|Wednesday, 13 October 2021||10's - Golds||St Pats||Home||42-6||Wigan St Judes U10’s Golds V Wigan St Pats.|
A midweek game called form a postponed fixture. The Gold’s welcomed their archrivals St Pats down to the meadow.
What started off to be a chilly evening so turned to hot!
Pats kicked off, Judes receiving the ball, the Judes boys ran the ball in hard, passing out to Will Cobley who used his fancy footwork to drive himself to the try line. Paddy Kelly converting. 6-0.
St Pats ball, they threw the ball across well, number 1 Ffion W catching the ball and sending our boys all over the park as she teased them. The ball was lost not far from their own try line, Jayden King collecting it and taking our boys up the park, he eventually got the ball back to take himself over for a try. Conversion missed. 10-0.
Again some fast hands from Pats and quick thinking, they bounded over for a try of their own. With a successful conversion. 10-6.
Judes really had their heads screwed on as they tried new things that really did pay off, Tommy Shaw receiving the ball, he only had one mission and that was to get over for a try, he ran so strong, there was no stopping him, he weaved his way through the strong defense to score on the mark of half time. Conversion missed. 14-6.
Halt time score Wigan St Judes 14 Wigan St Pats 6.
Second half, Judes kicked off to Pats. Judes really stepped up the defense, putting pressure on the Pats side. Pats knocked the ball on, Jayden King collected and ran the whole way, without an opposition player in sight. Will Cobley converted. 20-6.
Pats collected the ball, again pressure was too much for Pats, another knock on, Judes were amazing at attacking, getting the right players to run the ball in, then passing out to Henlea Baynham who rolled himself in for a try. Declan Haskayne converting. 26-6.
Pats ball, they completed their set, but unfortunately Judes were too strong.
Henlea wasn’t finished yet, he ran the ball from deep, to score his second of the night. Jayden King converting. 32-6.
Pat’s ball, they ran down the park before Jayden King and Tommy Shaw got them in touch just before their try line. Handover to Judes again with some excellent skills, Spencer Parkinson scored his first ever try for the Gold’s. Conversion missed. 36-6.
St Pats couldn’t get down the park with a forward pass, Judes knew what to do, they got the ball to Will Cobley who raced down the field for the final try of the game, Tommy Shaw converting. 42-6
Final score Wigan St Judes 42 Wigan St Pats 6.
Amazing effort from everyone of the boys, they really stepped up their game tonight. Discipline was on point, Well done for an amazing game.

|Sunday, 17 October 2021||11's||Leigh East||Away||6-16||Leigh East U11s v St Judes U11s|
Sunday 18th October
(16 - 6 lost)
St Judes put in a good all round performance and were unlucky not to get the win away at Leigh East. Judes started the game on the front foot making good yards and showing their toughness in defence. Owen Gibson controlled the game well at scrum half and quick hands put Ben Green in for the first try of the game. Layton Dewhurst added the two points.
Judes kept Leigh East at bay for much of the first half with everyone working hard for each other. Unfortunately, Leigh East bagged a try and a goal just before half time to level the scores.
The second half was an equally determined effort from the Judes lads but a number of unlucky errors and penalties saw them lose momentum which eventually led to Leigh East taking the lead with two tries.
Despite the result, the Judes lads never gave in and showed resilience and determination right to the end.

|Sunday, 17 October 2021||12's - Maroons||Clock Face||Away||22-6||The Maroons were down to just 15 players today with a few players absent, so it was a good chance for a few of the lads to get some good game time. This will be integral as you never know when you are going to called upon and all the lads need to be ready for action.|
An even start by both sides with no one really pressing over the advantage. A dropped ball by one of our lads about 20 metres out and Clockface were very much on the attack, they then went over in the left corner. They then made the conversion. 6-0. This was going to show what our lads were all about, they’ve not really been down in a game for a while. Would be good to see how they reacted. Step up Joel Makin, he took control, winning the ball back and then getting a good 40 metres down the field, the Maroons were very much on the attack. This then gave Ellis a run to Zac and the big lad went over to reduce the deficit. Billy converting to level the scores. An even contest in the 1st half and the scores were level at half time. 6-6.
Second half started brightly for Jude’s, some great pressure forcing the Clockface lads to make a few mistakes. A penalty was given about 10 metres out and Joel Makin tapped and ran. No-one was stopping this boy today, with 4 toast inside him, he was fired up. 10-6.
Jude’s were on a roll, some great tackling by James, Kyle and Scott Junior keeping our lead intact. A great run by Connor nearly getting a try in the corner but for a great covering tackle. Daniel and Lennon with some great tackling on the edges too. Also shout outs to Lewis and Oliver who did some great tackles today. A great mazy run by Billy and Maroons lead was extended, he converted his own try. 16-6. Some good play and it wouldn’t be a Sunday morning without an Ellis Corfield try, Billy duly converting to make it 22-6 and that was the final score.
I thought the match was a great test for the lads, with a few players missing, they had to show what they were all about and all the lads stepped up to the mark. You never know when you are going to get called upon to do your bit for the team. One tackle can change a game.
Well done to everyone and especially to Joel Makin who dragged the team through the trenches at times today. A fantastic display. MVP.
|Sunday, 17 October 2021||18's||Halton Farnworth Hornets||Home||26-18||Our last game of the 2021 Season saw a tough fixture against Halton Farnworth Hornets at Parsons Meadow. Bit of a shock start as Halton scored off the back of the very first set. Judes soon picked themselves up and Brook who was playing on the wing today, knew exactly what he had to do to score back to back tries. The first one coming off the back of a Halton knock-on, which was pounced on by Logan and good hands out to Brook saw him dart to the corner and dive over. His second came from a shout for a pin-point accurate kick from Callum and Brook having the confidence to out jump his opposite and plonk the ball down in one swift movement…….”he scores where he wants”!!|
Judes were threatening in attack today, looking to score everytime they got their hands on the ball. Tom H steamed over the line and did get the ball down, unfortunately the ref called held up so Tom was denied. Play continued and a chip over to Danny W on the opposite wing looked sure to score, but a good tackle put pay to that. Judes were unlucky to not come away with more points, but Halton headed down the other end and to rub salt in the wounds were gifted a penalty close to our line, which put them in for a converted try and 2 points to the good. Judes replied on their very next set and Rio who was having an outstanding game, hit the perfect line and showed super strength to take defenders over the line and reach over and score. A good conversion from Callum gave us the lead 16-12, which they took into the second half, after robust defence which had been lead by Dasos and Jack A ended the half strongly.
Judes came out second half and looked like their energy had been zapped a little and again Halton were first to score, finding a gap in our defence and kicking over to score a converted try, pushing them back in the lead 16-18. Judes found something deep within them to take this game by the scruff of the neck and start to dominate it. Judes put in attack after attack, strong carries from our forwards and Josh, who was literally inches from scoring. This gave our halves space to work with and a shallow cross field kick saw Brook fly at it to nail his hattrick, we all thought he’d got it with inches to spare, but unfortunately the ref denied him. Judes stuck at it though and fierce defence kept Halton at bay and Brogan takes the play of the ball, darts for the line and cheekily sneaks the ball under the defender to score his first 18s try. We finally had the lead 20-18 in the final minutes of the game and had to give it everything they had left in the tank. I’m not sure where they summoned the energy, but aggressive hits ensured we held onto the lead, with a stonking one from Rio which sealed him the Man of the Match for his performance. In the dying seconds Halton were awarded a kick to touch and everyone’s hearts were in their mouth and with only 1 play of the ball left, Judes really got in their faces, determined not to let the game go! Halton tried a chip over, but luckily it landed in Callum Palmer’s hands who showed a clean pair of heals and sprinted off to score from half way and a conversion in front of the sticks for Callum S, saw us take a jubilant win over top of the league 26-18!
A truly awesome team performance where every lad contributed to the game. We were fierce in both attack and defence. The win felt comfortable, we played with confidence, it was entertaining and an utterly superb game to finish an unreal season. It’s been such a strange experience this year, from starting the season with barely 13 players, we’ve had to learn on the job, develop, bond and evolve all in one season. Extremely proud of this team from every player who has put their bodies on the line and played with determination and passion, to our u16s who stepped up early, played with confidence and fitted in seamlessly. Thanks to Sam who has constantly patched our lads up and kept them on the field and special thanks to our coaches, Darron, Andy and Simon, who have worked tirelessly with the lads, recruited well and showed the belief that this team is a force to be reckoned with. Huge Thanks and Well Done to all involved and here’s to an equally successful 2022!
