Match Report by Tony Pomeroy A cool but sunny day in Cornwall and nothing realistically hanging on the result should have given us a free-flowing, open game. What we got was a game littered with errors from every participant. Camborne deserved the win if only for the fact that they took some of their chances [...]

The second team welcomed back Adrian Tew from the first team as well as handing débuts to Kyran Devitt [...]
UNUSUALY BELEAGUERED DIRTRACKERS RECEIVE DRUBBINGFROM THE LEAGUE CHAMPIONS BUT CAN STILL HOLD THEIR HEADS HIGH WYVERN 116 BRIDGWATER & ALBION ATHLETIC 24 For the first time this season, the Dirtrackers’ ranks were completely decimated as ten players set out for Mountfields – later to be made up to 11 when a further player arrived.

In blustery conditions at College Way Albion again exacted just revenge for a heavy defeat in the first half of the season at Burnham when overcoming the seasiders 49-33. Albion’s side once again showed several changes – both personnel and positional with Dan Steward making a late seasonal debut but to telling effect. Albion immediately [...]
Bridgy Colts are the only team at home this Valentines day, Saturday 14th February and take on Wells Colts in the Somerset under 18 league with KO at 2.30pm. Wells are the league leaders even ahead of Wellington who have won it for the past three seasons, so it’s a big ask but our lads [...]
Bridgy were unrecognisable as the same team that lost heavily the previous week. Their closing down of Weston runners and first up tackling was a vast improvement. So much so that, three minutes in the Bridgwater centres were caught well offside in their enthusiasm. Weston slotted the resultant penalty. For the remainder of the first [...]
This result is the heaviest defeat for Bridgy’s colts for some. The main factors being some very poor tackling from Bridgwater in defence and (credit to Wellington) the sheer mobility and physical fitness of all their players, of which they appear to have almost two full squads again! In truth, going forward, Bridgwater exercise good [...]
