AMER­SHAM & Chiltern ran in nine tries as they beat neigh­bours Che­sham in the U13 Bucks quar­ter fi­nals at Chiltern Hills Academy on Sun­day.

In late au­tumn sun­shine, it was Che­sham who would be left in the shad­ows as Amer­sham showed early dom­i­nance, Cian McGuinn run­ning through the cen­tre for the open­ing try be­fore a Che­sham clear­ance was gath­ered for Chris Whi­taker to run in a sec­ond un­der the posts.

Amer­sham con­tin­ued to dom­i­nate in the first pe­riod and Stephen Hughes was on hand to re­ceive a pass to score the third try in the cor­ner, be­fore prop Ju­lian Shaw went for route one, forc­ing his way through for a fourth.

On the right wing, Felix Hale wrig­gled his way like an eel through the Che­sham tack­les for another, and Hale added his sec­ond try shortly after, show­ing a great turn of pace fol­low­ing an elec­tric run.

In the sec­ond pe­riod, Ben Har­ris pun­ished Che­sham for a dropped pass, ground­ing the ball for a try, and fi­nally, Ainle McGuinn turned on the after burn­ers to race away to score two fur­ther tries and com­plete a con­vinc­ing 49-0 vic­tory.

Amer­sham’s men of the match went to Dan Eck­er­s­ley in the for­ward depart­ment and Jack Car­ling in the backs, with both play­ing key team roles.
