Portadown Under 21s welcomed Enniskillen to Chamber’s Park for their first game since the Return to Rugby post-lockdown. After 2 weeks of training with 1st XV coaches Mark Neilly, Andrew Chambers and Barry Gribben, a squad of 30 players took to the field on Saturday for a game of 4 x 20 minute quarters.
Portadown played well in spells, with the team still gelling with experienced Senior Squad players, promoted Under 18s and returning ex-players all getting game time. A great mix of attacking presence, matched with a great defensive mentality ensured that Portadown overcame Enniskillen 27 points to 26.
