By

Big for to finish season off on a high

When Bridgnorth visited Sheffield on the first day of the season with virtually this same squad they just lost a close encounter 18 points to 13.
Today,in perfect playing conditions and with 320 ex Bridgnorth players,having been well fed and entertained in the Clubs luxurious Marquee, cheering them on, put in a great team performance to round of an excellent season.
Kicking off towards the Telford Road end Bridgnorth were penalised at a lineout to give the visitors an early penalty to lead 0-3 Then more pressure from Sheffield secured an unconverted try wide out to increase their lead.
Bridgnorth raised the tempo and with the forwards getting some useful possession Luis Evitt added to his impressive try count to cross and Llew William's conversion put the All-Blacks just a point adrift. Calum Madden received a yellow card but a great lineout take from Jake Goulson allowed Luis Evitt to nip round the front to score. Llew Williams conversion made the score 14 8. Some good runs from Will Bishop,Tim Breakwell and Ryan Smeilus kept Bridgnorth going forward and some quick handling gave Jonah Boyce room to cross,.Llew Williams kick made the halftime score a comfortable 21-8.
With the forwards having done their bit, the backs led by Ted Parker forced his way over to score,then Jordan Burgess with a speedy dodging run, streaked 70 metres down the right wing for a brilliant solo effort.
An unusual yellow card for Gareth Bladen gave Sheffield some hope but a similar brilliant run by Llew Williams to score and converting both tries himself brought the score to 42-8.
In the dying minutes a breakaway by a Stafford back on halfway with 10 metres start on Afea Hasila
was caught just short of the line as the whistle went.
This was a really good team performance by Bridgnorth to round off a great season.
The fantastic try from Jordan Burgess followed by one almost as good, plus kicking everything in sight, made Jordan Burgess and Llew Williams joint Men of the Match
Bridgnorth finish a creditable 5th in the League and as North Midlands Champions have brought
immense pride to their many supporters, all wondering what to do with their Saturdays till September comes round again.?
