Stags U16s set two club records with tight Plate win

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

A LATE try from scrum-half Ge­orge Pet­tifer saw Che­sham Stags U16s lift the Bucks County Plate on Sun­day with an 8-7 win over Bletch­ley.

Che­sham led at half-time through Luke Bouch­ier’s penalty but found them­selves 7-3 adrift with 10 min­utes to go. How­ever, with just five min­utes left, af­ter Che­sham were held up over the line from a rolling maul, the ball squirted out of the re­sult­ing scrum for Pet­tifer to pounce and claim vic­tory.

In do­ing so, the side set two club records. Not only is it the sec­ond county tro­phy Che­sham have won this year fol­low­ing their suc­cess in the U13s Plate, but it is also the sec­ond year in a row that the Stags have won the U16s Plate.

Also in the squad are Chap­man, Jarred Searle, Matt Harry Pawlak, Tom Collins, Vivek Gulati, Ben Popely, Mark New­some, Will Scott, Luke Daw­son, James Hogg, Ed Lunt, Calum Young, Max McLaugh­lin, Archie Bail­lie, Barn­aby Bloom, Melusi Ndoro and Mor­gan Fielder.

To add to the cel­e­bra­tions, the U11s won the Sara­cens U11 Fes­ti­val, while the U12s and U13s both beat Slough and the se­nior men’s team ham­mered Princes Ris­bor­ough 53-0.
