With Uxbridge's fate already sealed after their comfortable win over Old Grammerians, there was a big emphasis to finish this good season off with a bang. However that would not be the case.
Uxbridge travelled to lower placed Pinner on saturday hoping for another good win after easily beating Pinner on the openeing day of the season.
From the off, Pinner looked in control and a well structured side and very much up for this encounter. Both teams would not have changed their league positions with a win and this showeed through lazy defending and silly errors whilst attacking.
After early pressure, Pinner eventually broke the deadlock with a well worked try in the corner after sloppy defending from Uxbridge which wasn't coverted.
Uxbridge managed to put some good phases together but again, forced silly errors and Pinner repelled all the attacks.
After some sloppy ball, Tom Redup popped up from a short pass and crashed over the line for Uxbridge's first score converted by Mickey Weymouth
Pinner added to their lead through another cheap score and a penalty making the half time score 12-7.
Pinner once more looked the stronger side and crossed over twice more looking to half finished off the game.
After some substitutions and a reshuffle in the back line, in form Jamie Dack
popped up from scrumhalf to touch down under the posts to put Uxbridge back in with a shout. Weymouth again converted.
Pinner then further increased the margin after an intercept pass that all supporters on the side saw coming.
Weymouth added a late penalty to top up the Uxbridge score, but Pinner eventually ran out deserved winners at 32-17.
Uxbridge celebrate their End of Season Awards night next saturday and hopefully a friendly club game will be arranged also.
Uxbridge have come on leaps and bounds this year thanks to Marc Sweeney
in his first season coaching at the club, and the atmosphere has once again risen over the Uxbridge club house with more players joining and more banter about the place. Uxbridge feel they stand in strong stead to puch fro promotion next year with the likes of Quintin and Chess Valley looking to come up from the league below.
