Under 14 rugby
North Walsham 15
West Norfolk 29
On Sunday morning for their second match of the season West used their recent new team kit of wet weather tops sponsored by Pete Collie and shorts and socks sponsored by Middleton Aggregates.
North Walsham scored first which woke up the whole team and they made fluent play in difficult conditions.
After continued phases of play Tom Hitchcock broke the line and scored under the posts, converted by Jack Trundley. Hitchcock crossed the line again only to be denied by a forward pass.
A further try just before the break went to the home team (half-time score 12-7).
In the second half, the Wests forwards were dominant. From a scrum Olly Spurrier fed Trundley to score. Trundley fooled the defence with a forceful run into space to score.
Walsham scored but from a ruck the ball found its way to George Lemon who darted through the defence to offload the ball to Trundley who sealed his second-half hat-trick ( try converted).
Spurrier, Trundley, Morgan Smith and Hitchcock set up Connor Clarke to touch down in a great squad performance.
Squad: Clingo, Gallacher, Clarke, Smith, Trundley (C), Lemon, Collie, Spurrier, Alvarez, Wilson, Dew, Price-Waring, Hitchcock, A Warrington, C Warrington, Lankfer, Quinlan, McCallum, Hunter.
Diss 5 West 60
A strong start resulted in Matthew stealing the ball from the breakdown to open the scoring in the first few minutes on Sunday.
West were the stronger side as four tries from Lucas helped open up a comfortable lead. Though Diss competed well at the breakdown West were always in control with tries from Keaton (2), ‘Tank’ (2), Jake (2) and Jack.
Other squad members Euan, Henry, Joshua, Sam and Jamie contributed to an improved display.

West came out strong versus a determined Walsham.
Strong tackling by Jake Lamas saw Jack tempted to take the ball over the line, however Walsham’s defence drove him back.
With West remaining confident Alfie took the ball over the line. Angus Williams kicked the conversion, however Walsham came back to score a try. West continued to fight, although Walsham scored again.
