NORTHUMBERLAND SENIOR CUP
TYNEDALE RAIDERS 10 – 29 PERCY PARK
Percy Park progressed to the final of the Northumberland Senior Cup and will meet Morpeth at 1pm on Easter Saturday at McCracken Park the home of Northern FC.
Park had the luxury of keeping almost the same squad as last week with the same back line that now seems to be starting to click. Michael Grove opened the Park account with a 4th minute penalty as Tynedale were punished for coming in at the side of a ruck.
All the early pressure came from Percy Park although the hosts, playing at Druid Park today with their own facilities still out of action due to the winter flooding at Corbridge, drew level with a penalty on 17 minutes.
Percy Park responded with a fine try from Toby Davison following a good kick return down the left hand flank. A deft pass from skipper Andy Dunn put fullback Michael Grove into space and he then passed back inside to Davison in support. The Park wing scored under the posts and Michael Grove slotted the conversion to give Park a 10 – 3 lead.
