Your News Stourbridge 46 - Blaydon 7

Having secured their League Two status seven days earlier Blaydon were 'never at the races' in this final game of the season at Stourbridge and predictably were on the end of an 8 try thrashing.

The home side, just one league place above Blaydon, had it all their own way, particularly in the closing stages when they ran in 5 of their touchdowns unanswered.

Despite the one-way traffic Blaydon were only 12-0 down at the interval and had their only bright spell in the 10 minutes after the restart when they crossed the home line for the only time. A flowing movement took play from one 22 to the other where back-rower Stephen Trench popped up among the backs to finish it off and Charlie Raynor added the conversion points.

Otherwise they threatened little apart from some forceful running from winger James Clark, and a pleasing debut for scrum-half Duncan Pollock, son of former Scotland International Jim.

Stourbridge grabbed an early lead through their prop forward Simon Homer, and by the break, centre Ben Barclay had also crossed the visitors line from good turnover ball. Scott Morriss the other centre added number 3 to make it 17-7 at that stage and then the floodgates opened.

Full-back John Hall became all-time leading try scorer for the club when he ran in the first of his pair, and other scores were added by Bill Hughes, William Foden and a second for Morriss, with Alistair Bressington completing the scoring with 3 conversions.
