Lester back full force

Chorley 12-48 Haven
By Marra
Date: 7/4/02

After absence due another injury to his hand Aaron Lester showed his old dynamism was as strong as ever by running in four tries in this National Cup fixture that laid the ghost of a previous Chorley embarrasment.

He was supported as usual by playmaker Leroy Joe and by the reliable boot of Steve Kirkbride in slotting home eight conversions.The big newcomer Stevens kept up his excellent power play and the Haven defences left Chorley trapped in their own half for much of the play.
Wes Wilson was put out of action by a shoulder dislocation in the first half. The match also saw the return of popular David Fatialofa, absent with his knee injury for 12 months.

Summary: Tries; Lester (4), Wes Wilson, Mark Cox, Leigh Smith and Mark Wallace. Kicks from Steve Kirbride (8)

Haven: Wilson, Wallace, Seeds, Hill, Hutton, Joe, Kirkbride, Cunningham, Jackson, Stevens, Vaughan, Morton, Lester, subs (alla used) Smith, Devlin, Cox, Fatialofa.
