Winnington Park 14 - Sandbach 32

Thu 28 April 2005

In some ways, it was a strange venue to complete their final fixture of the season, having played at Winnington Park against Wilmslow only four days ago in their victorious Cheshire Cup final match, but maybe an appropriate venue to complete the season. Arguably, they had nothing to lose irrespective of the result, but then again having done so well this season, to loose the final game of the season would have been an unacceptable result. Certainly, Winnington Park would have been more than happy to beat the Cheshire Cup winners!

So although there was a danger that this game could have been treated too complacently, it was not treated as such. Sure, there were areas within the game which could have been improved upon, and which they would have been punished for, only four days ago. For instance, there was too much kicking down-field, when it would have been better to have passed the ball down the line. But then, I suspect there were a decidedly 'burnt out' team on the pitch, where fancy mis-moves and the like were not the order of the day!

I can't specifically recall the sequence of events, but Sandbach scored six tries to Winnington Park's two, and with one conversion and two conversions scored respectively, the final tally gave Sandbach a winning margin of eighteen points.

Try scorers for Sandbach were outside-centre Richard Murray (2); and one each for hooker and Captain Andy Nash; flanker Matt Jackson; winger Alex George; and inside-centre Ali B.

A fitting result for a great team who have lost just a single game all season, and by only two points at that!
