The curtain comes down

Try fest!

The final D&N1 game of the season saw GRFC facing local rivals, Novocastrians, on yet another chilly day at Broadway West. Gos welcomed back Peter Gillespie for his first game since last September following shoulder surgery.
Playing down wind in the first-half Gosforth took an early lead through their robust prop, kieran porter, following some good work by the forwards. Fly-half, Mark Anderson, converted for a 7-0 lead. Play followed a similar pattern until the 18th minute, when the visitors worked their way upfield culminating in a sniping try by the posts by scrum-half, Christian Selkirk, converted by Greg Humphreyson to level the score at 7-7. The balance was again tipped in Gosforth's favour, when a series of drives ended out wide with the overlapping home full-back, Mat Struthers, crossing in the left-hand corner. Mark Anderson pulled off a magnificent kick to convert the try and leave the score at 14-7 on 21 minutes. Again the pendulum swung back to Novos with centre, Shaun Stewart, showing a fine turn of pace to score a try converted well by Humphreyson. 14-14. Having missed a penalty chance to lead the scoring on 30 minutes, Novos were again torn apart with some smart home passing ending with winger, James Weaver, diving over in the right-hand corner. Mark Anderson again had his kicking boots on with a great conversion to leave the score 21-14 on 37 minutes. From the kick-off home No 8, Adam Barrass, took a good ball, sped 80 metres to within 5 metres of the Novos' line before shipping the ball out wide to our other winger, Owen Ramsey, who crossed in the opposite corner for the bonus point try on 39 minutes. Mark Anderson narrowly failed with this conversion attempt to leave the half-time score at 26-14.
Kicking off the second-half with the breeze at their backs, Gosforth again scored an early try through our converted lock cum centre, Andrew Camplejohn, on 44 minutes. Mark Anderson again converted to leave the score at 33-14. Novos again were not going to be denied a third try of their own through Christian Selkirk, converted by Humphreyson on 58 minutes (33-21). Gosforth kicked off with hooker, Dom Manfredi taking an excellent ball on the run to set the home team up within the visitors' half of the field. From there the backs took over and Joe Morris cut back inside to score by the posts for Mark Anderson to convert on 62 minutes (40-21). Gos were now determined to attempt to score from all parts of the field, but, unfortunately, Jez Nash intercepted to run away to score an unconverted try on 66 minutes (40-26). Another fine passage of attacking rugby with No 8 cum centre, Adam Barrass, to the fore saw the ball transferred out wide to Owen Ramsey, who again crossed in the corner on 69 minutes. Mark Anderson again converted very well (47-26). For the first time in quite a while Gos were to pass the 50 point barrier, when Andy Scott was literally on hand to charge down an attempted clearance by Novos to score by the posts for Mark Anderson to convert (54-26). However, Novos were to play the last card when Sean Ramsay scored the final unconverted try to leave the final score at 54-31.
So the eventful season finally came to an end with the prospect of ventures new for GRFC in D&N2 next season. Enjoy your summer!

It’s our final Kids First Champion for the season! David ‘Flats’ Flatman and two special guests surprise Ellingham & Ringwood RFC.
