Club tries hard for silverware


Newark Rugby Club is chasing another chance to win silverware this season after the 2nds won 35-10 against West Bridgford in the Notts Cup quarter-final.

Victory gives Alex Jackson’s team a semi-final at Mansfield next month, and a chance to match the efforts of the senior XV who reached the final of the Three Counties Cup, having beaten Mansfield last week.

Newark had to make changes for the match at Bridgford, including a late call up for third team captain Dan Harrison and colts scrum-half Dan Cudlipp, who stepped up from the fourth team to play alongside father John Cudlipp, the prop.

Bridgford had first use of the conditions and went in 10-8 ahead at half time.

Newark then took charge after the interval and scored three tries through flanker Gareth Bartsch and centres Chris Blood and Nick Galinski.

Harrison, who had kicked a first-half penalty goal, added three conversions and two late penalties.

Newark’s other try had come in the first half through wing Johnny Statham.

Besides Cudlipp at scrum-half, a feature of the match was the introduction of other players from the colts section in hooker Michael Topley and lock Aaron Gibson.
