Under 10`s match report – 12th Jan Winnington Park (Home)

The early frost cleared leaving the Derby Fields in remarkably good condition for the Macc fixture against visitors Winnington Park returning after their visit just before Christmas. Both clubs have excellent numbers in their U10 age groups and three squads from each club played 2 matches each on a busy morning’s rugby.

Macc continued their excellent recent run of results, almost repeating their perfect 6/6 against Manchester last week, losing just one of 6 matches and that by a single score. Like last week, Macc’s tries came from across the group with 13 different players touching down.

Winnington Park gave Macc a proper test across all the matches and the scoreline against them was harsh given the effort their players put in right to the end. The difference to the last visit to Macc, when Winnington edged the matches 4-2, was mainly in the Macc defence and work at the ruck as they made Winnington work very hard to keep the ball and starved them of any dangerous forward momentum. The result of this defensive pressure was that the Sharks and Tigers allowed just a single try against them in their 4 matches. With the ball, Macc played with some good width at times, especially in the Sharks squad, getting somewhere near to where the coaches want them to be in terms of attacking organisation.

Results and scorers by squad:

Sharks

Macc 8 Winnington 0 : Will M (3), Chris H, Billy (2), Olly, Aaron

Macc 4 Winnington 0 : Will P, Olly, Billy, Chris

Tigers

Macc 2 Winnington 1 :  Ben (2)

Lions

Macc 3 Winnington 4 : Charlie O, Angus, Ian B

Macc 4 Winnington 3 :  Charlie O, Alistair, Charlie S (2)

Player of the week : Charlie S for some good tackling, running in attack and try scoring in the Lion’s win.
