Today Acklam extend a warm welcome to Gateshead R U F C. After a poor start to the season Gateshead appear to have turned things around. Loosing their first three games to Westoe, Stockton and Ponteland they then registered wins in their last two games against Whitby and Barnard Castle. Acklam however started well with a thumping win against Whitby but recently have found victories difficult to come by. Last Saturdays heavy defeat against a very good Durham side showed a stubborn quality we have not seen in a Acklam side for a while, with ten minutes to go and 70 points down, the very young team that we had out that day refused to lay down, and produced an excellent finale by securing two tries in the last ten minutes to secure a losing bonus point.
Whilst Acklam are still a few players short of a full strength side, today we welcome “Abo” and Jordan back in to the team and hope they
can help to reverse the current trend of results. On the other hand the Talbots are doing reasonably well, and all credit to Ralphy and his boys who travelled to Darlington last Saturday with 12 players. Today they play Guisborough helped by the fact there is no Talbots game. A big “Well done”to all the captains and coaches, who are keeping things going in difficult times whilst so many players are unavailable. Many thanks Steve Elsworth President.
