Pumas retain 3rd XV cup

Northumberland Junior Cup Final

Percy Park Pumas 27 – 5 Novos 2’s 

Cup Winners 2013 & 2014Cup Winners 2013 & 2014A 25 minute first-half blitz was enough to see off a spirited Novos 2nd team as Percy Park Pumas retained the Northumberland 3rd XV Junior Cup. 

For the second year in succession, Park were pitted against opposition from a higher league and Novos were first to show their hand when their full-back, who was a handful all afternoon, broke through the midfield and put his winger into space. A last ditch tackle from the covering Stephen Baskerville saved a certain try. 

Park regained composure and field position, drawing first blood when Baskerville slotted a penalty to make it 3-0.

This was the start of Park's purple patch and moments later, a break from a maul on Novos' left saw a popped pass to the supporting Josh Lake, who used his strength to hold off several would-be tacklers and reach over the line. Baskerville made the conversion from the right touchline and Park were 10-0 up.

The bounce, the forward pass and interception



George Lewis opens up the Loo defenceGeorge Lewis opens up the Loo defenceFor the second successive week, Park were sunk after the 80th minute, after having more of the play and possession, and for the second week Park came away with no points to show for all their efforts. The game hinged on a handful of major events which conspired against the visitors and saw the home side pull off a Houdini style escape from the relegation zone to ensure National league rugby again next season.

The sizeable crowd saw Loo take a 10-point lead after Park had started the brighter. A penalty on 13 minutes by Liam Reeve was increased with a converted try ten minutes later. With Waterloo on the attack, fly half Reeve put in a cross-field kick which appeared to be going dead but bounced inside the dead-ball area and came back infield to the waiting hands of left wing Luke Blease who dabbed the ball down for the easiest try he’ll score this season.

Park as in the game a week earlier had more of the possession but just could make it count. The Percy Park pack had the edge in both scrum and line-out, but the Blundellsands side defence was strong and determined, and it took a moment of individual skill for George Lewis to unpick the defensive lock with quick feet, stepping through the slightest of gaps and side stepping the Loo full back to score under the posts on 32 minutes. Toby Davison kicked the extras and Park were on the scoreboard and back in the game and the half ended 10 – 7 to the home side.

Killer Fakes

Tynemouth Fake Festival returns......

Tynemouth Fake Festival is back for a third year running this May Day weekend - and here's the best bit - we think we've nailed the strongest line-up yet to jump start the Summer! World class tributes to The Killers, Queen & The Stereophonics will be kicking off the 2014 Fake Festivals tour at Percy Park Rugby Club on Sat 3rd May.

Local event organiser Bec Cottrell says, "We're amazed how many of you have already bought tickets – so we're guessing this year's line-up appeals to our regulars too!" She laughs, "I just hope I actually get to see this show as I went into labour with my little girl the day before last year's festival & missed the whole thing - but by all accounts it was a fantastic day!"

"We're looking forwards to be heading up North for the start of the Summer and to open the 2014 Fake Festivals tour," says Trevor Hurley, aka Brandon Flowers of The Killers. "It's always such a great party atmosphere in the North East and we had such a great welcome when we performed at Chester-Le-Street Fake Festival last year."

Much improved performance but Park lose to Port



Oscar scores Park's opening tryOscar scores Park's opening tryPark were dealt a last minute body blow by table topping Stockport with an 82nd minute converted try which denied them even a single bonus point, which on the balance of play would have been justly deserved. The Cheshire side travelled to Preston Avenue with high expectations and a full strength squad, looking for a bonus point win to keep them above Huddersfield who are currently in the play off spot but snapping at their heels with 2 games in hand.

Percy Park’s injury woes were compounded on Wednesday evening when both skipper Michael Langlands and fly half Todd Harrison were injured during training, but Guy Pike returned to the team, as did veterans James Ponton and Thomas Turnbull who on the day both played out of their skins, giving their all for the team.

An early Josh Longmore penalty gave his side a 3- 0 lead, as Stockport had the early momentum, and his tally was doubled on 9 minutes. A break down the right wing by former Park Colt Joe Cantwell looked to be a certain try but Oscar Pritchard had other ideas and came of the opposite wing, and with a crunching tackle piled the Stockport wing into touch on the 5 metre line

It was Pritchard who again raised the Park spirits with a superb try a few minutes later. Port fullback Mark Edwards cleared his lines, but the ball was run back by Toby Davison finding left wing Olly Walker, who put Oscar Pritchard into space. The young Park wing burst through a couple of tackles and raced for the line stepping inside the covering defender to score under the posts. Toby Davison converted to take Park into the lead 7 – 6.

Lions lift the cup but Vets edged out by a point.



Jonny Dubois presented with the No2 CupJonny Dubois presented with the No2 CupThis was the fifth time in as many years Percy Park Lions had progressed to the final of the County No2 Competition, strangely but no doubt historically named the Senior Shield although the winners were presented with a fine silver cup.

Park had lost out in the previous 2 seasons at the hands of Corbridge Centurions and Alnwick II, who were both in the semi-final due to be played on the 15th March 2014, with the Tynedale side conceding the tie to give Alnwick a place in the final.

The game took place at Whitley Bay Rockcliff ,  a happy hunting ground for Park in recent years, as it proved again with the Lions running out winners 33 – 8. Alnwick started well but it was Park who notched first with Michael Groves retrieving a chip through to go over for the score that Paul Spowart converted from an acute angle.

Both sides competed fiercely and it wasn’t until the 32nd minute that that lock Josh Hedley using his 6’9” frame powered over to score with Spowart converting the extras. Stu Findlay scored wide out just before the break to take Park into the second half 19 – 0 ahead.
