Lancashire win at Eastern Counties

Lancashire secure second win of 2017 County Championship

Following up on their opening day victory over Northumberland, the Lancashire squad made the long journey to Cambridge University's ground to take on Eastern Counties. Despite being 12-15 in arrears at half-time, a strong 2nd half performance secured a 38-15 win.

Lancashire tries were scored by Fylde's Tom Burtonwood & Scott Armstrong in the 1st half and Bob Birtwell (Sedgley Park), a 2nd from Burtonwood, Lewis Allen (Preston Grasshoppers) & Scott Rawlings (Sale FC) in the 2nd period.

Greg Smith and Lewis Allen both kicked two conversions. They complete their opening round of fixtures against Cheshire at Sale FC on Saturday. This is effectively a semi-final for the Red Rose County. A bonus point win would guarantee a place in the Final at Twickenham on Sunday, 28th May.....
