North 1 East
Dinnington 19 - 28 Percy Park
Following their resounding Northumberland Senior Cup Victory over Berwick Percy Park travelled to Lodge Lane the home of Dinnington RFC for the first North One East league game of the season in high spirits and that feel good factor was transferred onto the pitch as they defeated a robust Dinnington side by 28 points to 19.
Park started the brighter of the two sides taking advantage of the notorious Lodge Lane slope on a warm afternoon that had the Percy Park support stripping off to showcase their new Northumbrian Tartan waistcoats. An attire that brought many an admiring glance as the day progressed. The first score came after 5 minutes from Vice Captain Phil Morse as Park having absorbed the first Dinnington attack broke away in their own 22 and through a series of quick passes,offloads and a clever kick to the corner saw Morse touchdown with fly half Michael Grove converting.
