Your News Yarnbury club round up

Yarnbury travelled to Halifax for this rearranged league match after their opponents pulled out of their national Cup commitments.The Horsforth side had to reorganise things under short notice without centre Jason Avison.Graham Maycock taking his place and second row Dave Moss coming in for injured Richard Longstaff and Adam Malthouse moving into the back row.

Yarnbury controlled all the ball and possession for the first 10 minutes and were rewarded with a penalty try under the posts when going for a certain push over try when the ball was blatantly kicked away out of the scrum.Carl Paterson converting.Rishworthians had their best spell for the next 10 minutes with two dangerous kick and chases from ex Halifax full back Aaron Canning.Two penalties were converted by Michael Piper for forward infringements before Yarnbury took charge and right wing Lawrence Smith finished off searching moves firstly being fed by Yarnbury Full back Andy Greaves and then secondly fed by stand off Carl Patterson put him under the posts after a 30 metre dummying run by the Yarnbury playmaker.Piper converted a third penalty to peg back the home side but the half finished with Yarnbury looking secure and confident with line out looking dominant and the front row of props Richard Lister and Andy Butterfield and hooker Alex Bowden strong and secure in the set pieces .

On the restart the Horsforth men took charge and the pack drove to the Halifax line for Adam Malthouse to break out and crash over for Paterson to convert.A sweeping backs move and quick ball saw centre Graham Maycock score out wide Patterson again converting.The best move of the game saw interplay between the forwards and the backs to go 50 metres down the field and winger Mark Dixon diving over in the corner after quick hands from Patterson,Maycock and Greaves.Patterson converting impressively from the touchline.

The final and seventh try went to centre Graham Maycock with substitute winger Tom Daniels following Patterson's lead and converting from out wide to give an impressive win for Yarnbury and keep them in contention at the top of the table where they have two games in hand on their opponents.Bob Hoods men are looking confident for the run in to the end of the season and made it eight consecutive wins and a further bonus point for four or more tries.

Next weeks local derby at West Leeds beckons for the Horsforth side.

York 2nd XV 40 0 Yarnbury Hornets

The Hornets suffered their heaviest defeat of the season to date away against a dominant York outfit. From the kick off it was clear that York had the edge in the physical stakes and as the game progressed they also had the advantage in terms of skill and technical ability.

Yarnbury bravely held out for 15 minutes but the pressure told in the end with a pushover try to the home side and with a penalty to follow took a commanding lead.Yarnbury stand off Daniel Pound failed with their own penalty attempt and a quick pass out wide by Pound was smart thinking but the long pass was knocked on unfortunately by wing forward Jimmy Cryan.

At 15 - 0 at half time the Horsforth side were still in the game but even veteran scrum half Andy Cowley a lover of the physical side of the game was taking some big hits against larger and heavier York forwards.Adam Reynolds was introduced to add some experience but on the day this side were too strong and powerful for a youthful Hornets side where Yarnbury battled bravely with Alex Crowther,Alex Clarke and Alex Postle working hard for the team who will learn from this experience.

York 4ths 17 -17 Yarnbury Nomads

Andy Hargreaves men travelled to York with the second team and faired better than their younger Hornets side getting an impressive draw against the York Veterans without substitutes having only a fifteen man compliment.

Yarnbury scored two tries through centre Matt Bradney and 17year old Adam Roebuck both converted by centre Ben Mortimer who also converted a penalty.

An impressive draw for the fifteen man Nomads despite York using a full compliment of substitutes but failing to break through for the win.
