SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH
PERCY PARK 7 – 22 BURNAGE
In the National Leagues in the event of a colour clash, the onus is on the away side to change kit, so Burnage arrived sporting a snazzy number in all shades of pastel greens being the corporate colours of their sponsor. By half time it was nigh on impossible to tell either side apart, The pitch seemed to be holding up remarkably well despite the overnight watering, but at 1.30pm the weather gods deemed that the game be played in a bath of mud and it was the visitors that adapted the better.
Burnage kicked off, with Park retrieving the ball and commencing a spell of 10 minutes camped in the visitors half, but the Burnage defence was solid and Percy Park were unable to capitalise on possession or territory by moving the scoreboard from zero.
