Redcar Put On Their Best Display of The Season For The Players Reunion

Redcar pulled out all the stops and showed the past players that they can also entertain and win.

For a change the weather was great and ideal for running rugby and Redcar took up the challenge. Gosforth got the game underway and straight away Redcar showed they wanted to play the game at pace, Gosforth committed a string of penalties in trying to slow Redcar down and the referee lost patience when a Gosforth centre deliberately knocked the ball on, stopping a potentially scoring pass and he received a yellow card, Redcar’s fullback Danny Addison kicked the penalty to open the scoring, 3 – 0. Gosforth replied with a penalty on 12 mins to even the score, 3 – 3.

Redcar continued to attack at every opportunity and from a penalty, scrum half Brad Stovell took a quick tap and the backs and forwards exchanged passes until young prop Cian Briggs charged towards the line and slipped the ball to winger Matty Curry who scored, Danny Addison added the conversion, 10 – 3. Redcar scored again on 33 mins when after several forward drives, fly half Richie Young made a break and centre Josh Dixon took the pass to score, Danny Addison converted again, 17 – 3. From the restart Redcar put a clearing kick upfield, Gosforth ran it back and eventfully lost the ball, Redcar’s forwards drove it on and a little kick through from Richie Young was followed up by Josh Dixon who chipped it on over the line and fell on it to score, Danny Addison once again converted, 24 – 3.

Half Time Redcar 24 Gosforth 3.

Redcar restarted the game and a resurgent Gosforth went on the attack and on 49 mins Redcar hooker Phil Dyball, who had been having a rampaging game in the loose, overstepped the mark and was yellow carded for offside, Gosforth took a quick tap penalty and scored, 24 – 8. Redcar then capitalised when Gosforth returning the restart kick, lost control of the ball, Redcar snapped it up and drove into the Gosforth 22, Richie Young (who must have been watching too many premiership games), tried an audacious cross field kick which beat everyone, but winger Matty Curry raced through and dived on the loose ball as it crossed the line, Danny Addison converted it with a super kick, 31 – 8.
At this point Redcar took their eye off the ball and allowed Gosforth, who despite the scoreline continued to compete and they rallied and were rewarded with two tries on 57 and 75 mins between which Redcar’s Brad Stovell got a yellow card, 31 – 22.

Redcar finished off the game in style with No.8 Ben Durrans scoring on 77 mins, a pick up and drive over from a scrum, 38 – 22 and finally the best move of the match from deep in their own half and only seconds to go, Redcar picked up a loose ball and with cries of kick it off the field, (to end the game), Ben Durrans charged off up the field jinking side to side, evading half of the Gosforth team then passed to Matty Curry, who shipped it on to Josh Dixon to score his hat trick try, much to the delight of the Redcar crowd, it had been a hard season and was justly deserved. Man of the match, Ben Durrans was given the final conversion, which he dropkicked over and the final whistle blew.

Full Time Redcar 45 Gosforth 22.
