Welcome to Percy Park RFC

Spectacular Lions second half comeback



 Skipper Jonny DuboisSkipper Jonny DuboisA blistering second half sealed victory for the Lions as they scored 36 unanswered points to inflict the first league defeat of the season against leaders Darlington Mowden Park II. Park were down in the first 3 minutes when Mowden scored a converted try. Inside 12 minutes the home side went further behind when a clearance kick from the 22 was charged down and signs looked ominous at 0 – 14. When Percy Park conceded another converted try and were behind by 21 points things looked bleaker and it seemed as though the boys in black and white were in for a tough day at the office.

 Then on 28 minutes an inspirational solo try by skipper Jonny Dubois gave his side hope that they could stem the flow of points and hit back

 Mowden responded almost immediately with another converted try to give them an early bonus point and with time ebbing away in the first half, Park were awarded a scrummage in Darlington territory. A number 8 pick up by Jack Davison and a pass to scrum half Stevie Irving set play away down the left hand flank and Oscar Pritchard receive the try scoring pass to go over the line for an unconverted try. The half time whistle went and Park were down 12 – 28 and the supporters could have no perception as to how the tide would turn and Mowden capitulate so spectacularly.

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.
