Hollinwood shake off late arrivals
Date published: 14 December 2012
HOLLINWOOD earned a 20-16 home victory over Whinmoor in Pennine League Division Five, despite playing the first 15 minutes two players short.
Tom McMullon and Phil Bell could only enter the fray after a late arrival from work — an by then the hosts had already raced out of the blocks.
Liam Parker notched two early tries, one converted by Andy Gorey. Alistair Williams crossed to extend the lead, Gorey adding the extras.
On the stroke of half-time, Williams forced his way through again to hand his side a 20-6 interval advantage.
After the break the away outfit raised their game and threatened to go home with a win, but the home team held firm for a hard-earned triumph.
WATERHEAD, looking forward to life in Division One of the National Conference League, need a new coach.
The decision of Paul Geener and Jon Perks to step down because of work commitments has left a void.
But it is one Waterhead officials are hoping to fill soon, especially as pre-season training is due to star next month.
Waterhead chairman Pete Beswick said: “There has been interest from players to join us, which is
encouraging, while the youngsters already at the club will have that bit more experience behind them.”
