Bletchley made the short trip to face local rivals Milton Keynes at the weekend, knowing a victory would give them an immediate return to South West 1 East next season. The Manor Field's outfit knew that MK would be keen to avenge their two loses earlier in the season and that there would be a tough challenge ahead of them.
Bletchley had started the match with complete possession of the ball in the first 30 minutes, allowing for a try, conversion and a penalty to all be scored by Dean Williams. The Bletchley forwards were able to control the game in this time allowing the backs to have access to quick and clean ball. However there was a moment where a Witney player had broken the line of defence and was in the try zone only to be pushed out by a Zealous Kyle Gibbings. That was the first half concluded.
Bletchley 3's travelled to Emerson Valley to play out their final fixture for this season the local derby between our friends and rivals at MK rugby club. An early kick-off was agreed to allow all to watch the 'other' match of the day when the Mk's were hosting league and promotion seeking Bletchley 1st team.
Bletchley U14s v Luctonians U14s –12th April 2014: After a late first night on tour followed by a long coach trip to Ledbury RFC, Bletchley U14s played fellow visitors to the Ledbury club, Luctonians. With the back drop of an oilseed rape field inbloom, not good for the hayfever sufferers, andthefestivities of the night before clearly evident in both parents and boys alike Luctionians scored a converted try from their first attack, score 0 to 7. The game settled into a pattern of Bletchley repelling wave after wave of Luctonians’ attacks and almost every attack that Bletchley launched ending uncharacteristically in a knock on or dropped pass which added to the pressure. Thescore remained 0 to 7until half time with Luctonians leading.
