p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: helvetica;"img src="" width="131" height="146" alt="Broadstreet-Logo-S" style="margin: 0px 10px 0px 0px; float: left;" /A lovely sunny Sunday afternoon at Pickford Grange Lane provided the backdrop for this Warwickshire Cup local derby match between east and west clubs, Broadstreet RFC and strongBarkers' Butts RFC/strong writes strongBob Harcourt/strong.nbsp; Although ‘Street took the spoils with an emphatic eight tries to 1, winning 59 – 10, the score hardly does credit to strongButts/strong contribution in an open and strongly contested encounter. In fact, territorially the hosts edged the possession and created several chances which were only snuffed out by last ditch ‘Street defence./span/p

p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: helvetica;"strongButts/strong registered first points with a 20thnbsp;minute penalty after missing two earlier shots, illustrating their first quarter dominance, but three minutes later strongJeff Gregson/strong registered his first touchdown of a hat-trick, converted by strongLee Chapman/strongnbsp;who added a penalty 5 minutes after to push ‘Street into a 10 – 3 advantage against the run of play.nbsp; The home side continued to pin ‘Street in their own half but two attacks from deep brought a second try for span style="color: #0000ff;"strongGregson/strong/span and one for former ‘Street junior, span style="color: #000000;"strongWill Owen/strong/span, back at the club after studies in Bath. span style="color: #0000ff;"strongChapman/strong/span converted both to take scoring to 24 – 3 entering the second quarter.nbsp; ‘Street’s scrum half span style="color: #000000;"strongAnthony Miller/strong/span was yellow carded on 27 minutes for not being 10 metres at a penalty award, but he returned to the fray with no further scoring by either side.nbsp; span style="color: #0000ff;"strongOwen/strong/span finished off the half with his second try, converted by the consummate boot of span style="color: #0000ff;"strongChapman/strong/span, advancing the visitors to 31 – 3 half time lead./spannbsp;/p

p style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: helvetica;"Seven minutes into the second half span style="color: #000000;"strongDanny Richards/strong/span; followed 5 minutes later by flanker span style="color: #000000;"strongAlex Beddows/strong/span, made touchdowns to take ‘Street way ahead on the scoreboard to the of the tune of 45 – 3. To say that strongButts/strong succumbed would be far from the truth as time and again they showed great fighting spirit and no little skill in putting together some really good football.nbsp; /span/p

p style="text-align: justify;"span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: helvetica;"Thereafter, changes and a yellow card shown to both sides, the final quarter looked a little disjointed, but tries by ‘Street full back strongAndy Murray/strong and a third to span style="color: #0000ff;"strongGregson/strong/span, sandwiched a deserved converted touchdown by the home side, bringing the closing score to 59 – 10. /span/p

p style="margin-bottom: 10pt; text-align: justify;"span style="font-family: helvetica; font-size: 12pt;"Including seven players on debut, ‘Street showed strength and pace in a performance which, it is hoped, will improve their showing in the league. strongButts/strong dogged and inventive display augers well for their campaign in Midlands One./spannbsp;/p
