TRAFFORD MV ended a four-game losing streak with a 38-5 home victory against Crosby St Marys on Saturday.

MV had significant changes as Greg Warren and Henry Brownlow returned from University for Cheshire training camp to strengthen the back division and this proved telling as the game played out.

The hosts started well with two early tries but Crosby were up for the game and hit back with one of their own.

Another score before half time gave Trafford a 19-5 lead at the break but there was still a job to be done in the second period.

Not long into the second half Crosby lost their number eight for swinging a punch and his yellow card was soon turned to red for abusing the referee.

This swung the game and allowed MV to press home their advantage.

Deserved tries came for Jack Mullarkey, Owen Knottley and Warren as MV eased to victory.

This was a much-needed result for MV and they have a big game against Didsbury Toc H at MacPherson Park in the ADM Lancashire Premier League on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm.
