Stanley Rangers Under 18s have started the
season in excellent style winning their first 3 league games
and progressing to the Yorkshire Cup Final after a terrific
game against East Leeds. They have amassed a staggering 213
points whilst only conceding 56 points. with only a small
squad, players have had to dig in every week with new signings
Gaz Footy and Craig Fawcett playing their part. Danny Millington
and old head Gaz Whitehead keep the forwards on their toes
while Jamie Chappel, John Nunns and Richard Cattley are playing
We have been dogged by injuries, with Kevin
King having an operation to remove a torn cartilage and looking
like he will be missing 6 weeks. Craig Cawthray who represented
Great Britain Under 18s on 27th November, injured his ankle
and looks like missing the new few weeks, whilst in the match
against East Leeds Carl Clawson who had been playing well
in the centres broke his fore arm. He is in plaster and will
be missing 8 weeks rugby.
It's going to take some commitment and team
spirit to achieve anything like last year's Under 18s but
we are pleased with our performances to date.
Keep up the good work boys.
Charlie, Keith and Gez.
