Welcome to Percy Park RFC

Park move up to Fourth with bonus point win

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

PERCY PARK 45 – 15 BRADFORD & BINGLEY

 

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.

Bonus point win in Tyne Tees derby

SSE NATIONAL 3 NORTH

BILLINGHAM 20 – 32 PERCY PARK

 

Club Captain - Michael LanglandsClub Captain - Michael LanglandsSkipper Michael Langlands secured a bonus point win with Park’s fourth try of the game to win this Tyne Tees derby at Greenwood Road Billingham. Both teams had to make late changes to the sides shown in the match day program with Sean Williamson coming into the side for James Ponton, who sustained an injury during midweek training. Percy Park stayed mainly with the side that had beaten Beverley the previous week, with the exception of Stu Cannon and Marc Cook who were both ruled out with injury. Alan Blakey returned at tight-head prop and Michael Langlands moved to openside.

 The game kicked off in perfect conditions if not a bit warm for the players, and Park kicked off down the slope with the sun in their eyes. After only a couple of minutes had elapsed Stu Findlay had to leave the field after tackling his opposite number into touch, and Park brought on scrum half Jimmy Baldwin to the left wing.

North Tyne Festival

North Tyneside Festival of Rugby.

 

On Sunday 6th October Percy Park Rugby Football Club will once again host the North Tyneside Festival of Rugby.

 In partnership with Northumberland Rugby Union and with support from Newcastle Falcons, Percy Park have attracted 906 children aged from 6 to 10 years old, to play in the opening Festival of the Season.

 The Festival of Rugby is an inclusive event aimed at helping children with the new laws of Rugby and it also allows cross county coaches to share ideas and training plans which will help develop the children going forward.

 This year we have 115 teams entered across the 5 age group and will see Percy Park arrange and execute 220 fixtures on 26 pitches over 4 hours.

 This year we have seen a huge increase in the number of clubs participating across all age groups, with teams travelling from as far north as Alnwick and west from Carlisle.

 The main thrust of the event is for all children to have loads of FUN and for everyone to ENJOY themselves.

 Under the “New Rules of Play”, we won’t have an overall winner, as there are no cups or trophies to be awarded at the end of the day.

 All children taking part will be fed by Percy Park and all the children will receive commemorative medals.

 Doors open for this year’s North Tyneside Festival at 09:00 hrs on 6th Oct, with the first fixtures starting at 10:30hrs.

 All members at Percy Park RFC have rallied with support, which ought to make the day extremely enjoyable and memorable.

 If any child wishes to consider “giving rugby a try”, parents can visit the club website www.percyparkrfc.co.uk or ring Glenn Forster on 07812 834089.
