Tupton V Amber Valley
Sunday 15th October 2017
U14/15 v Amber Valley
Arrived at a drizzly, yet calm club house this morning to find all the wonderful coaches organising the lads for a pre-match warm up against Amber Valley. Jack and Vera once again in their element! Vera aka Shaun saying “we can do this, we can beat them!” Oops! Jack aka Bob was acting referee for the morning, and I must say......”immaculately turned out“ (his own words) looking rather on the “bright side” and ready as always to lead our team to victory...... more like escape! Lol
Within three minutes of play, Amber Valley scored there first try and successfully got the conversion also. BUT THEN....... the sun came out, giving our lads the extra boost we needed, allowing Josh Grocutt to score the first try for Tupton! Unfortunately Amber Valley took control of the game, even though for the first 15 minuets, Tupton seemed to have more possession of the ball. To everyone’s delight a second try was gained by the outstanding Joe Crook , but unfortunately half time was called leaving Tupton behind to a score of 10-25. In the second half we saw an impressive tackle by Tom Dyson a fantastic clear run forward from No12 James Collins, a great tackle from Harrison Shipp and a pat on the back has to go out for the scrum lads, who kept low and formed extremely good scrums. The final score was 19-59 to Amber Valley.
The boys ARE playing a better game and deserve to be praised even though a loss was obtained.
Great big thank you to all the coaches and parents for your continued support!
On a positive...... the sun came out and my Yorkshire Puddings were a success!
