COACH Dave Kelly believes there is more to come from his Bury Broncos A side after they beat league leaders Chester Gladiators 33-20 at the Paddock on Saturday.

The visitors knew a win would hand them the North West Division Four title but the home side were looking for revenge following a heavy defeat earlier in the season.

The Broncos were on top from the start and led 4-0 when Sean Kelly's throw sent Kieron Marshall in at the corner.

The hosts increased their advantage to 10-0 when Danny Kelly dummied his way over for a try, which was converted by Steve Critchley.

A one-pointer from a well-taken Anthony Crumlish effort made it 11-0 but some slack work at marker allowed the Chester hooker to score, 11-4.

Winger Jonathan Tindale pounced on a ball and sped over under the sticks with Critchley again adding the extras as Broncos increased their lead further. But Chester capitalised on errors and scored two penalties to reduce the half time lead to 17-10.

The visitors started the better in the second period, reducing the arrears to 17-16. But an outstanding individual effort from Crumlish saw him break three tackles to score. Critchley was successful with the conversion as the Broncos led 23-16.

Chester battled hard to get back in the game and controversially reduced the arrears to 23-20 with Kelly also sinbinned for dissent with eight minutes remaining.

Critchley muscled his way over from short range and kicked the conversion to make it 29-20 before Tindale spun out of a tackle, beat the last man, and touched down the final score.

Following some outstanding performances from Liam Owen, Mike Carter, Paul Bretherton, captain Paul Kynaston and Joe Wilkinson, Kelly selected Crumlish, Tindale and Jono Taylor for special praise and added: "There are some talented players at this club, most of whom are still very young, as shown in this game. There is plenty of potential for the future."

Bury Broncos' first team travel to Division Two leaders Orrell St James in their penultimate game of the season on Saturday, while the A team play their final game at fourth-placed Garswood Stags.
