Spence: Myton Warriors will bounce back from Grand Final defeat to Wath Brow Hornets
MYTON Warriors' coach Tony Spence insists his side will bounce back from their 22-6 National Conference Premier Division Grand Final defeat to Wath Brow Hornets.
The Warriors reached the final thanks to a run of nail-biting play-off victories in their first top-flight season.
Minor Premiers Hornets proved a bridge too far, but Spence feels Myton will be better for their experience.
"This isn't the end for us, it is only the beginning," said Spence.

"The whole squad's attitude has been brilliant.
"We have had a fantastic journey and one the lads will never forget.
"Let's not forget we had players like Chris Wainman, Carl Booth, Mark Spence and Marc Donally missing for the whole of the play-offs and the final and those players have been massive throughout the season.
"It's been a great ride, it's just a shame we couldn't bring the cup home to Hull, but there is always next year and I can't wait."
Warriors fell 6-0 behind early on, but levelled to go in at half-time at 6-6.
However, Wath Brow pushed on in the second half, to leave Warriors gallant losers.
Spence concluded: "The game seemed to go so fast as I thought it would but in the end we just didn't convert chances, it's as simple as that.
"We had Wath Brow pinned in their half for long spells throughout the game but didn't take our opportunities and finish off our set plays.
"They did and were more clinical with the ball, and credit to them for doing so.
"I thought we were the fitter side throughout, but towards the end it was the scoreboard that tired us and we had a mountain to climb at 20-6.
"Eight points, ten points, we can fight back from that, we've proved it, but when it got to 16, heads sank and in a final it is too much for anybody."
