Under 7s Victorious at Vale 24.2.08

February 29th, 2008

Setting off up the motorway in torrential rain, we wondered once again if we were mad to be doing this? 
Amazingly the skies were dry at the Vale of Lune, however the mud was as sticky as we had been warned (needless to say the team loved it!). The early night had made a huge difference […]

Sunday 24th February 2008
Fleetwood                    12
Ormskirk Ladies           22
Tries: A O’Malley, L Walker (2), J Leitch
Conversions: J Leitch
Close league rivals Ormskirk and Fleetwood met this week in the Lancashire 12-a-side Cup semi-final.  Ormskirk were without their regular centre partnership Louise Robinson and captain Emma Gander – so out stepped last week’s flankers Kate Traynor and Kayleigh McDonnell […]

U-11s Win again: Vale of Lune 12 - Ormskirk 19

February 29th, 2008

Following the recent 49-5 win agianst Tarleton and a resounding 87-12 victory against Hoylake, Ormskirk U11s made the rainy trip to Lancaster looking to make it 3 in a row.

Despite the weather encountered on the journey, it was taken as a positive omen by the travelling supporters that the spring sunshine had broken though by […]

Under 13s win at home.

February 27th, 2008

Last weekend saw the under 13s play Collegiate at home as the sole guests of ORUFC mini/junior section. As an added bonus the lads played on the bigger 1st team pitch although there was some disappointment that the opposition turned up 3 players short so we had to ‘loan’ players to ensure a full […]

U14s finish 4th at Lancs u14 10s Festival

February 27th, 2008

The Lancashire U14s Development 10s Festival is held every year with all teams from across the county invited. The one stipulation being the non-inclusion of County Development or County Squad players. Sadly this resulted in only 7 clubs entering this year (Aldwinians withdrawing due to illness and injury).

Ormskirk u14s travelled without their 4 county development squad […]

U9s @ Vale - 24th February

February 27th, 2008

We made the trip to Vale expecting just to play them but got a pleasant surprise as Widnes were there too to make it a triangle. A format of three 30 minute games was decided upon so as to make the long journeys wortwhile.

First up was Ormskirk v Vale a fiercely contested battle on a […]

Lava Lamps Ladies……

February 22nd, 2008

Darlington 17 Ormskirk 7
On the way back from Darlington the bus driver put on a video. It was “Volcano !”, a disaster movie in every sense. In it Tommy Lee Jones attempts to stop a lava flow which wells up in the centre of Los Angeles and save the lives of his daughter and […]

Surprise double fixture for Under 7s at home 17.2.08

February 20th, 2008

Yet another splendid morning at Green Lane saw the Under 7s play against not one, but two teams, with great success all round.

Formby Vikings had not arrived by kick off time. Luckily, Hoylake Under 8s had brought almost enough Under 7s players to put a team together and offered to play in their place. We […]

Tough time at home against Tarleton for Under 7s - 10.2.08

February 20th, 2008

With a full squad, on a glorious spring morning, the Under 7s were hoping to notch up yet another victory against local side Tarleton. Alas this was not to be. From the start, a vastly improved Tarleton were on the ball and at times left us standing. Ormskirk players seemed half asleep and just did […]

2nd XV win ‘ugly’ at Bolton

February 18th, 2008

2nd XV Match Report – 16.02.08
Bolton 7 Ormskirk 8
With Ormskirk’s 2nd XV now closing in on promotion, early season flair and panache has, on occasions, made way for some good old-fashioned grit and determination as they strive to hold on to second place in the league.

Yesterday’s encounter at Bolton was a case in point, […]

Convincing win for the First XV

February 17th, 2008

First XV Match report – 16.02.08
Ormskirk 31 Liverpool Collegiate 12
After two drawn games on the road in recent weeks, Ormskirk finally returned to winning ways at home in front of a large crowd basking in the spring sunshine. On a day that saw the famous Green Lane clubhouse receiving a lick of (very appropriate) Kirk […]

U11s 10-02-08 - Ormskirk 49 Tarleton 5

February 17th, 2008

In weather conditions perfect for Rugby, Ormskirk U11’s took the opportunity
to put in a display of Rugby that was almost text book. The fact that it was
a derby game against local rivals Tarleton added an even more positive slant
to the result.

From the start, the Ormskirk pack were into everything which ensured that
everything that Tarleton attempted […]

Honours-Even @ Wallasey

February 11th, 2008

First XV match report – 09.02.08
It seems unlikely but Ormskirk’s First team recorded their second draw in as many weeks when a tense battle against Wallasey ended honours-evens on Saturday. In the closest battle this season Kirk kept hold of the lead until the dying minutes, but a conversion kick from the touch […]

Excellent performance from under 13s

February 11th, 2008

After last week’s disappointing defeat by Aldwinians in The Lancashire Cup the under 13s could not have faced a tougher fixture than Sandbach who recently defeated the same team by over 50 points! However the coaches were in a bullish mood believing that the lads in the squad could give a good account of themselves if […]

Under 13s defeat Lymm

February 8th, 2008

Prior to their big cup match last weekend, the under 13’s took on old rivals Lymm in what looked to be, on paper, a very difficult match.In the last two encounters it is true to say we were given a lesson in rugby with heavy defeats of 35-0 and 49-7. To compound matters a few […]
