The Moore the mer­rier at Che­sham Rugby Club

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

FATHER and son duo Steve and Billy Moore took to the pitch to­gether for the first time to help Che­sham RFC win for the first time in 10 matches on Satur­day.

Vet­eran scrum-half Steve came on at half-time to join teenage son Billy on the pitch as Che­sham won 10-7 at Wheat­ley to end a run of nine straight de­feats in the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier. Ross Leek kicked a penalty and a con­ver­sion for the Stags, while a well worked move put in winger Kieran Aroudj for their only try as Che­sham came from be­hind be­fore hold­ing firm to se­cure vic­tory.

There were plenty of muddy mar­vels among the ju­nior teams too on Sun­day as they mas­tered dif­fi­cult play­ing con­di­tions to record some ex­cel­lent re­sults. The U16s led the way with a 43-0 de­mo­li­tion of High Wy­combe, Ge­orge Pet­tifer bag­ging a brace of tries. The rest were shared be­tween Ben Popely, Luke Daw­son, Harry Pawlak, Calum Young and Ed Lunt, while Luke Bouch­ier added four con­ver­sions as they leapfrogged their op­po­nents in OBB Divi­sion Two.

The Che­sham Colts gave an out­stand­ing de­fen­sive dis­play against Chip­ping Nor­ton in Divi­sion Three of the OBB Colts League, with some as­tute tac­ti­cal kick­ing by fly-half Al­fie Pet­tifer pin­ning their op­po­nents firmly in their half and forc­ing them into con­tin­u­ous han­dling er­rors.

Jack Ed­house touched down af­ter a break by Pet­tifer, be­fore con­vert­ing his own try from near the touch­line, while props Ryan Men­do­lia and Jor­dan Ross bull­dozed over for two tries.

The U13s had a hard fought win 192 win against Bea­cons­field to put them through to the semi-fi­nal of the Bucks Plate, while the girls sides all tasted vic­tory at se­nior (20-0 against Hamp­stead), U18s (25-10 against Harpen­den), U15s (73-0 against Harpen­den) and U13s lev­els.
