RAIN DOESN’T DAMPEN KIRK’S DAY

March 31st, 2008

29.03.08 - WARRINGTON 5-24 ORMSKIRK
The English weather showed up in true style at Warrington this weekend but couldn’t prevent Ormskirk’s First XV from putting four tries past an enthusiastic and strong Warrington opposition.

Still playing with confidence, and in the knowledge that they are through to next week’s Lancashire Plate semi-final, the travelling Green Lane men […]

U9s home win against Blackburn

March 31st, 2008

Sunday 30th March marked our last home game of this season. Blackburn were the visitors and games between these 2 teams are usually very close - this was no exception. Ormskirk took an early lead with Tom James crashing over in the corner. After the break Blackburn pulled one back and it looked set to […]

Under 7s - Amazing at Altrincham 16.3.08

March 20th, 2008

With almost half the squad  having gone to bed very late the previous night, and with memories of the battering we took from them last time we met, we journeyed to Altrincham filled with a sense of dread – our guys need a good night’s kip to perform!!

Dodger had slept over at Persuader’s, who’s snoring […]

U14s Waltz Into Plate Final

March 20th, 2008

Warrington u14s 0pts – Ormskirk u14s 30*pts 
Ormskirk travelled to Warrington for this semi-final mindful of complacency. A victory earlier in the season over the same opponents could have proved a factor in affecting the way Ormskirk played – it didn’t and indeed the side continued their ruthless knockout form and destroyed a side whose game […]

First XV march into semi-final of Lancashire Trophy

March 17th, 2008

Lancashire Trophy
ORMSKIRK 25-21 BIRCHFIELD
(Half time 13-8)
A nail-biter of a quarter-final at Green Lane on Saturday saw a jubilant Ormskirk qualify for the semi-finals of the Lancashire Trophy. Birchfield, a strong, tough outfit, had knocked Ormskirk out of the previous season’s cup so it was with relish that Kirk entered into this fixture, eager to put […]

Incredible weekend for Ormskirk youngsters

March 17th, 2008

History was made at the weekend when all four Ormskirk minis/juniors teams made it through to their respective Lancashire Cup finals.
The strength and depth of the four squads proved too much for their semi-final opponents as the U13s, U14s, U15s and U16s all made it through to finals day at Manchester RUFC on Sunday […]

March 17th, 2008

With a comfortable victory over Leigh in their Lancashire Plate quarter final Ormskirk were looking to carry that form over to their semi-final against North Manchester side Sedgley Park. With midweek training going well at a cold and blustery Edge-Hill and with, finally, a full squad to pick from the coaches believed that a place […]

THE EVIL EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

March 10th, 2008

FLEETWOOD WRUFC 17 – 12 ORMSKIRK LADIES
Tom and Jerry, Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty, Adolf Hitler and the Jews – some people just can’t seem to hit it off. And so it is with Ormskirk Ladies and Fleetwood. Ever since Fleetwood played their first game against the Ladies there has been a certain edge to their […]

OMSKIRK 8-7 SEFTON (Half–time 0-7)
Second played third in the table at Green Lane this weekend when Ormskirk’s first team looked to narrow the gap on Sefton in this South Lancs and Cheshire League II fixture.

Under 14s win Plate Quarter Final

March 9th, 2008

Ormskirk u14s 37*pts - Broughton Park 7pts
Ormskirk kicked off this tie with the knowledge that if they played to their potential then they could well win. After a 29-17 victory over the visitors earlier in the season, hopes were high, but also wary of a Broughton Park team that had a decent set of forwards.

All […]

March 3rd, 2008

Ormskirk 4th XV 67 – 7 Colne and Nelson 2nd XV
Playing in blustery conditions that threatened to turn the game into a farce, Ormskirk produced some fine champagne rugby in the face of a strong wind in the first half to turn this game into a one sided affair despite the early setback of […]

Under 13s win plate quarter-final.

March 3rd, 2008

After the disapointment of going out of the Lancashire Cup the under 13s were keen to put up a good showing in the plate quarter final against old rivals Leigh. The coaches were forced into several changes to their starting line-up after several players were unavailable due to illness and disciplinary reasons. This gave the […]

First XV leave it late to grab the two points

March 2nd, 2008

First XV Match report – 01.03.08
Ashton on Mersey 14-15 Ormskirk
By the team’s own admission this wasn’t their best game of the season - however, Ormskirk’s First team have demonstrated the ability to play below par and still gain a victory. This was one of those occasions…..

Despite languishing at the lower end of the league […]
