Under14’s semi-final heartbreak

March 27th, 2009

Ormskirk came to the business end of the season in a confident mood and were looking to beat Rochdale after an easy win over them earlier in the season.
Rochdale kicked off and were soon deep in the Rochdale half and were soon awarded an attacking scrum. From this ‘Kirk drove forward but a misunderstanding […]

U15s in Plate Final

March 23rd, 2009

Ormskirk u15s  26pts - Warrington u15s  7pts
This was a repeat of last year’s semi-final, but that’s where any similarity finished. It was a great game with both sides giving their all, no quarter asked or given, but still played in a very sporting fashion. Warrington arrived with confidence and this season have made a number […]

Strong U10s display away @ Manchester

March 18th, 2009

Sunday 15th March was a re-arranged fixture away to Manchester. We fielded 2 evenly balanced  teams (just possible from a squad of 19) as did Manchester so the format was for both Ormskirk teams to play both Manchester teams in turn on adjacent pitches with the matches running simultaneously. Manchester are a very strong club […]

Under 14s Triumph against Leigh

March 18th, 2009

On a day when it seemed like Spring was just around the corner, the under 14s welcomed their old friends, Leigh, from just down the East Lancs Road. With four players away on District ‘duty’ this was a chance for players to impress the coaches prior to the big Lancashire Plate semi-final against Rochdale next week. With […]

U15s Breeze into the Semi’s

March 18th, 2009

Ormskirk u15  37*pts  -  Southport u15  7pts
Ormskirk had to travel to Waterloo Road, Southport for this home quarter final match due to the Southport side having to kick off earlier than had been planned. It didn’t make any difference as the “home” side had an enjoyable morning at the seaside in a very one-sided match. […]

Under 14s reach Lancashire Plate semi-final.

March 10th, 2009

This week the under 14s welcomed their old friends from the coast, Southport, in The Blackstick’s Blue Lancashire Plate 1/4 final. Ormskirk felt they had the edge after comprehensively beating them in an early season clash but it is to be remembered that Southport were a few men down on that day and would certainly prove […]

U15s Back to Winning Ways

March 10th, 2009

Ormskirk u15s  33pts - Altrincham u15s   26pts
Ormskirk came out of a dark period on Sunday, with a performance that was absolutely top class - they played some of the best rugby for the past two seasons as they built up a good lead, lost it and then won the game with a piece of magic.

The […]

Under 14s successful at Altrincham

March 2nd, 2009

With the Lancashire Plate quarter-final just a week away the Under 14s travelled down to sunny Cheshire hoping for a testing game against Altrincham Kersal.
