BURY Broncos Under-10s showed their senior counterparts how it is done, finishing the Portico Vine rugby league festival unbeaten.

The juniors won four and drew one of their matches after going into the tournament on a run of seven games unbeaten in the North West Counties U10s Junior League.

It showed the club, which play their home games at Philips High School in Whitefield, have plenty of young talent coming up through the ranks, which should bode well for the future.

The first team is struggling at present, going down 52-12 at home to Rochdale Mayfield A on Saturday – a fifth defeat of the campaign, which left them seventh in Division Two of the North West Men's League.

Coach Dave Kelly has often been forced to field under-strength teams this season, but if the current crop of u10s remain committed to the club then they should have no such problems in the future.

They put in strong performances against Langworthy, Chorley, Accrington, Chester and hosts Portico during the recent festival.

Their defensive line did brilliantly, with the Broncos only conceding two tries in the whole festival, thanks in part to some last-ditch tackles from Cai Williams, Harrison Veras-Williams, Sam Jackson and Theo Warren.

Forward play was orchestrated well by Nathan Walton, Dan Jenkinson and Matthew Jones, with their vision supplying Jack Healy, Joseph Mountford and Madoc Dwyer in attack as the Broncos registered scores on most sets of possession.
