OCT

The early play from Oldfield, utilising their strong pack, put the home side under pressure. It was some determined tackling from the midfeld players and Oldfield conceding a number of infringements which kept the scoreline clean.

In one of the few Yatton forays up the slope the forwards rucked well and after a couple of unsuccessful attempts to cross the line prop Phil Jones emerged successfully for a deserved try, somewhat against the general run of play. Andy Williams converted.

The second half down the hill should have been easier for the home side as the Oldfield side began to tire and suffered some injuries, but they still made it hard work for Yatton.

Gradually Yatton gained more possession and centres Glen Phillips and Josh Batterham made some good runs, one of which resulted in newcomer Batterham scoring an excellent try. Williams again converted.

Yatton were then in control and to finish off the match Jonathan Crew, coming on as replacement, flipped a neat inside pass for Matt Ivens, perfectly positioned in support, to break through the last lines of defence to score the coup de grace. Williams finished a good kicking display to claim his third conversion.

This was a good win for the home side, which they needed after recent results, and Oldfield certainly made it a real contest.

The Yatton Club have been very pleased to welcome several young players from Langford College this year, and they are already contributing exceptionally well to the club at several levels.

Unfortunately they will not be available next Saturday as they are playing in the annual fixture ‘Student v Ex-students’ kick off 12 noon at Yatton’s ground. This always proves to be an enthusiastic and hard fought event, well worth watching as a pre-cursor to the Yatton 1st team taking on St. Ives.
