A warm welcome awaited Sandbach at Burnage on this frosty December morning. There can’t have been many games played in Cheshire so it was a good call to arrange this fixture as Burnage are fortunate enough to have a full size all weather 3G pitch, which does exactly what it says on the tin.
Burnage under 16s are quite a new side, formed only last season but put in a valiant performance of committed organised and disciplined rugby which was a reflection of the Clubs efforts to get their Mini Junior section going. They weren’t slow to score a couple of well taken tries themselves when Sandbach lost concentration.
As a development fixture this was an opportunity to play a couple of players in different positions and the playing surface was also ideal for lads returning from injuries. So was a very worthwhile mornings rugby.
Friendly and hospitable throughout, we look forward to welcoming Burnage over to Sandbach.
