AFTER suffering defeat on Saturday, Martin Jones and his men know that destiny is now out of their own hands.
AFTER suffering defeat on Saturday, Martin Jones and his men know that destiny is now out of their own hands. Despite still being in the race for the playoff spot, Northwich have now assumed control and even three bonus point wins may still not be enough for LSH.
Nonetheless a home win on Saturday against near rivals Leigh will keep their interest alive as well as prolonging the season. On a positive note the return from injury of Alisdair Sutherland and John Pape will boost the options Jones has available to him.
Another positive from the weekend was the performance of the second team against Broughton Park. The side containing no less than nine colts ran out comfortable 48-10 winners. The integration of younger players into the senior teams has been a key feature for the team this season and is vital for the long term success of any club.
Two of LSH’s youngsters, Alisdair Sutherland and James Laycock, have been part of the successful Lancashire U20s who finished runners up to Yorkshire in the Northern U20s county championship.
On a lighter note the pre match atmosphere at the club on Saturday will be livened by some old, but familiar faces. LSH Casuals will take on Leigh Vets in a curtain raiser before the first teams take to the field. Kick off 1.30.
