May 1st, 2008

After the euphoria of last weekend’s historic Lancashire Plate win it was back to earth this week for the visit of our new friends from Cheshire, Sandbach R.U.F.C..

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 day of reckoning finally arrived with this last group game of the Lancashire Cup with both Ormskirk and Aldwinians needing to win to progress to the quarter final stage.
