Blues Taught a Lesson by Fylde

Fylde visited Priory Park this weekend and left with maximum points. The visitors ran out 47-0 winners after making The Blues pay for every mistake they made.

Fylde scored a try on four minutes, and set the tone for the match, with a free flowing backs move, which saw Dorrington score in the corner.

Jordan Dorrington scored the second try of his hat trick on 16 minutes. A sublime cross kick from Johnson was taken expertly by Dorrington.

On 21 minutes, Fylde made it 21-0 through Gareth Rawlings. Yet more clinical play from Fylde who were making Macclesfield pay for every mistake they made.

With only a few minutes until half time, Flyde centre Chris Briers extended the lead, a superb run stepping in and out of the tackles and in under the posts, 0-28 at half time.

Fylde came out after the break and it was very much more of the same, a flowing backs move built from a Blues mistake was finished off in the corner by hat trick man Jordan Dorrington.

The Blues nearly immediately, but a penalty against and a yellow card saw Brennand scorch up to the other end to add to the scoreboard. Johnson converted, as he did on all but one occasion.

The final try was scored on 62 minutes through Warren Spragg and after this the game petered out, a disappointing afternoon for Macclesfield but a very impressive display from Fylde.
