Match & Ground Enjoyment 10/10
Today's game against the tough tackling visitors from Cumbria was a ding-dong, rip-roaring, end to end crackerjack of a game. A real credit to the league.
Miners took a 20-6 HT lead but Egremont came powering back in the 2nd Half to get within two points. From then on it was end to end action with Miners securing the victory after enduring a sustained period of Egremont pressure and numerous crunching tackles.
A special mention to Joint 1st team Managers Allan & Paul who are both fantastic guys and could not be more welcoming. They showed impressive class.
As Chubby Checker used to sing "Let's do the Twist again ...like we did this Summer .." and as a result of today's experience i certainly will be coming to Twist Lane sooner, rather than later, as it is simply superb in everyway.
Best RL day out this season by far.
