Bolands Buccaneers turn up the heat!
The table-topping Seconds were home alone to Leigh 2s at Waterloo Road and keen to continue their perfect start to the season. Having played 4 won 4, including a 93-0 victory over second placed Littleborough 2s, Andy’s boys were looking to cement their position at the summit. And as it turned out, how some!
A depleted Leigh side bolstered by some Southport players were put to the sword by a rampant team clinically chalking up 14 tries scored by Joe Spencer (2), Chris Tees (2), Eddie Fashoni (2), Will Hughes, Kristian Griffiths, Billy Nicholl, Cameron Williams and Boland. But it was James (Jinksy) Thompkinson who lived up to his nickname with a sparkling jug-worthy hat trick. ably assisted by Josh Spencer with 12 conversions.
Boland commented “The boys are really playing with a lot of confidence which is great to see. The next two weeks will really show what they are capable of with two tough away games against Bolton in the League this Saturday then Altrincham Kersal in the Cup both unbeaten, so if we can win these we're in for a successful season.”
