Wythenshawe Junior Colts 0-40 Ashton Junior Colts:

Ashton’s newly formed Junior Colts got their first game off to a great start.

A Billy Travis try on 13 minutes was converted by Josh Meredith, George McCallum barged over from 10m seven minutes later and Alex Galbraith got the visitors third try which Meredith converted to give the visitors a 19-0 lead.

Niall Metcalfe caught a lineout ball and broke free making 20m before offloading and getting the ball back to score under the posts. Meredith converted for 26-0 at half-time.

The second half saw Ashton continue to dominate a spirited home team. George Guerin at full back had been making surging runs all game and finally got his reward with a try he converted and the scoring was finished off by Jack Schofield working the blind side well with a good offload and got the return pass to drive over for a try. Meredith added his fourth conversion.

Sedgley Park U13s 30-25 Ashton U13s:

Tom Ainsworth(2), Jude Roberts, Matt Cope and Jake Barlow got the tries in another very close game for the 13s.
