Moore 32 Capenhurst 15

WITH their Moss Lane home at full capacity, Moore provided the perfect celebration of the club’s 50th anniversary.

Players past and present gathered to mark the milestone, and the current crop rose to the occasion in a game they led almost from start to finish to make sure of back-to-back league victories.

Max Holland stood out as he provided two tries and a brace of assists to ensure the party could start in fitting fashion.

Those in attendance were treated to an excellent start as Holland brok the line and offloaded for Jack Harvey to score.

Visitors Capenhurst got back into the game via a penalty, but Holland once again proved the catalyst for Moore as another line break and offload set up a try for Adam Wadsworth.

The set-piece was Capenhurst’s most potent weapon and they duly drove over from a scrum to reduce Moore’s lead to two points, but Holland added a crucial score just before the break to give Moore an extra cushion.

The hosts started the second half brightly, but again it would be the visitors who struck first as they closed right up behind Moore once again.

However, this only served to spark the hosts into action, with Sam Craven slotting a penalty before crossing the line himself to take the game beyond the visitors.

Fittingly, it was Holland who added the final try to wrap up the victory and make sure Moore’s celebrations could begin on a high note.

The result means Moore now sit sixth in the North West Intermediate League Division Three South.

Moore’s next game sees them travel to tenth-place Village Spartans on Saturday.
