Percy Park Lions 45 - 29 Morpeth Reivers
The Lions started 2017 with a win over Morpeth Reivers . The scoreline 45-29 suggests an entertaining spectacle , but the game was a strange affair littered with errors and penalties with sporadic phases of good play by both sides .
With Park's colts playing over at Carlisle , the Lions had a very senior feel to their side . The good news was that Park had a full compliment of players unlike when they visited Mitford Road earlier in the season meaning one old fool could remain on the touchline where he is far more effective ! Ward , Kidd , Wilkinson , Phillips , Sshnairn , Tristan , Clarke , Lake , Kay , Turnbull , Mcdine , Hasnip , Jobson , Gilmore , Berne , Gurling , Whitfield , Casey . Good to see some of our injured returning to action .
