U16's Unlucky Against Barker Butts
By Gregg Henderson
Sutton lose 19-15 at home
Sunday 21st February
Sutton Coldfield RFC U16 v Barker Butts RFC U16
The half term weekend meant limited squads for both teams resulting in a fairly even contest.
However, Sutton’s errors proved to be their Achilles heel once again as what should have been a victory for the home side was squandered.
The first half proved to be a very even contest and only Matt Price’s try after 30 mins separated the two sides and saw Sutton 5 – 0 ahead at half time.
Within two minutes of the restart Matt Price’s 2nd try extended Sutton’s lead. However, following the restart some indecision led to a Barkers Butt try. Sutton rallied and ran in their 3rd try courtesy of Ollie Kirkham. Once again, an error from the restart gifted Butts another try and with only 10 mins remaining, following some concerted Sutton pressure, a Sutton error led to Butts running ¾ of the pitch to score under the posts to seal victory 19 – 15.
