|Sunday, 25 July 2021||10's - Golds||Saddleworth Rangers||Away||32-30|
We travelled over to Saddleworth for an early kick off, with only 11 players. Each one of them committed to the game in warm up.
Rangers kicked off, Judes receiving the ball, Rangers were straight in with their defense stopping Judes from getting anywhere near the try line in the first set. Judes defended extremely well to stop Saddleworth from crossing the try line.
Again, Saddleworth’s defense was too strong to allow Judes to sneak through. Saddleworth scoring the first try of the game. 6-0.
Judes ball and with a massive run from Alfie Jennings taking his side up the field for Zak Lushchan to push his way over the try line. Will Cobley converting 6-6.
Saddleworth repeated their set with another try making the score 12-6. Before Will Cobley used his fancy foot work and went storming over for his own try, Jayden King converting. 12-12.
Just before half time Saddleworth scored another try, powering through to make it 18-12.
HALF TIME. Saddleworth 18 Wigan St Judes 12.
First try scored of the second half came from Jayden King, who received an amazing off load from Will Cobley. Conversion missed. 18-16.
Saddleworth made some great yardage but was unable to score with the outstanding defense from Judes.
The sun started to get warmer and with no subs, the boys started to lag a little, they were tired but determined to commit fully to the game.
Judes were more or less on Saddleworth’s try line, trying to get out of trouble, the boys had to organize themselves. Toby Hutchinson ran onto the ball from deep running down the line with half of Saddleworth’s pack on his back, to score a brilliant try. Conversion missed. 18-20.
The game was well and truly on, as both teams wanted the win, the Judes boys wanted the game more. Another good set with brilliant teamwork and leadership, sent Will Cobley over for his second try of the game, Tommy Shaw Converting 18-26.
Saddleworth fought back with a try from the halfway line on the first play of the ball, completing the conversion. 24-26.
Saddleworth fought hard to keep Judes out, returning with another try and conversion of their own. 30-26.
The last few minutes of the game we had a winning try from Jayden King who weaved his way through the Saddleworth defense. Paddy Kelly getting the conversion. 30-32.
FINAL SCORE Saddleworth 30. Wigan St Judes 32.

We played really well in defence today completing more sets than we have done for quite a while, showing a great determination to protect our line.
We also worked really hard in attack with some great solo efforts along with some great team tries with some spells of passing which we've been working on in training.
Today was definitely a performance the kids can be really proud of.
Coaches trophies went to Joe B for some excellent tackling efforts and some great pace in attack. The other trophy went to Jayden for some great defensive efforts and being full of determination.
The opposition coaches trophy went to Phoebe who was brilliant throughout showing good communication skills and doing really well to set up a try late on from passing out of a tackle.
|Sunday, 25 July 2021||9's - Golds||Limehurst Lions||Away||52-48||An early start for us all today as we travelled to Oldham. With only 8 players available we knew we needed to put 100% in for the whole game and that is exactly what every single player did. It was very close and an enjoyable game for both the players and the spectators. Once again the players team work and determination paid off.|
