To win our 7th county title and our last game as a group is good enough but to win in such dramatic circumstances makes it very special indeed. 
How we scored 21 Points is a minor miracle. Chester enjoyed 90% possession + field position and we were left defending for long periods. But time and time again we came up with unbelievable defence to prevent Chester scoring and building the decent lead that their possession/field position warranted. Our defensive efforts enabled us to always stay close to Chester in 2h and saved up a final opportunity to come back and win. 

In the beginning we set out to build a competitive rugby team. It was the main objective when we came together in 2006. It is therefore very satisfying, 12 seasons later in 2018 that we are still as competitive as in those early years in the minis and then into the junior age grades. Our 7 Cheshire Cup titles highlight that also as do our more recent Colts trophy haul, North Division Champions and National Cup runners up. Fantastic stuff
