For all those who were not witness to Sunday’s epic Lancashire U18 Senior Colts Trophy Semi Final, Eccles beat Ormskirk 30-29 in a very close contest, decided by a 35m penalty to seize victory in the last minute of play. (match report and photos posted here) Eccles will now face Makos (Manchester and Stockport combined) in the Lancashire Colts U18 Trophy Final on Sunday 14th April, to be played at Widnes RUFC, KO 2pm.
Friday 22nd March, our U18 Senior Colts squad will attend the 2018/19 Colts League Presentation Evening at Bowdon RUFC, to receive their ‘Senior D’ League Championship Trophy and Winners Medals.
Sunday 24th March, our U18 Senior Colts will face Preston Grasshoppers in the Colts League Senior Plate, KO 2pm (away at Preston). Eccles are a division below PGH but achieved a memorable 30-7 victory against them in a cracking game at Gorton Street last October. The colts will be aiming to repeat that committed performance to progress to the Semi Final, and would appreciate your support along the touchlines.
