Clean Sweep

Date: 24 September 2012

Saturday 22nd September will go down as a red letter day in the 2012-13 season. All six Hoppers senior teams recorded victories in their fixtures to achieve a clean sweep.

The 1st XV recorded a 55-12 victory over a tough Hull side racking up 7 tries in the process.

The 2nd and 3rd XV’s maintained their unbeaten starts to the season with a 28-19 win over Macclesfield 2 and a 63-0 win over Ashton-on-Mersey 2 respectively. Made all the more impressive since both games were away from home.

Simon Walmsley and his 4th XV travelled to  Aldwinians 3 and recorded a 51-7 victory which included a drop goal from former first team hooker Richie Sands, I kid you not!

The 5th XV hosted Blackburn 3 and ran up a very impressive 68-8 victory.

The pressure was now on the 6th XV to deliver and they managed to squeeze past Burnley 3 13-5 to complete an excellent day for the club!
