Normanton Knights



1st Team

Sat 5 Mar 2022 | League | Away

Normanton Knights hosted a Wigan St Judes team boosted by the inclusion of ex Wigan players James Worthington and Shaun Ainscough but managed to keep them at bay, winning 22-10 thanks in the main to an excellent first half. The hosts built a 16-0 interval advantage. Stuart Biscomb scored first and was soon followed to the line by Jacob Crossland. Worthington was sinbinned for using some choice language and this didn't help St Judes cause. When Ashley Haynes crossed in the 29th minute and Joe Crossland added his second goal, Normanton looked comfortable. Early in the second half Joel Pell added a fourth try to make it 20-0 before Judes began their fightback. Connor Parkinson and Reece Matthews claimed quickfire tries and Danny Cassidy, signed in the close season from Ince Rose Bridge, kicked a goal. The Knights then made sure of victory when Crossland kicked a penalty with four minutes remaining.
