East Under 7s win derby game East Under 7s win derby game



By Ann Molyneaux

The Leigh East Leopards U7s travelled to Manchester Road today in their first of many big derbies against Leigh Miners in their rugby days.

In the first ten minutes the miners took it to East and claimed 3 quickfire tries without reply from the East boys taking an early 12-0 lead, after the break when the lads had woken up they stepped their speed and intensity up with great running and strong defence halting the miners in a massive effort to which they pulled back to 12-12 from then on there was only one team who were going to take the spoils some great passing and offloads by the red and blacks led to some superb team tries, so with great commitment and team spirit East took the local bragging rights with a 28-40 victory

Tries: K.Redford (3), E.Galvin (2), H.Brindle (2),  F.Twiss (1), L.Hardman (1), C.Whittle (1)
MOM: Charlie Whittle
