Altrincham Kersal 13 Kirby Lonsdale 15
4:37pm Monday 14th January 2013 in Sport
AK 1st Team travelled to Kirby Lonsdale on Saturday and the early exchanges were fairly even until AK scored a try through Chris Stewart.
AK then pressured for the rest of the half but having had what appeared a good try disallowed, their only reward was a James Nettleton penalty for an 8 – 0 half time lead.
A breakaway try from Kirby at the start of the second half reduced the lead to 8 – 5 and midway through the half Kirby scored again to lead 12 – 8.
AK took the lead back through a try by Jack Wise. However straight from the kick off AK gave away a penalty, which Kirby kicked to lead 15 – 13 and in the heavy conditions were able to hang on for the win.
On Sunday the AK Women’s team beat Chester 26 – 0 through tries by Lee Anne Cardus (2), Amy Jane Dutton and Jasmine Titmuss with Julie Clegg-Haver kicking three conversions.
The AK Mini Teams from Under 7s through to Under 12s are all looking to strengthen their squads and would welcome any new players, their parents and potential coaches to the club. If interested please contact Anthony Edwards on 07592 769621.
