MERSEYSIDE Police are appealing for witnesses to a robbery in which an 11 year old boy from Huyton had a small amount of money taken by a man.

 The Sandstormers have a near win.

SOUTHPORT Rugby League Team lost their second game of the season going down 24-18 against Rochdale Mayfield in a very close game at Waterloo Road on Saturday. Southport started off badly with handling errors and lots of mistakes which allowed Rochdale to take an early lead with a try in the corner. The Sandstormers then came to life and following some good running from Chris Brown and Chris Dresher the ball was passed down the line to send Robbie Fawcett race in at the corner, the try was converted by Kevin Hall. Rochdale came bouncing back and scored another try to lead 10 to 6, but the end to end rugby continued and Southport were attacking the Rochdale line with Danny Sinclair and Steve Tobin trying everything they could to get Southport in front again. Despite going close and with the efforts from Frank Dunn, Neil Newton and Mike Hornby, the Sandstormers were denied and went in 10 to 6 down at half time. The second half continued in the same vain with exciting end to end rugby and Southport then took the lead after good passing again sent Robbie Fawcett over for his second try of the afternoon again this was converted by Kevin Hall. Southport now led 12 to 10, but back came Rochdale with a try of their own to lead 16 to 12. Rochdale were then given a penalty and Rochdale then led 18 to 12. Again back back came the Sandstormers with the best try of the afternoon, center, Chris Dresher, collected a Rochdale kick deep inside his own half and with blistering pace went racing past four Rochdale defenders and then he ran seventy yards to scored a great try. This was again converted by Kevin Hall and both sides continued to attack each others line, but with no success and with the game looking like it was heading for a draw, with only two minutes left, Rochdale were given a penalty and they attacked the Southport line. With less than a minute left they went over for a try from the most blatant of forward passes, but despite protests from the Southport players the try stood to give Rochdale the victory.
