Date published: Monday, May 13, 2013

OLDHAM RL under-20s followed up their 35-18 win against Halifax with a 48-0 trouncing of Hemel Stags at the Pennine Way Arena in Hemel Hempstead.

Full-back Steven Nield scored a try and six goals — 16 points — while other tries were scored by Andrew Ball, Sam Singleton, Richard Ward, Danny Rasool, Brad Hargreaves, Rhys Wareing, Matty Foreman and Patrick Fitzsimmons.
Said coach Phil Costin: “We squandered a few chances and we could have played a little bit smarter on attack, but we defended excellently when we had to — it was good to ‘nil’ them — so credit must go to all 17 lads.”
Team: Nield; Dyson, Bradley, Wilson, R Ward; Fitzsimmons, Singleton; Marriott, Ball, Hall, Hargreaves, Hughes, Rasool. Subs: Wareing, Sharratt, Sargeant, Foreman.
The under-20s will be seeking their third win in a row when they play York City Knights at Whitebank this Friday, May 17, kicking off at 8pm.
