Bognor under-tens ended a rollercoaster season on a high with resounding wins for the A team over Worthing and a much-improved display from the Bs.

After relentless pressure had seen Ben Barker pulled down just short of the line in the A team game, Worthing sprang on the loose ball and their speedy winger ran the length of the field to score against the run of play.

The front row of Barker, Peterson and Scott-Darling had the edge in the scrums. From a scrum inside the Worthing half, fly-half Corbould bashed his way over the gainline before Robinson and Ide secured the ball and Norrell stepped over for a great equalising try.

The second half saw a stream of Bognor attacks with Stanley and Freddie Hayes running strongly. From a tap penalty, scrum-half Spurle fed Norrell spotted a gap and crashed through two tackles to score.

Bognor scored again when a sweeping move reaching the twinkle-toed Scott-Darling who scored in the corner.

Worthing cut the lead with the final play of the match.

The team sent their thanks to this year’s sponsors – V&A Hutchinson Flooring, D&R Structures, F&G Transport and Premiere Refurbishments.
