November 29th, 2007

ORMSKIRK LADIES 31 – 10 HEATON MOOR WRUFC

U9s Do Well At Widnes - 25th November

November 25th, 2007

We were very keen to do well in this away fixture as Widnes had narrowly beaten us twice in tournaments earlier this season. Pre-match discussions determined a format of 3 15-minute periods to give both sets of players plently of rugby. Widnes scored first then great defence from both sides meant that there was no […]

ORRELL ANVILS 11-5 ORMSKIRK (Half time 5-5)

Third XV Match Report – 17th November 2007
Ormskirk 29 V Hope Valley 12
Ormskirk keep well away from the Edge
On a cold dank day, Ormskirk came away with another ‘W’, although most purists would agree that it wasn’t the display of running Rugby that the mass crowd has come to expect from the Thirds. Indeed […]

Ormskirk U16 2nd XV 0 Pendle U16 10

November 21st, 2007

Burscough Priory Science College was the venue for Ormskirk’s home tie with Pendle U16s.

November 19th, 2007

Ormskirk U 15s 5 Leigh U15s 31
 
Ormskirk paid for a lack of organisation in the first half and - despite an improved second half performance - could not overturn the home team. Leigh played intelligently throughout the entire match, and used a strong cross field wind to pin Ormskirk in their own ‘22′ for […]

Aldwinians u14s 31pts - Ormskirk u14s 5pts
Travelling to the freezing wastes of Audenshaw with 5 of the first choice pack - and 8 players in total unavailable due to injury and sickness - was always going to be a tough challenge. The home side - bouyed on by some thumping victories and an enthusiastic crowd - […]

Under 13s cruise to win in Lancashire Junior Challenge.

November 19th, 2007

Ormskirk under 13s were very much looking forward to this Lancashire Cup encounter against Sefton, bolstered by the fact that for one of the first times this season they were nearly at full strength. Although just down the road in Liverpool, this was the first encounter between the two teams and so it was difficult to […]

All four senior mens’ teams played this weekend, but only the Third XV were in a ‘competitive’ fixture

After losing for the first time in a little over a month against a strong LSH outfit the previous weekend, skipper Ian Critchley was been looking for a much improved performance against Carrington, who belie their lowly status with an attitude few teams across the leagues could match. […]
