Lydney U16's v Ystradgynlais U16's 2017

A charity fixture that produced two winners

There were two winners on this game. Firstly and more importantly the Forest of Dean Food Bank who received 225kg's of food worth £385 and secondly Ystradgynlais RFC
A strong team came to Regentsholme to play under floodlight in what will hopefully be the first of an annual Christmas charity match against local teams.
The fixture brought a record crowd (for the U16's) with a massive donation to the charity.
The game :
Due to the late arrival of the away team the game kicked off at 8.00pm
Ystrad brought a bare 15 and the wind looked like it was behind the Lydney sails,however,who was to know that nearly all were Ospreys Academy :-), 'that's cheeky butt'
Nevertheless the first score was Lydneys within the first 3 minutes with a try from Reilly Scriven
The game was literally end to end and you couldn't have scripted a better game for the many spectators.
Defensively both were outstanding and it's fair to say only a few errors on the Lydney side gave Ystrad the edge and they took advantage on each occasion and put points on the board.
The backs were impressive with Will Green finishing off a well worked move.
Mat Allen made some lovely runs and took big hits but shrugged them off to have a great game
Zac Peacey was on form winning many scrums against the head allowing Evan jones to feed to the backs.
Once again powerful performances from Jack Knox and Reilly Scriven who relentlessly tested the Ystrad defence and Jack Knox got a try for his efforts
A slightly twitchy Ystrad let Sam Stenner over the line in the last seconds of the game but it was not enough to draw level.
A great night with 'ot dogs all round like'

An outstanding Lydney performance
