Welcome to Percy Park RFC

Happy New Year

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

PERCY PARK 40 – 24 BILLINGHAM

Percy Park stopped their run of consecutive defeats with a second half 33 point haul for a bonus point win in the Tyne Tees derby against Billingham. Park had won the reverse fixture earlier in the season and were looking for the double to kick start the second half of the season to secure National League rugby for next season.

 Park welcomed back Ali Blair and Josh Hedley both having been out for some time with injury. Billingham’s band of brothers were restricted to just 2 Evans with neither Shepherds nor Hyndmans in the squad.

 The game started with floodlights on early against the gloom although the fluorescent yellow Billingham kit was bright enough to save Park’s electricity bill. The promised rain did not materialise which allowed both sides to play some free flowing rugby in a game which had 10 tries.

Boxing Day try fest

PERCY PARK 67 – 0 WHITLEY BAY ROCKCLIFF

Both clubs decided to rest 1st XV players for the annual Boxing Day clash, which this year was staged at Preston Avenue. Rockcliff had more 1st teamers watching the game in the bar than they had on the pitch, as coach Jack Lambert made it plain that his priority was winning Durham & Northumberland 2, rather than maintaining tradition, much to the chagrin of many of the supporters.

Park fielded a mainly Lions XV with some 1st XV players in the starting pack and a couple on the bench. Rockcliff did not reveal their team selection until and hour before kick off and in the end fielded a mixed bag of Ist XV, Vikings, Rangers, guests. Some of the travelling supporters felt that a full Rock 1st XV would have benefitted by testing themselves against a strong side, but that was not to be as Park ran in 11 unanswered tries.

1st XV suffer 4th successive league defeat

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

STOCKPORT 39 – 6 PERCY PARK

Park slipped to 10th in the league after a fourth successive defeat, this time at the hands of Stockport.Andy Dunn on the chargeAndy Dunn on the charge The team and small band of supporters made the 155 mile trip to The Memorial Ground, Headlands Road in good spirits but knowing they had a tough game ahead against a side that had come down from National 2 last season.

 Once against coaches Walder and Mitcalf were unable to select the same side with further injuries and unavailability dogging the squad. Simon Greetham came into the team at inside centre with Alex Tilley at fly half for the unavailable George Lewis. Andy Dunn manfully moved across one place in the front row to tight head to accommodate Jonny Dubois, and with Ben Wilkinson on the bench Park’s squad had 3 hookers. Ethan Wilson came into the back row after injury and Rob Clymer made his 1st XV debut moving up from the Lions to start on the bench.

Popp takes the fizz out of Park

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

PERCY PARK 16 – 25 WESTOE

 

In the over warn cliché Percy Park won the second half, and taking the positives from the game could have sneaked a win with a converted try at the end, but Westoe to their credit defended a 22 – 0 first half lead even if for a spell it was “ squeaky bum time” for their supporters.

 The South Shields outfit went into an early lead as Park failed to secure the kick off, and from an overthrown line-out secured the ball which eventually found the hands of Samoan International Lome Fa’atau to cross with a minute on the watch.

 The gloomy but dry weather seemed to have permeated Park’s mood as they were unable to break out of their half, and when a clearance kick was charged down by their mobile lighthouse that was centre Chas Popp, he reclaimed the ball to cross under the posts for a try converted by fly half Mellish for 12 – 0 after just 6 minutes.

1st XV lose at home

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

PERCY PARK 21 – 33 SANDAL

 You can’t give a side a 25 point head start and expect to get anything out of the game, and so it proved for Park v Sandal. The visitors started with far more vim and vigour and scored their first try after only 3 minutes when skipper Max Whittingham crossed the line for Sandal. Ian Jackson hit the post with his conversion attempt.

 The visitors had most of the possession in the first 10 minutes as Percy Park tried to extract themselves from the Sandal stranglehold and get out of their own half. A great break by Guy Pike gave Park a glimpse of the line, but forwards going off their feet at the break down took the pressure off as Park were penalised.

 Referee James Brown was hot on players sealing off at the breakdown, and Park were punished several times before a team warning resulted as Ian Jackson kicked a penalty to take his side 8 points ahead. Less than 2 minutes later centre Elliot Munnelly scored a try for the Wakefield side which Jackson converted, and Park were down 0 -15.
