ALDWINIANS 11 LIVERPOOL ST HELENS 29
26 January 2019
Liverpool St Helens continued their great adventure in the newly formed Lancashire Leagues ADM Premier Division with a first time visit to East Manchester and one of the regions friendliest and traditional of clubs, Aldwinians. They returned to Moss Lane with the job done and a valuable bonus point in the process.
This was a day however, when LSH were far from their best, particularly in the first half when an error strewn performance could have left them well adrift at half time. That they weren’t, was partly due to the blustery conditions causing problems for both sides but mainly, as on previous occasions this season, because their strong and effective defence got them out of trouble, particularly close to the line. As it was they were 5-
The weather worsened in the second half, as LSH seemed to get better. Six minutes into the half saw a decent attack continued by Matt Cunliffe before he was pulled up just short of the line only for flanker Chris Hull to finish off to dive over for the second try. 5-
Thereafter LSH assumed control with a fine try down the left flank from winger Alex McBride, converted by him from the touchline 11-
