Longton Rugby captain George Glenn says he’s confident ahead of Longton’s local derby against Sandbach this weekend.

Going back to October of last year, Sandbach ran out 72-0 winners against Longton, and Glenn believes that his side are in a good place to improve on that result on Saturday.


Longton lost 31-3in their latest National League 3 Midlands encounter and were outplayed by promotion chasing Hinckley Town, who ran in five tries.

Hinckley scored twice in the first half through Rich Harris and Joe Glover. They then scored three more tries in the second half, first through prop David Peck, next from a penalty try and finally Harris scored for his second try of the match.
