Poor first half showing costs Uxbridge dear against Finsbury Park

Uxbridge succumb to defeat at home to Finsbury Park after bad day at the office.

Uxbridge came into this game looking to end the season on a high after a couple of recent defeats but encouraging signs of progress to build on and take into next year. Finsbury Park came into the game looking to keep the heat on Thamesians in the race for the title.

Before the game kicked off there was a minute silence for Mark Davey who recently passed away. Mark a long-standing player, served as Treasurer, and friend to many at the club and beyond, and will be greatly missed. Both sides would like to send their condolences to Mark’s family.

The first half was a largely forgettable affair for the home side as Sean McAndrew succumbed to injury and Finsbury broke out their expansive game from the off, running hard in the centre of the park and looking to put their pacey wide players into space on the flanks. This paid dividends as a combination of errors and good play saw them take a healthy five try lead into half time. Play was disjointed and Uxbridge were unable to create the phases and pressure to threaten the Finsbury Park line.

A not angry just disappointed coach Ron Matthews pulled everyone in at half time and laid down the law for the second half.

This whirred the home side into action with the defence much more robust and attack more threatening, Uxbridge managed to constrict the visitors free flowing play and get a foothold in the game. A superb kick from Matt Cowper found the Finsbury Park five metre line and following several phases of a clean lineout, second row Mark Coles scored one of the finest tries ever seen at Gatting Way (okay…a small lie-it was from a three yards out) to get the home-side on the board. Centre, Tom Rainey on kicking duty for the day, added the extras.

Finsbury Park replied in kind with two tries of their own before Uxbridge found themselves in a similar position to the first and the svelte Matt Coker (again...another lie) barged his way over the line from close range to dot down.

Finsbury returned fire again with a try of their own before more good work in the forwards and commanding from Ollie Seward, saw skipper Jake Lamport power his way over the line and record Uxbridge’s third of the day. Sadly, the kick was missed.

Finsbury Park just had time to add another couple of well worked tries to their tally before the referee called time, with the game ending 66-17 to the visitors.

All in all a game to forget for Uxbridge with the team returning to action in two weeks (Saturday 7 April) away to Haringey Rhino’s (kick-off 15:00).

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