On a glorious autumn afternoon and in front of a gathering of over 100 former players, including 15 1st team captains, Park secured an important league victory to put them back on their winning ways and give fresh impetus to their league campaign. This game was not a classic and was error ridden by both sides, however Park withstood the pressure from the visitors and eventually ran out the worthy winners.
With former skipper Steve Pollock moving to scrum half to counter injuries to Frank Daly and Alex Lovell, Park took an early lead when right wing Aron Colbert scored a try after some good handling. Centre Brandon Lewsey added the extras. Lewsey then added a penalty before the visitors responded with a converted try of their own to leave Park with a 10-7 lead at halftime.
In the second half, No8 Ben Griffin, returning from injury scored a try for Park after a powerful run. Lewsey again added the conversion before both sides added penalties to take the score to 20-10. With Park taking more control in the last quarter, right wing Aron Colbert scored his second try and secured a 25-10 victory for the home team.
Next Saturday Park travel to Rushden and Higham RFC for their next league fixture
