Your News Seghill U12 travel to face Tynedale and Ponteland

It was with some trepidation that Seghill under 12's travelled to Corbridge on Sunday, for a three team tournament against hosts Tynedale, and Ponteland.

Renowned for their strength at all age levels, Tynedale were an unknown as Seghill had not played them this season, unlike Ponteland, who had beaten Seghill two weeks ago 28 7, at Welfare Park.

In the first match Tynedale drew with Ponteland 7 7, in a very physical match.

So when Seghill took to the field to play Tynedale, they knew the opposition was going to be tough. Seghill were awesome, and scored three tries, by William Ramsey, Ryan Wood and Matthew Hall, all of which were converted by the captain Callum Burgess. The game was an outstanding triumph with Seghill showing great positioning from the backs, and crunching rucks and mauls from the forwards. The game ended 21 0 to Seghill, who played with one man down after having a player sent off in the second half.

The second game with Ponteland saw a much tighter game, with Seghill's only points of the first half coming from a try by Jeff Burke, which was converted by William Ramsey. Only strong Seghill defence prevented Ponteland from scoring before the break.

The second half saw Seghill on the back foot, and forced into defending their line virtually throughout, but Ponteland were unable to break Seghill down, and the score remained 7-0 to Seghill at the final whistle.

These were two good scalps for Seghill, particularly that of Ponteland after the previous defeat. These two game will help to boost Seghill Under 12's confidence, and make them a force to reckon with, as they will again be meeting Ponteland and Tynedale in the County Cup in three weeks time, along with Morpeth and Alnwick.

The man of the tournament could have gone to several players, but on the day, coach David Warner decided to make the award to Callum Burgess. Although he did not directly score any tries, he was instrumental in creating space, kept the team organised throughout, and captained from the front.
