Cheshire Plate Final – Macclesfield Colts 39 – Lymm Colts 17

Macclesfield Senior Colts capped off their season with some silverware, beating Lymm in their own back yard 39-17, to win the Cheshire Plate competition. Macclesfield went into the game as underdogs  playing two leagues below their hosts, but after strong starts to both halves, they had built an unassailable five try lead. Competition for Man of the Match was fierce, scrum half Will Gregory edged it with his distribution and try assists. Lloyd Smith Coates scored two first half tries either side of George Hodkinson’s score. Dan Greer also got a brace in the second half, along with a Christian Taylor break away try and skipper Cameron McKay’s penalty conversion.

Man of the Match – Will Gregory

Lloyd opened the scoring on 7 minutes, after Will broke to the left from the base of a scrum, linking with Lloyd, who powered into the corner to score. George scored the next try, running a support line off Chris’ break, then sprinting clear of the cover to touchdown. Lloyd scored his second in the same manner as his first with another powerful run into the left hand corner. The Blues started the second half in the same way as the first, scoring on seven minutes. Moving the ball through the backs, Dan broke the defensive line on the Lymm twenty two, then accelerated away to score to the left of the posts. Chris’ try was a result of defensive line pressure on the Lymm backs. Lymm spilt the ball, Chris was first to it, then shrugged off a tug on his shirt, and sprinted to the line from just past halfway to score under the posts. Dan deceived the Lymm outside centre and winger with his second try, running tight to the left hand touchline, calling for the inside ball,  dummying the scissors with Ben Foster, then sliding over the line for the score.
