Withycombe 53, Bournemouth Chiropractic College 46
The last encounter of the season at Raleigh Park saw 99 points scored with festival rugby being the name of the game, writes John Goldfinch.
Refereed by James Grant, who allowed the game to flow with the minimum of stoppages, it was entertaining for the large crowd, particularly those from Cleve, who had stopped to watch after junior Rugby event in the morning.
Tries came at regular intervals with scores from Lee Tanton (2), Neil Williams (2), Mike Symons(2), Matt Brambles (1 ), Chris Gibbons (1) and Kevin Rodwell. Lee Tanton converted four of the tries.
That brings Withies season to a close. With a highly respectably fourth place in the league the campaign can be considered a success. Training for the next campaign begins on an ad hoc basis immediately with official training commencing in June.
New players are always welcome and should contact Nigel Symons on 07791774982. The Committee would like to thank all those members of the Club, both from the Senior and Junior Section, who have put in so much effort to have made the 2011/2012 season so successful.
