U14s beat Eccles in close encounter

By

Solid defensive display

The U14s played Eccles away before Christmas in what ended up being a comprehensive victory. We expected Eccles to turn up and play hard in the rematch and so they did. However, Clitheroe's U14s have come a long way through the 2018/19 season and never more so in their resolute defending.

Despite solid competition from a very physical, aggressive Eccles pack our boys held firm; resisting attack after attack. The defensive line moved up well and consistently forced Eccles onto the back heel.

In what ended up being a tight encounter Clitheroe prevailed 21-12 winners, scoring three excellent tries and making all three conversions.

This was a solid performance, but the main point to highlight was the superb maturity and discipline that the Clitheroe boys showed - yet again! They understand how the game should be played and stick to their task, regardless of what else was happening on the pitch around them, defended solidly and took their chances to score when they arose.

Plenty of work to do in training on Wednesday ahead of our visit to local rivals Burnley next Sunday.
