Eccles 4th 65 V Bury 3rd 0 25/11/2014

The 4th team were on top form dominating from the opening whistle taking the game to the opposition before they could settle. Urged on by scrum half Peter Jones (just back from Greece squeezing in an appearance whilst en route to Norway) the forwards relentlessly kept driving forward leaving Bury to defence desperately .The pressure told and full back Wes Harrison most by accident dummied his way over for the opening try.Forward Craig Belson soon added a second showing sheer determination crash through for a score against his old club.Eccles spurned a number of chances with centre Mark Plumbridge earning the Blind Pugh award for having the ball stolen from him by Bury’s smallest player with the line in sight. No matter Alex Pugh ploughed through for the third touchdown quickly followed by a lightening break up the wing by Anthony McNally for a try in the corner .Bury were still trying to resist and ever hopefull but a further try from Wes and then one from winger Ellis with an acrobatic dive in the corner saw them 32-0 behind at the interval. The second half proved even harder for them with visits to the home half only seemingly only occurring from restarts .Tries were slow in coming before the dam burst with a quick fire double from replacement full back Gary Dunham causing Bury to completely lose confidence .Stuart Smith worked his way through for a further try before nearing grabbing the Blind Pugh award when mucking up a certain score . Pete Jones and Sam Delaney helped themselves to simple tries as the visitors defence self destructed . The scoreline was a fair reflection of the fourth teams dominance and with such a performance from all the squad picking a man of the match was nigh impossible but decisions have to made and the Jolly Roger pennant was shared by forward Andy Waring for those grafting below decks and winger Anthony Mcnally for those corsairs top side .
