Northumberland County Cup Final
Alnwick RFC 16 v Percy Park 21
Drama to the last in a season full of Drama
(The heat of the battle)
With the exception of the most ardent supporter there were many out there who would never have predicted this result; but what a result it was and what a game it was!!...Percy Park certainly kept their best for last…and it has to be said…. if they had played like this all season instead of scrapping at the bottom we would…and I mean would…. have been challenging at the top. They were that good.
To bring a close to a more than emotional season I would like to thank all who have followed this column on our web site and in the local press….It has been dramatic and for those who have been unable to attend games I hope I might have captured some of the drama for you…. I have enjoyed your feedback and banter throughout the season …however for the record I can now say, after this performance…no I am not a raving lunatic!!... This performance has been coming all year…on our travels many have stated that we are one of the better sides in North One East and they weren’t wrong…it’s just a shame that it’s taken all season to show it but…..there is always next season!!......so ‘Come on Park’…belief runs strong on Preston Avenue.
The first half kicked off at a blistering pace with half back pairing Jimmy Baldwin and Richard Chadwick dictating the rhythm of the game. With clever short passes and players running onto him Chadwick had the ‘big guns’ flying into the Alnwick half and punching holes in their defence. Alnwick were clinging on and it was no surprise when Park, having fixed the defence, sent the ball wide for centre Seb Reece to score the first try of the game.
