Trafford MV's season seems to be going from bad to worse after a 44-3 defeat at Aldwinians.

A much-changed back line forced with players unavailable saw opportunities given to young players with others being forced to play out of their regular roles.

And MV struggled defensively, allowing the home team to stroll through time after time, without a hand being laid on the attacking players.

Man-for-man tackling seemed unheard of as Aldwinians created overlaps at will and when the breaks were in the middle of the field the runner merely laid ball off to good supporting runners, a worrying sign as MV look to stay in the ADM Lancashire Premier League.

Three first half tries had the game won for Aldwinians as MV only had a Dom West penalty to respond with.

A decent period of possession and pressure showed some promise for MV either side of half time but there was no reward.

Both sides were very slow getting ball away from breakdowns and against a set defence there was no penetration from MV.

Captain Chris Ward, Andy Quigley and Aaron Fagan put in determined defensive efforts and veteran forward John Kevan was still grafting away after 80 minutes.

Aldwinians collected their bonus point and continued to threaten throughout the second half, scoring finally in the last minute to complete the rout.

This weekend MV will be at home in a must win game against fellow strugglers Wigan who MV defeated by a single point earlier in the season 18-17.

A win now could be just enough to trigger the change but the odds are stacked largely against the club avoiding relegation.

MV are calling on supporters to cheer the team on this weekend in at a 2.15pm kick-off and enjoy the start of the 2020 Six Nations.
