A Big Win for the Colts
Sale Senior Colts earned a stunning bonus point victory against local rivals Bowdon on Sunday. The 29 – 21 victory secures third place in the seven team Halbro North West Colts preliminary A league and has guaranteed top flight rugby for Sale when the main season starts on 5th November. This is an amazing turnaround for the team and was the third consecutive win following three straight defeats. Sale’s tries came from Josh Higson, Jayden Gunn, James Plested (2) and Jarrod Townson with Callum Ramsey adding two conversions.
Head Coach Ian McKerchar said
“ the players should be very proud of their achievement in this short preliminary league, especially considering our only goal was just to stay up in A league for the conference league. So to finish third was a good result and testament to their hard work, exemplary attitude and tremendous team spirit.
The players have really bought into the ethos of the team and are driving the way they play themselves which is really starting to bear results and was the catalyst to the turnround in results they produced. Now they have the belief and confidence to back up their ability, combined with their emphatic drive to seek improvement and learning in every training session and match, we’re all very much looking forward to what will undoubtably be a very tough but enjoyable remainder of the season in top flight colts rugby”
There is still room in the Senior Colts Squad (under 18s) for additional players – any potential players can contact Ian McKercher on 07958 687481 to discuss.
