton Park who were eager to wipe out the memory of their defeat to Ormskirk in last season’s Lancashire Cup semi-final. With Ormskirk having a large squad including several newcomers Broughton Park’s coaches graciously agreed to […]

U9s @ Littleborough Tournament

October 7th, 2007

Unfortunately our pool was reduced to 3 teams by the abscence of Huddersfield but we started brightly enough with a solid 2 - 1 victory over Rochdale followed by a 0 - 3 loss to an in-form Widnes team. Runner up in the pool gave us a semi final against Manchester who beat us 0 - 3 […]
