A very close game with tries for Tom Ainsworth (4) ,Tom Mac Kowaik and Zach Taylor.
Lancashire JRC U16s Plate Final:
Ashton 13-43 Blackburn
The delayed final took place at Aldwinians Rugby Club on a fine warm afternoon. Ashton’s tries came from Josh Meredith and Alex Galbraith, while Travis Powell added a penalty.
Elsewhere, Ashton’s U16s have worked hard all season with a small squad and finishing as runners up in the Plate is an excellent achievement as it puts them amongst the top ten teams in the County.
The U16s will be joining this years U17s Colts to form Senior Colts next season, and new players are welcome to join in.
