Dukinfield dash Nomads’ Cheshire hopes
Southern Nomads’ five season run in the Cheshire County competitions came to a shuddering halt at King William’s College when they lost out 20-3 to Dukinfieldin the Cheshire Bowl semi-final.
After an impressive start, Nomads took the lead through a Mark Young penalty in the ninth minute.
Gaz Callan pulled one back to level the scores 10 minutes later and a penalty try late in the half, which Callan converted, gave Dukinfield a 10-3 lead at the break.
After beating off a Nomads second half fightback, Dukinfield edged further in front with Callan’s second penalty of the game and, with five minutes to play, they killed off any faint Nomad hopes when tight head prop Dermot Nolan finished off a catch and drive lineout with a try which Callan once more converted.
