Dartmouth finish an Amazing season by winning the Devon Junior Cup

DARTMOUTH RFC v TOTNES RFC
Devon Junior Cup Final

Dartmouth win 29 – 11

Dartmouth travelled to North Tawton for their first Devon Junior Cup Final. The venue was to hold
all three Final Competitions, the Plate, Vase and then at 5.00 pm the main event of Dartmouth RFC v
Totnes RFC. Dartmouth were at full strength, and this being a cup competition were able to name a
squad of twenty two. The Saturday afternoon sunshine was strong, with a light breeze blowing down the
pitch from posts to posts.
Dartmouth played with the wind in the first half and as a mark of intent, with only 6 minutes on
the clock, spurned a penalty opportunity and kicked the ball to touch on the Totnes five metre line, where
from the ensuing line out, the ball was caught cleanly and the Dartmouth pack drove over to enable
number eight, Jason Gibbs to touch down, with the conversion added by Luke Chase. The first quarter
of the game was evenly matched but when Dartmouth got into the Totnes twenty two, they made the
most of their chances, and when a Totnes player was yellow carded for a high tackle, Dartmouth scored
again through scrum half Lorien Spurdel, with Chase stroking the ball between the uprights for a 14 - 0
Dartmouth lead.
Dartmouth now made a player change, with Karl Caunter replacing player/coach Tom Clark as a
straight swap on the flank. For the rest of the half, the defences stood firm on both sides, but there was
an exchange of penalties, with Totnes getting the final word to make the score 17 - 6 to Dartmouth at the
break. Dartmouth made two changes at half time, with Richard Lobb replacing Dave Champion at inside
centre and Michael Dei on for Declan Hammond at prop. Playing against the wind, it was Dartmouth who
again scored first, after the Darts pack had set up shop on the Totnes goal line it fell to the scrum half to
power his way over for his brace, with the now on song Chase making sure of the conversion. This was
to be Spurdel's last play as he made way for Jack Clark. Totnes did manage to breach the Dartmouth
defence for one try, but the conversion was missed and that was to be the sum of their effort on the
scoreboard, 24 - 11 to Dartmouth.
As the game entered the last third, winger Ben Peters was concussed, with Luke Bridgwood
coming on to replace him, and then the final riposte from Dartmouth was a try by centre Richard Lobb,
with Chase being unable to finish this time. So for Dartmouth it was veni, vidi, vici with a great
performance from all the lads, to finish off what has been a great season, and all that was left to do was
for Dartmouth's skipper, John Dingle to collect the Cup, a great reward for a player who has given his all
to Dartmouth over the last few years in good times and bad!
The Dartmouth squad that contested and won the cup was; John Dingle(C), Nick Shillabeer,
Declan Hammond, Adam Sharam, Alex Parrott, Ricky Seymour, Tom Clark, Jason Gibbs, Lorien Spurdel,
Luke Chase, Jack Gordon, Dave Champion, Gary Rooney, Ben Peters, Josh Bruckner, Michael Dei, Karl
Caunter, Jack Stirk, Will Lockerbie, Jack Clark, Richard Lobb & Luke Bridgwood.
The season is now finished for the team and the playing side, but there is the DRFC Black Tie Ball
on the evening of Saturday, May 6th, with a few tickets still available at £50 per person, the venue is a
marquee on Coronation Park, with a four course meal, auction and dancing to Filthy Georgeous plus
disco, for what will be a great night and a fitting tribute to the season that Dartmouth have just
concluded. If interested please contact Les Jeffries on 07956 410724.
