A fitting game to mark the opening of Wymondham's impressive new ground

Holt extend their lead at the top of the table

Thank you to Iain MacBrayne for this match report:

This game was a fitting one to mark the opening of Wymondham's impressive new ground and clubhouse and the large crowd were well entertained for the full eighty minutes.
Holt looked very much the part as league leaders in the first half with a strong all round team performance. Holt's number 10, Tom Jackson,
controlled the game with his clever distribution of the ball and accurate kicking into space. Tom Jackson was soon on the scoreboard when he sliced through the home defence for a try. The conversion failed but was soon followed by a try from Geoff Flather converted by James Wyatt to increase Holt's lead to 0-12.
At this point Holt were dominant but were not able convert their possession into points. Wymondham could not settle into any rhythm due
to their high penalty count, one of which was converted by James Wyatt making it 0-15 .
Wymondham made their first serious incursion into the Holt half just before half time and were rewarded with a try from a well executed catch and drive following a line out five metres out.
Holt went further ahead early in the second half with a James Wyatt penalty to make the score 5-25 but were soon down to 13 men when they were penalised with two yellow cards. The penalty count started to work in the hosts favour and the resultant pressure brought its rewards with a try for their number ten, Charlie Delaney, which he converted. The final score of the game was a try for Wymondham hooker, Tom Masters, which was not converted.
Winning this top of the table clash means Holt extend their league to 3 points and Wymondham drop to third place behind Ely.
The Norfolk Brewhouse man of the match for Holt was prop Craig Utteridge who was making his first team debut. Mention must be made of Holt centre Melvyn Gilmour who valiantly carried on after a leg injury which had to be operated on after the game.
