BOLTON Under-15s dominated their friendly at Sedgley Park, lending their depleted hosts some players, but ultimately running out 58-12 winners.

George Whitehead began the rout and fellow forward Connah Mansfield also crossed the line.

The backs got in on the act too and Myles Garth scored two tries. Further scores from Lewis Picton, Seb Donnelly and Garth’s third made it 43-0 at the break.

In a more balanced second half Garth scored his fourth try before Sedgley saved some face with two scores. But a late try by Oliver Carberry, followed by Picton’s second, completed the rout.

The u14s were even more dominant in their game at an illness-weakened Sedgley as they put on 51 points without reply.

Leon Hodson ran in under the posts with less than a minute played and scored his second soon after.

Oskar Chadderton powered over for his first try for the club and Harry McDermott went over in the corner. Oliver Keogh contributed two solo tries either side of Fred Holt Gregson’s score.

Hodson completed Sedgley’s miserable day with two more tries at the end of the game.

Sedgley’s u16s got the better of their Bolton counterparts in an 83-0 victory.

With great pace and power throughout their team, Sedgley never let the pressure drop and, though Bolton battled hard, could not prevent a heavy defeat.

The club’s u13s were also defeated, their losing streak continuing at home to Sedgley, who won the match at Avenue Street 45-5.

The visitors ran in four tries before Bolton had got into their stride but when they got going they got on the board through man-of-the-match Kaiden Unsworth’s try. The full-back collected Nathan Robinson’s pass and sprinted away from the defence to touch down.

Bolton’s u18s saw their lapses in concentration punished as they lost a friendly at home to Rossendale 12-5.

With wind and rain limiting any chance of constructive play the first half ended scoreless.

With the wind at their backs in the second half Rossendale pinned the home team back but took until midway through the second half to take advantage when Bolton switched off and they scored the first try.

Five minutes later a high kick into Bolton’s 22 was spilled and, with the home players stopped, it was collected and run in for Rossendale’s second try.

The final action of the game at least went Bolton’s way, Zak Grundy diving over to complete a fine team move

The u12s’ 12-a-side match at home to Rochdale ended in a 20-15 victory for the Cherry and White boys.

It took five minutes for Bolton to go ahead, Fafa Mandungumama touching down and, despite four tacklers on him, Daniel McGuiness scored their second try five minutes later.

Josh Bentley-Hughes scored a superb breakaway try before Rochdale scored their first. Jack Good created and scored Bolton’s fourth try and although Rochdale crossed twice more they could not get a fourth try.
