Stockwood Park 1XV 36 Bedford Queens 1XV 23

Stockwood Park completed their league season with a victory over Bedford Queens by 36-23 in an entertaining game played under floodlights and in front of a good crowd.  It was only in the last 10 minutes that Park drew clear to secure a deserved win in which they scored five excellent tries. Bedford Queens played their full part in the entertainment and kept the pressure on Park until near the end.

Park were on the attack from the start and before Queens could touch the ball had scored their first try through their excellent loose head Prop Justin Harkin, once again in support of a flowing team move. Centre Brandon Lewsey added the extras.  Queens soon responded with their own converted try and two penalties to move into a 13-7 lead.  Park were soon back on the attack and the next score came from No 8 Ben Griffin, a problem for the Queens defence throughout, who barged over for a try which Lewsey converted.  Lewsey then added a Penalty before Ben Griffin added his second try for Lewsey to convert and give Park a 24 -16 halftime lead.

The second half saw both sides attacking at all opportunities and it was Queens who set up an exciting finish as they scored a converted try to take the match score to 24-23 to Park.   With 5 minutes left a powerful forward drive saw Hooker Tom Childs driven over to make it 29-23 before Brandon Lewsey, who had an excellent game in the Centre latched onto a well-placed kick from Fly Half James Hankey to score under the posts. Lewsey, who scored 14 points in the game, injured himself in the act of scoring the final try and the extras were added by scrum half Alex Lovell.

After a mixed bag of a League season, Park have now completed their last two league fixtures with excellent victories which will give renewed optimism for the future. Their Skipper for the last 5 years, Jamie Hoque, is now standing down. Hoque has been an inspirational figure and although beset by numerous personal injuries which have limited his playing appearances, he has never wavered in his commitment to the 1st xv and the Club, and can look back with pride on his time as Captain.

Colts close in style – with match footage

The Colts closed their season on a high with both the opposition and Colts showing what rugby is about. When an opposition travels for over an hour, knowing they only have 13 players, you know they are keen!

In true rugby spirit players were loaned, jerseys were swapped, insults traded between players that were suddenly no longer team mates and we were off!

Through the game the opposition had at times 4 Park players doing duty for them, and dammit! – they were a nuisance – knowing and taking in great delight in outing our line out and backline moves to the opposition!

A game played in great spirit, but Park proved to be too strong at the breakdown cleaning out the opposition on almost every occasion. With Shepherd Zulu scoring the opening try in minutes from the start and with the dry sunny conditions, Parks backs made good use of the conditions and, fed lots of ball from the breakdown, unleashed attack after attack on the Wheatley defence.

With Park also dominating in the scrum and line out the balance of possession went to Park and this was put to good use with a 37-0 result at the final whistle, in this the last Colts game for this team.

Onwards to next season and senior rugby lads!

Stockwood Park 1XV 43 Daventry 1XV 10

This was not only a very impressive team performance and a conclusive victory for Stockwood Park on their last home league Saturday fixture of the season, but it was also a performance which gave huge encouragement for next season. Individually there was a star first half display from ex Colt left wing Kyran Ryan who scored 3 fine tries before halftime. There was also the sight of Park’s long term injured backrow forwards of No 8 Ben Griffin, former skipper and No 6, Michael Powell, and current skipper and No 7 Jamie Hoque playing together as a unit for only the first time this season and how influential they were on this result.  Also, there was a welcome return to form and fitness of Scrum Half Alex Lovell who came on at halftime and who adds strength to the Park Squad.

Park started in a hurry and were soon 10-0 up from the first two of Kyran Ryan’s tries, both showing the winger’s pace when he obtained space.  Daventry then came back into the game, scoring two tries with their heavy forwards causing some pressure on Park’s pack.  Park then took a useful lead before halftime when Ryan latched onto an interception to score his and the team’s third try. Brandon Lewsey added the extras to give Park a 17-10 lead at halftime.

The first 20 minutes of the second half Park were in full command scoring three further tries through Skipper Jamie Hoque, outstanding throughout, Centre Brandon Lewsey, maintaining his excellent try scoring rate and Hooker Tom Childs. Lewsey added the extras for two of the tries to take Park’s lead to 36-10. Park’s final try was scored by Jack Brooks and converted by Lewsey to give an excellent 43-10 victory.

Park complete their League season with a rearranged home game on Thursday evening against Bedford Queens. 7.30 KO under floodlights.

Posse day, weekend wrap and match footage

This weekend saw 3 of the senior mens teams each put a win under the belt on Posse day, this in front of a large crowd with families enjoying the good weather as well as watching some excellent rugby on display.

 

 

 

With a large crowd cheering them on all 3 Park teams put in good performances to end the season on a high note.    The ladies team were in fine voice….. and fancy dress, cheering the men on, having finished their season the previous weekend.

 

Not helped by the earlier buckets of Gin and Tonic consumed, the cameraman did manage to capture at least some of the match highlights from all 3 teams.
