Frampton victorious at St Mary's

A new season for Frampton colts began on Thursday as they went a few miles from home to local rivals St Marys . Billed as a friendly trial , it was nothing of the sort as both sides tore into one another showing how much the rugby had been missed over the summer months . This season Fram colts have a new coaching management set up as Mike Weaver takes over as Director of Rugby -Strategy and Development , ably assisted by Mark Smith as Forwards guru , Dave Crewe as medical / conditioning coach and Helen Smith as Kit / Logistics / Mini bus driver .

Zak Smith has also been appointed as captain for the season and he has spent the summer contacting and promoting the coming season to the players . Great to see returning players Kinan Qumar , Morgan Lewis , Joe Uren ,plus newcomer from Aretians Luke Slade .

It seemed the Reading festival and Results day would weaken Frampton’s side but that was not the case . Frampton’s pack is really strong this season and there is real pace and strength in the backs – ready to be unleashed .

In the first period Frampton scored following an excellent strong scrummage , the ball went loose and returning fly half Aaron Holman impressed his many female supporters on the touchline by hacking through and scoring by the posts . Ryan ‘ The Loon’ Giddings was leading Frampton from the front , getting involved in everything , and the tremendous Dec Grimstead seemed to be putting tackles in everywhere .

The second period saw Frampton go further ahead as Giddings pounced on the full back , kicked through and scored by the posts . This was followed up by another try as Dec Grimstead stole the ball on a turnover and raced away to secure the match for Fram .

The final period st marys scored a deserved try as the constant tackling by Fram near the goal line took its toll.

Frampton team :- Morgan Lewis , Lewis Chadwick , Dan ‘Brizzley’ Harris , Liam Plant , Mike Holden , Aaron Holman , Ryan Giddings , James Barnes , Dan ‘The Keg ‘Wiltshire , Kinan Qumar , Pete Wrighton , Luke Coltman , Dan Harvey , Jimmer Merrick , Dec Grimstead , Zak Smith , Joe Uren , Charlie Willis , Luke Slade .

Onwards and upwards …. First league game Cheddar 24/9/16
