Burton inspires Clee to big win
CLEE got back to winnings ways at Horncastle in Midlands 4 East (North) – steam rolling their opposition 56-23.
The visitors started slowly, although they were the first on the score sheet.
Scott Brown scored after some good scrummaging by the forwards and Dan McDaid waltzed through the defence to touch down under the posts.
Horncastle hit back with two tries and a penalty, giving them a 15-14 lead.

This sparked Cleethorpes into life. Firstly, after some strong running from Adam Fanthorpe, the ball was recycled well to Pete Southwell, who sent Steven Broderick in under the posts.
It was then Michael Burton's, pictured, turn to get on the scoresheet. Again, Cleethorpes' dominant pack set the platform for the backs to work from. After several phases of backs play, the ball came inside to Burton who crashed through to score.
This left the half-time score at 28-14 in Cleethorpes' favour.
The second half was similar, although Clee only conceded one try and a penalty.
The visiting scrum began to dominate, and with Fanthorpe taking several against the head, it seemed that Cleethorpes were never without the ball.
Burton again got himself on the scoresheet, followed by two close range efforts from Sean Ward and John Marris.
It was then the turn of the backs, with Adam Goodwin getting a well-deserved try.
The final try of the day went to winger Aaron Smith, who stepped off his wing to finish well.
Cleethorpes can be pleased with how they finished the game, but know the hard work must carry on.
They host Chesterfield in the league on Saturday (3pm), with team training tonight from 6.30pm at Lucarlys.
