CALLUM Wilkin­son bagged a brace of tries as Bea­cons­field saw off Mar­low 15-3 in Satur­day’s South­ern Coun­ties North derby.

Bea­cons­field opened the scor­ing within min­utes from a driv­ing scrum in the vis­i­tor’s five me­tre area, with Wilkin­son scor­ing from the back of the scrum and another three points fol­lowed through a penalty, although their next hit the up­right.

The next score came from a scrum formed from a for­ward ball right un­der the Mar­low posts and again Wilkin­son forced his way over for his sec­ond try and the con­ver­sion took the score to 15-0.

The game swung back­wards and for­wards, with Mar­low, be­ing put un­der con­stant pres­sure, not able to get their backs mov­ing, but pulled back a penalty to make the half time score 15-3.

The sec­ond half was at a much slower pace, although Mar­low put sus­tained pres­sure on the home side’s line, but with no fur­ther points be­ing scored in the sec­ond half Bea­cons­field gained some breath­ing space in the bot­tom half of the ta­ble.

It also moved them level on points and just a place be­hind neigh­bours Drifters, the Farn­ham Common side go­ing down 26-7 at Thatcham.

Up in Na­tional Three London & SE, Amer­sham & Chiltern came within two min­utes of a first win in six games when they led Chich­ester 16-15 through tries from Ross Bud­gen and Dom Wood, plus a Jack Kenyon penalty, but con­ceded a late penalty which was con­verted to send them to an 18-16 de­feat.
