Eccles U10s v Blackburn 19/01/14

Eccles U10s v Blackburn (home)  Sunday 19th January 2014

After a heavy 35-10 defeat in the match at Blackburn earlier in the season, Eccles 10s were looking for revenge. With a few new players added to the squad (from other Eccles Junior teams), there was a fresh look about the line up. The extra large squad allowed each player to play 2 of the 4 quarters played, and made substitutions much more manageable!

The two sides were closely matched in the opening 10 minutes, with Henry opening the scoring for Eccles, before Blackburn replied. Luke F then scored to put Eccles ahead again, but Blackburn came back to level things up again at two tries apiece.

Eccles then stepped up a couple of gears and ran away with the game with a fantastic display in the second half.

Tries from George, Luke H, and then from debutants Sam and Billy (2) settled the match for Eccles with a thumping 35-10 victory.

Result: Eccles 35 v 10 Blackburn

Match squad: Luke H, Luke F, Joe, Jake, Henry, Harry, Will B, George, Lucas, Finlay, Harvey, Connor, Oliver, Will R, Sam, Billy
