U15s demolish Witham

Millwall's improving Under 15s team earned another victory this weekend with a 36-5 thrashing of a combined Whitam/Maldon squad.

Liam O'keith, playing his first game for the club scored 2 tries and kicked one conversion in a man of the match performance.

Ever reliable full back Jacob Lajolie also scored two tries, while Daniel Robertson and Joel Murdock scored a try each. Fly half Alfie Duffy kicked the additional conversion in the drubbing.

The Millwall domination started early in the match when Murdock crashed over in the first phase of play. From there, the flood gates opened up almost immediately as the visitors raced to a 22-0 lead.

The home side came out firing in the second half, scoring a try to make it 22-5, but the score proved to be only a temporary lapse in the Millwall defence.

The final result, which ended up with additional points being put on the board to make it
36-5, made head coach Gary McLaughlin extremely proud:

"We've been working extremely hard in training over the last few weeks and it's really starting to show on the pitch"

"Some new players have joined the squad and their fresh input and enthusiasm has rubbed off on the other players as well" said the coach

"we'll have a break now for Christmas but I hope the boys don't have too much turkey as there are 3 matches waiting for us in January and all are very winable!"
