1XV vs Enfield Ignations 12 – 32

Stockwood Park’s struggle to come to terms with the competition faced in London 2 NW following their league promotion this season from Midlands 3 SE continued on Saturday against Enfield Ignations,  a Club just above them in the league table and a match which Park could reasonably have expected to be close.

However after a competitive and evenly matched first half, Park conceded a third converted try just prior to halftime and went into the break 19-7 down.

In the second half the home team upped their intensity, were more competitive to the 50/50 balls, took advantage of some scrappy Park lineout  and left Park to face another defeat.

Enfield scored early to go 7-0 ahead before an always competitive Martin Rowe burst through in the centre to score a try under the posts, converted by Matt Jones. The game remained evenly poised despite a second try for the home team to go 12-7 ahead and until their try on halftime took them clear.

In the second half right wing Kyran Ryan took advantage of some good work by Rowe and scrum half Alex Lovell to score wideout before the home team secured their 33-12 victory with two further converted trys.

For Park, Hooker Tom Childs, prop Justin Harkin and Skipper Jamie Hoque were prominent in the forwards while Martin Rowe and Alex Lovell were the best of the backs.

This Saturday Park entertain Hammersmith RFC who are currently top of the table . The match will be preceded by a Former Players Lunch where 100 ex Players are due to attend
