Chester 3rd 24-24 Northwich 2nd

OLLIE Kenny, a promising colt gaining experience of playing senior rugby, scored a last-gasp try to earn Northwich seconds a deserved share of the spoils.

Scrum-half Richard Hart’s conversion attempt from the touchline, which would have secure for Blacks a notable victory against the North West Intermediate League Division Two South leaders, was narrowly off-target.

However the visitors still took plenty of encouragement from how they performed on their travels.

Tries from Hart, Tom Boardman and Tom Clark, plus two conversions from their goal-kicker, kept Northwich in contention with the home team throughout the contest.

Wirral 3rd 33-56 Winnington Park 2nd

WINNINGTON Park seconds were rewarded for their gradual improvement over recent weeks when they ran in 10 tries during an emphatic victory at Wirral’s thirds.

Mark Lee led the way with a hat-trick of scores while Jamie Pugh and Lee Allmark dotted down twice.

A list of players to cross the whitewash was completed by Ben Cann, Josh Gibbins and Jack Bond, while Ben Critchley was successful with three conversion attempts.

“Our ball-handling, tackling in defence and decision-making has got better recently,” said team manager Sean Magee.

They climb from the Division Two South table’s bottom two as a reward.

Bowdon 3rd 42-19 Winnington Park 3rd

CAPTAIN Dan Millington has urged his side to continue working hard following a promising first-half display away to Bowdon’s thirds.

The visitors were a match for their hosts in a Division Four South fixture before the break which they reached 17-12 adrift.

However the home team were able to use substitutes to freshen up their side in the second period and that made the difference.

“We’ve got to keep at it and a win will come,” said Millington.

“The young lads we have are giving us good options in attack while the older heads are proving their worth in defence.”

Charlie Dexter, Ben Colyer and George Billington scored the tries for Winnington at the weekend.
