Winnington Park 4 Springfields UCLAN 1
WINNINGTON returned to winning ways at Sir John Deane’s College on Saturday .
They were forced to reshuffle their pack for the game with Mark Whalley deputising for Mark Leigh in the heart of the defence.
On 20 minutes, Peter Evans opened his account for the season after receiving the ball from Dan Jones and slotting home.
Flying winger Steve Campagnaro then doubled Park’s lead by steering home Simon Livingstone’s penalty corner.
After the break, the hosts were given a wake-up call when Springfields, from the University of Central Lancashire, scored from a short corner.
But Park focused and made sure of the points when Livingstone scored direct from a penalty and then Evans sealed his brace by forcing the ball home after a swift counter attack.
Park travel to Wrexham on Saturday (1.45pm start).
