WATH Brow Hornets A-team made their final trip to Barrow for the season as they visited Walney who still have ambitions of retaining the CML Title.

The side for the first time this season was blessed with having lots of players available, mainly due to the fact the lads from our under 16s squad have all started to move into the open age. We had spoken to Walney who kindly agreed that we could play all our lads and on the day. Twenty players turned up, eight of the under 16 with Sam Cruden and Cameron Harris making their open age debuts. James Toman the senior guy on the field guided the team around the pitch and was a strong role model to for the younger lads. Scott Goodwin was another credit to the Brow as he continued his rich vein of form with his direct style of play. The Brow started the brighter of the two sides putting Walney under pressure for the first 10 minutes. Despite the pressure Walney scored first and before the Brow knew it they were 18-0 down after 30 minutes. The Brow were not disheartened and scored their first try through Jack Meagan who took a well timed look pass from Curtis Teare. Curtis was also instrumental in Meagan’s second try with an inch-perfect kick to the corner and Meagan won the foot race to the ball and Teare added the extras leaving the Brow trialling 18-10 at half time.

In the second half our young A-Team started to gain in confidence and despite conceding a few tries, took the fight to Walney with the two Pritchard twins showing strength above their age, and Owen McCartney controlling the game for the game at Hooker. The team were rewarded for their hard work after 65 minutes when prop Brad White scored his first try of the season as he collected an offload from Goodwin and then stretched over the line under the posts and once again Teare took the conversion making the final score 34-16. With four games left of the season hopes are high that we can build on that performance and finish strong so that we can build for the future.

Wath Brow Hornets A: C Teare, Jack Meagan, Connor Molyneux, Luke Davison, Aidan Dawson, James Toman, Tom Hannah, Owen McCartney, Aidan Coulthard, David Bradley, Jack Casey, Scott Goodwin, Reece Pritchard, Clark Riley, Adam McGrady, Lewis Pritchard, Sam Cruden, Damon Riley, Cameron Harris.
