WINNINGTON Park’s players stuck to a game-plan and were rewarded with a second successive win.

Head coach Matt Farr said work done in training is paying dividend during the early stages of a new season.

“The guys have been practicing hard and that’s been reflected in their performances,” he said.

“We can still improve, but the past two games have seen us produce high-quality rugby.”

A sterner test awaits at Dukinfield on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.

Cameron Flanagan’s penalty cancelled out an early three-pointer for the visitors to Burrows Hill last weekend, only for Congleton to touch down the first try.

It did not deter Park, and Ryan Williams charged to the line to notch the first of six tries for the home team.

They took the lead shortly before the break, this time when back-row forward Alex Glendinning claimed a trademark score after driving through a number of attempted tackles.

And he crossed the whitewash for a second time early in the second period, a try improved by Flanagan’s conversion, to establish a 20-8 advantage.

With his side in control, Farr sent on Andy Evans and James Johnson from the sidelines.

However it was another replacement, Matthew Treacy, that scored next to continue a promising start to the campaign.

Flanagan again converted.

Less than five minutes passed before Evans went over, and Winnington completed their scoring when Flanagan added the extras to Lee Allmark’s try.

“Congleton’s pack was strong, but we kept our discipline and stuck to what we planned before the game,” added Farr.
