OLD SENIOR YOUTH 2017-18 - Match centre

Dronfield
Newark Colts
Sat 14 Apr 14:45 - Friendly Full time

Second half slope made all the difference!

It was a special day for coaches


In the first transition game of the season, where 10 Colts play alongside 5 Vets, Newark ran out comfortable winners scoring 7 tries to 3.

Turning round at half time with one try a piece, the significant slope at Dronfield was always going to play into Newark’s hands - and so it proved! A combination of excellent backs play along with some impressive ‘grunt’ up front and a willingness to do the hard yards, the Newark Colts were just too strong for their counterparts. James Harding continued his impressive run off form and was a constant threat through the middle, bagging himself 2 tries. Jacob Pearson and Dan Godfrey showed the forwards were not to be outdone, especially the rampaging Pearson who crossed over for 3 tries.

It was a special day for coaches Adam Doran and Jamie Matts who played alongside four of the lads they’ve coached from Under 7’s to Colts over the last 11 years.

Thanks to Martin Brown (whose kick off receipt will live long in the memory) and all the Vets who played to ensure this fixture could go ahead.
