WINNINGTON Park’s search for their first victory of the new season goes on.

For some time, it looked like Saturday’s trip to Burnage might provide that very moment, especially when Trystan Vickery marked his debut with a try to put them 19-17 ahead 10 minutes into the second half.

However, that proved to be as good as it got for Park as the hosts scored four unanswered tries to run out 45-19 winners.

Burnage started brightly, scoring their first try after just three minutes before a penalty shortly afterwards had them 10-0 ahead.

After losing debutant Richard Hart to a broken foot, a brace of Benny Elliot penalties dragged Park back to within four points before the hosts scored their second converted try to make their lead more convincing.

Then, however, Park started to fight back – strong runs from Jake Cornwell and Tom King following a lineout set up Charlie Hyde to sprint nearly the length of the field to touch down in the corner.

Elliot kicked another penalty just before half time to cut the gap to three points before Vickery latched onto a kick from James Weeks to muscle over the line and put the visitors ahead for the first time.

Unfortunately, though, that only served to wake Burnage up and they put together a strong second half to take the game away from Park.

They must now pick themselves up for a return to Burrows Hill on Saturday to face Kirkby Lonsdale, kick off 3pm.

Winnington Park: Charlie Hyde, Dan Davenport, James Woods, James Weeks, Tom Merrick, Benny Elliot, Richard Hart, Tom King, Mike Gough, Ross Morrin, Jake Cornwell, Matt Treacy, Liam Gough, Luke Westgate, Dan Williams, Sam Blears, Jordan France, Trystan Vickery
