Latchford Albion 16 Wigan St Patricks 18

COACH Mike Byron was pleased with his young Latchford side, despite suffering a late defeat to Wigan St Patricks.

Lewis Wightman crossed and Sam Dobson converted, followed by tries for Albions from Ryan Hickman and Jamie Birchall in the second half.

But Albion hearts were broken when a converted score at the death gave Wigan the points.

Byron said: "I am proud of the effort and having six under 18s in the squad points to a great future for Latchford.

“We are still looking to recruit players to bolster the squad and all are welcome."
