Cheshire Plate joy for Nomads


Southern Nomads have ended the season in style.


They won the Cheshire Plate for the second time in three years on Easter Saturday with a 24-17 victory over Parkonians.


Tries from Andy Lean, man of the match Conor Stevens and a double from Steve McHugh, with two conversions from Will Caine, clinched the silverware at Winnington Park in Cheshire.


And after what has been a poor domestic campaign, ensured Nomads secured silverware to end the season on a high.


Parkonians had taken the lead with a push over try from Paul Hillin who added a second.


In the middle of that, Allan Williams added a try and Ben Sadler a conversion but it wasn’t enough.


Douglas completed their debut season in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division One with a 20-20 draw at Wigan.


Two tries from Lance Wylie, one from Daryn Thomson and a conversion and penalty from Bryn Snellgrove sealed the draw.


Although they missed out on promotion, the Manx side can still look back on an encouraging campaign.
