IT WAS men against Boys ... literally.
The grizzled veterans of the Horden Third XV, more than one on the ‘wrong’ side of 40, met the invincible Boys Brigade Old Boys in the Pyman Shield final at Welfare Park.
The Hartlepool club had won all 22 matches in winning Durham Northumberland Three.
But they met their match in the cup, Horden comoing out on top 20-12.
