Che­sham’s mud and thun­der earns them County Plate fi­nal

U13s beat their Mil­ton Keynes coun­ter­parts com­pre­hen­sively in blus­tery and wet con­di­tions

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

num­ber eight Al­fie Dix sup­ported by flankers Ge­orge We­ston and Max Mor­phey.

The wind dropped in the se­cond half but MK had few op­por­tu­ni­ties to break a tight Che­sham de­fence, and on the two oc­ca­sions they did, Ethan Bryan made try sav­ing tack­les to earn him­self the ti­tle of man of the match.

Che­sham’s other wing, Pa­trick Eller­ton, also earned recog­ni­tion from his coaches for an out­stand­ing per­sonal per­for­mance, while try of the day saw Aaron Ste­wart run half the length of the field and through the help­less de­fence.

We­ston also bagged a brace of tries, while Mor­phey, Dix and Michael Ad­cock added one each and McNaughton kicked two con­ver­sions.

Che­sham were hop­ing to meet High Wy­combe in the fi­nal, the team who had knocked them out of the County Cup de­spite the game end­ing in a draw with the away team be­ing awarded the win.

But it was not to be as Wy­combe went down 19-12 to Ayles­bury in the other semi and it is they who Che­sham will play in the fi­nal on Sun­day March 13, at Bletch­ley RFC.

It was also a good day for Che­sham’s men’s first XV, who made it two league wins in a row for the first time this sea­son, beat­ing Alch­ester 15-5 to move clear of the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier drop zone.

Billy Moore scored both tries while Ross Leek kicked the rest of the points. They visit Chip­ping Nor­ton this Satur­day.
