Bridgnorth celebrated a superb season with a sparkling performance against a young Hereford team with every team member peforming their individual roles skilfully..The pitch, in immaculate condition, encouraged some exciting handling, causing the visitors to defend doggedly as Bridgnorth shifted the ball the full width of the pitch and giving Sam Alvey the space to show his speed. Bridgnorth did give away a flurry of penalties but the visitors were unable to capitalise on the mistakes

Sam Alvey, following up a good kick from Simon Fletcher, not only scragged the catcher as he offloaded, but got up quickly to catch the second player in possession.

Just on 18 minutes a classic backs move across the field and back, saw Will Crossley smash his way over to open the scoring.

Five minutes later in a copycat move with exactly the same result Crossley scored again. Will Biddell converted both to make the score 14-0

Some skullguggery gave Tim Testtube 10 minutes rest and Adam Sterling came on for Ryan Smeilus to continue the forward domination. Another strong scrum found Gareth Bladen bursting through for 20 metres, generously giving the scoring pass to Alvey who touched down from a great high dive in true Ashtonesque style. The on form Bridgnorth full back made the half time score 21-0

Hereford did make a strong attack which flustered the Bridgnorth defence but the visitors at last conceded a penalty to give the All-Blacks relief.

New boy Matt Masters looks a good prospect and with Craig Thomas added their energy to the visitors problems. Together they helped Jamie Ramsey cross. Then a quick break from Masters gave Ed John the honour,

Masters then made a great run to claim his first try for the team. Will Biddell made his tally 100% with a great conversion and a score of 40-0

Skipper Griffiths had promised a great game to end the season and the big crowd gathered to see him collect the Promotion award

All the team played exceptionally well, with Matt Masters outstanding, but the popular choice for Black Horse Man of the Match went to Will Crossley, not only for two tries in this match, but for a whole season of exciting, bulldozer charges .
Unfortunately this was his last game for Bridgnorth as he leaves for a teaching position in the Middle East.
Thanks, Will, the whole Club wishes you well.
