Welcome to Percy Park RFC

Park denied win by determined Huddersfield



Park hosted second placed Huddersfield, and were looking for a return to form after last week’s loss atMichael Birkett driven over for Park's tryMichael Birkett driven over for Park's try Burnage. A couple of changes to the side saw George Lewis move back to scrum half and centre Alex Tilley also moved in one place to fly-half. Jimmy Ponton returned to the back row and Alan Blakey came in to the front row after being unavailable last week.

 The home side started well enough with George Lewis coming close to scoring after a trade mark break through the mid field, only to be judged held up on the try line. 2 penalties from the boot of “man of the match” Toby Davison gave Park a 6 – 0 after 22 minutes. Park had more of the first half territory and possession and when Huddersfield’s skipper Nick Sharpe was sin-binned for back chat to the referee on 23 minutes should have taken advantage of the numerical superiority, but the Yorkshiremen’s gritty defence held firm and they were the ones to score next when fly half Tom Hodson kicked a penalty as Park were penalised for coming into the side of a ruck.

Four try Bradders helps Lions win at home

UBS Candy League 1

Percy Park 46 – 10 Morpeth Reivers


Bradders on the chargeBradders on the chargeWith the 1st XV on their travels to Burnage, the Lions took to the main stage at Preston Avenue, hoping for a return to form following their disappointing defeat at West Hartlepool last week. There were again a number of changes to the side with a couple of late cry off’s and players moving up to the 1st XV which meant that a couple of players from the Pumas had to step up, and step up they did especially in the case of Ian Bradley, who had a storming game at number 8 scoring 4 of the side’s 7 tries in a bonus point win that takes the Lions up to third in the league.

 Gone was the summer sun, and in its place a biting north-easterly wind that kept supporter numbers down, or they chose to support from the warmth of the club house. Park showed their intentions early on with pressure on Morpeth in their 22, which led to a clearance kick being charged down by Michael Grove, who chased up and scored a try on 2 minutes, kicking the conversion to put the side 7 – 0 up.

Park move up to Fourth with bonus point win




Ali Blair scorer of 2 triesAli Blair scorer of 2 triesAnother cracking day for rugby saw Percy Park avenge the home and away defeats to Bradford and Bingley last season. In the end this was a comprehensive bonus point win which takes Park up to 4th place in the league, although few could have guessed the outcome of the game when Bradford prop Ryan Wederell went over for a try with less than a minute played.

 Park came back with a penalty from Simon Greetham before the centre had to leave the field with a dead-leg which saw Stevie Irving come on at scrum half with George Lewis moving to stand off to allow Phil Morse to occupy the centre spot with Ali Blair.

 Percy Park had to make several changes from last week’s team, with both centres Guy Pike and Alex Tilley being forced on the sidelines with injury. With Alan Blakey unavailable Marc Cook came back into the side after recovering from his injury, and a last minute change saw lock Josh Hedley left out of the side as he had been selected for the Falcons Development XV playing on Monday evening.

Pumas win re-arranged game at Meds

Medicals III 0 - 26 Percy Park Pumas

The Pumas were due to play Gateshead III at home, but due to a mix up, ended up without a game until Medicals III stepped in, looking for opposition as their league fixture against Ponteland had been cancelled. Meds III play in the Coquet League, so a mixed Pumas and Marauders side travelled to Heaton.

The 26-0 scoreline does not truly reflect the total dominance Park had in this game. Some old fashioned refereeing combined with a large number of unforced errors prevented Park from strolling to a comfortable half century score.

Exceptionally good kicking to touch from Stephen Baskerville meant any misdemeanour from Medicals was punished with interest.

It took 15 minutes for Park's dominance to shine and it took a Stephen Baskerville kick to touch to start the move which ended with George Carr breaking through to touch down with Baskerville  converting. 7-0

The rest of the first half was made up of Park pressure on the Medical line without any reward .

The second half started off much the same but the pressure never paid off and it took the yellow card for Andrew Steiner to galvanise the team to pick up their game.

Strong running with good hands resulted in Matthew Dale breaking through a number of tackles to score. Baskerville converted.14-0

Constant pressure in defence gave Michael Conn an interception opportunity deciding not to run the full pitch he offloaded to Kieran Sutherland who went in under the posts. Baskerville coverted 21-0.

The final score came from Park losing the line out only for Andy Preston stealing the ball back and going on a storming run, offloading to the backs who with slick handling put Jon Carlisle through to score. Unfortunately the conversion was not successful. 26-0.

Overall a very good performance.
