Two tries in each half from Warrington’s second string proved too much for a muscular Glossop outfit, who could only manage three penalties in reply. This third win in a row keeps Warring in third place in the league.
It was Glossop who struck first with a penalty but Warrington soon got on the scoresheet when the irrepressible Mark Tickle screamed over in the corner. Luke Gilhhooley converted magnificently from the touchline. The visitors took advantage of some Warrington indiscipline to kick two penalties and take the lead. Fortunately, this was short-lived as Dan Griffiths smashed through the mid-field defence, drew the full-back and then handed onto Andy Almond who scored. Luke Gilhholey converted to give Warrington a 14-9 half-time lead.
Midway through the second period, Warrington increased their lead, when man-of-the-match, Luke Turner, who continues to outshine his illustrious father, crossed in the corner. Warrington completed a good day at the office when Ollie Hudson intercepted and ran virtually the full length of the field to touch down.
“Although Glossop are firmly rooted at the bottom of the league, this was a good win for us,” said coach Andy McBriers. “It seems that our combination of youth and experience is working well,”
