Tynedale U18s 19 Percy Park Under 17s 25
That old Greek fella Aesop knew a thing or two…
With no under 17 cup to contest Park under 17's travelled to Tynedale to play in the quarter final of the under 18 county cup. Park travelled more in hope than expectation, but at least their young side was determined to play and uphold the spirit of the game.
As expected the weather was grim and Tynedale adapted to the conditions with an effective driving game which pinned Park in their own half for much of the first twenty minutes, only courageous defence prevented them from scoring more than one try. Park worked their way in to the game and skipper Anderson kicked a simple penalty to peg the opposition back.
