First Away Game of the Season
Away at Chesterfield
First game of the season was away to Chesterfield. Pre season training had gone well in warm dry conditions so it was typical the first match should be cold and very wet!
The team adapted well to the conditions and took an early lead, but lost concentration and allowed Chesterfield back into the game and the lead.
Chesterfield kept the lead until Dronfield gathered themselves and started to play the game in the opposition half, with a Man of the match performance from Archie driving the boys forward with powerful running over the gain line and disrupting the opposition play at the ruck.
4 new players for Dronfield played well and have settled in well to the team, with both Charlie and Taylor getting a try (the latter against his former team!)
Strong tackling and pressuring the opposition, being first to the ball and using the whole pitch for same great attacking play, set the basis for the turnaround and Dronfield ended up winning 6-4 in a closely contested game.
