Warrington visited Bolton School in the Manchester and District 16 & under league. Warrington with only seven players held out in the first quarter against a super fit and well practiced Bolton School. The first quarter finished 3-0 to Bolton as Warrington worked hard to contain Bolton. In the second quarter Bolton pressed home their advantage with seven goals without reply and Bolton pressed Warrington and used the counter attack to full effect. In the third quarter James Collins scored for Warrington to make it 10-1. However Bolton scored six more goals and finished 16-1 up. In the final quarter Bolton continued to score with five further goals to finish 21-1 winners. There were significant differences between the teams with Bolton having a high level of fitness. Although the Warrington players didn’t give up at any time and worked hard throughout Stanley Mainwaring (14) worked hard against the bigger Bolton boys Jacob Wass was Warrington’s best player.
I will add that all Bolton players train 7-8 times per week there is no secret to their success just hard work and lots of training
Warrington’s Team included, Tim Mainwaring, James Collins (1), Harry Pollock, William Morris, Sam Cooper, Stanley Mainwaring, Jacob Wass.
