West Park 33 Glossop 22

St Helens Star: Dave Dickinson gets the ball away Dave Dickinson gets the ball away

ANOTHER maximum points win, this time at the expense of fourth placed Glossop, was just reward for some exhilarating play in particular from West Park’s young back division.

The forwards also contributed tellingly against a much bigger opposition pack, aided in the second half of the match when injuries to both props forced the remainder of the game to be competed with uncontested scrums.

An early penalty converted by the visitors stand off was preceded by an injury to prop Martin Kimberley, forcing the evergreen replacement Mike Simpson to take his place in the front row.

Park took the lead when a piercing run by centre Kal Warburton beat the visitors defence, finding hooker Williams in support to cross for a try.

Glossop responded with a converted try.

Undaunted, and with the home side’s pack continuing to hold their own, Park’s backs fashioned another fine try with stand off Liam Hill squeezing in at the corner, converted by Warren Hunt.

Full back Matt Savage’s astute kick was picked up at speed by winger Hunt who outstripped the defence for a converted try.

Glossop’s second row forced his way over the line, to narrow Park’s advantage to only two points.

With a plentiful supply of ball West Park’s lively backs were quick to press home their superiority, and another telling kick from Matt Savage was hacked on by winger Lee Rosney who gathered to score a fine try which once again Hunt was able to convert.

Prop Dale Morley picked up and went over from close range, a try converted again by man of the match Warren Hunt.

Park travel to take on league champions New Brighton, on Saturday, kick off 3pm.
