U11s beat Burnley
By Christopher Barraclough
Impressive, attacking rugby
Clitheroe u-11s travelled to Burnley to put on an impressive performance of running rugby.
Despite long periods of Burnley possession, where their physical forwards tied up the ball for long periods, Clitheroe's patient defence only let the hosts in for a solitary try.
Clitheroe on the other hand, used every ounce of possession to maximum effect, with some scintillating runs from deep positions.
The u-11s were at their most impressive however, when willing ball carriers tied up defenders with surging runs into contact before halfbacks sent it down the line to Clitheroe's speed merchants in the back line.
Try of the match involved almost every player in a sweeping move that went back and forth across the width of the field before crashing over the try-line in the middle of the park.
The u-11s will face sterner opposition against Upper Wharfedale this Sunday, but if they can secure possession, their attacking potential is enormous.
