Jolly Boys close season with resounding win

Win seals 4th place finish

The Jollyboys concluded their Caledonia 3 North season on Saturday with a resounding win against Peterhead in glorious sunshine at Countesswells. With the world famous RGU Blues Ball on the Friday night, there was not a single RGU student in Saturdays squad, however a number of former RGC students made returns to Countesswells with Neil Miller & Conor Grieve both turning out for the first time this season.

Playing into the wind in the first half Gordonians started off brightly taking possession off the restart and retaining possession before Fraser Smith cut a good angle to crash under the posts. From the resulting play captain Andrew Cowie looked like the 5 minutes had taken it out of him and almost left the field of play within 5 minutes for the second week running however the old warrior soldiered on. Playing at a quick tempo, tries for Eric Edgar and the evergreen James Bowen followed but it would appear the kickers had been taking too many tips from Toblerone Toes with some very wayward attempts at goal. After some sustained Peterhead pressure with solid fringe defence the JBs closed the half with a flurry of counter attack tries.

With a comfortable lead the second half began as the first finished with half time super sub John Campbell galloping in to score although in his excitement decided not to go under the posts for some strange reason. Despite this, Ciaran Marshall converted much to everone's delight. A quick-fire double from James Bowen gave the 2 two time Ma Bells Champion a hatrick of tries in his last appearance for the club, though not content with this he also slotted a conversion and a drop goal which was subsequently chalked off due to an infringement by Andrew Cowie. From here the JB’s went a bit flat and let Peterhead in to score their only try of the game which was fully deserved for the effort they put in. Craig McEwan took the opportunity while chasing a kick through to sit down like a baby instead of entering a ruck however the impressive Harry Kinsey saved his blushes by turning the ball over. There were further tries for Richard Gray and a great solo effort by Harry Kinsey even turning around in a circle before outstripping the tiring defence.

A fitting way to end a very successful season for the club playing an expansive wide game which coach Richie Anderson has been breeding into the players all season. A special mention to the four individuals playing their last game for the clubs before moving onto pastures new; Matthew Brechin, James Bowen, Iain Lauritsen & Richard Gray.
