Injury-hit Youth Club edge win

Selkirk Youth Club19

Berwick Colts17

DUE to injuries Youth Club were playing with a depleted squad but started off in great fashion.

Fergus Hitchcock took a great line-out ball before beating a couple of players to score a try after just five minutes.

Youth Club stayed on the front foot and a great up and under from Darren Knox split the colts defence allowing Matthew Brass to take the ball in the air and run unopposed between the posts.

Knox kicked the conversion before Berwick got back into the game with a try on the stroke of half to make it 12-5.

Berwick started the second half the stronger team scoring two tries, with the latter being converted, to make the score 12-17 with five minutes left. Continued strong running in midfield however saw Lewis Martin rewarded with a try converted by Knox in the last minute to edge the victory for the hosts.
