Park delight at Sandal victory; BIRKENHEAD PARK.

Byline: NICK MORETON

BIRKENHEAD PARK were delighted with their latest National 3 North victory, away at Sandal 19-16.

Danny Rich, whose late drop goal clinched the points, and skipper Chris Jones were the pick of a determined Park outfit, with player coach Tony Handley sidelined through injury.

Jones said: "We dominated the first half but only had a 9-5 advantage at half time.

"I thought we definitely deserved the win after leading for almost the entire game."

Prop Tom Cassidy impressed in the front row and there was a debut for former youth player Sean Mooney who came into the back row after some impressive displays for the Park Wanderers.

The Wanderers maintained their 100% record with an emphatic 53-0 win over Rossendale at the Upper Park.

Director of Rugby John McNally said: "The Wanderers are going very well and it makes a difference when we need to bring players up to the 1st XV.

"Chris Saidi, Tom Cassidy and Sean Mooney all played well at Sandal after putting in some good displays for the Wanderers. Neil Shaw is doing a great job as the Wanderers coach."

This Saturday Park welcome Rossendale to the Upper Park and McNally said: "Rossendale are one place above us in third position in the table and have only lost twice this season.

"They have recruited a strong side and will be a big challenge for us."
