Floodlit win for Junior Colts


On a very wet and muddy evening under the Moorend floodlights the Junior Colts put on a very entertaining game against the Baildon Bees in front of a good crowd.

In the early stages the Cleck forwards dominated but it took 17 minutes before Jack Seddon broke loose to score under the posts. Danny Clark kicked the easy conversion.

Two minutes later Seddon sent winger George Speight free on half way and he sprinted past the covering defence to score, Clark again converting. Captain Josh White peeled away from a maul to touch down on 32 minutes again converted by Clark and Connor Wright finished off in the left hand corner to make it 26-0 at half time.

A collection was taken at half time for Keighley Junior colt Nathan Cubitt who broke his neck earlier in the season.

Twenty minutes into the second half Josh White added his second try (his 18th of the season)when he collected a cross kick from Danny Clark.

Cleck lost Adam Clough with a chipped shoulder bone mid way through the half.

Rob Brown completed the scoring with a few minutes remaining when Cleck worked a good lineout near to the Bees line.

All credit to the Bees who played their part in the entertainment and never gave up.

The victory means that a win away at Pontefract on Sunday will clinch the Division 4 West title.

The lads have already qualified for the National Under 17 Shield and entertain Northwich of the Lancashire/Cheshire League in the Northern Quarter Final on Sunday 4th March.

Team :- Green, Bairstow, Wright, Robinson, Speight, Beatsy, Hirst, Mortimer, Brown, Clark, Seddon, Brannan, Neal, Denham, White
