ALTRINCHAM Kersal first team have had an emphatic start to their new season by gaining maximum points from their first two Lancs/Cheshire Division One matches.

A tough home victory against Rochdale on September 1 saw a 25-19 bonus-point win, and a 41-13 away win against Leigh saw a second bonus-point result.

On both occasions the squad performed as a well-drilled unit and have delivered the results following a hard and dedicated pre-season build-up.

Saturday’s success for the club continued with the seconds defeating Fylde Saracens 35-14.

The senior colts have also got their season off to a flying start, securing two good wins on the bounce.

A resounding 31-7 triumph in their opening match against Vale of Lune was followed by another determined victory – 29-15 against Blackburn senior colts last weekend.

The squad has been bolstered by the addition of some very capable players from last season’s junior colts, stepping up to the plate and playing some great rugby.

Altrincham Kersal RFC are always happy to welcome players at any level and age group with the club having an established and successful mini and junior section, and a ladies' team as well as three senior men's sides.
