Morley Report

12th May 2023

Middlesbrough 29 Morley 17I am running out of superlatives for this team of ours.First 10 minutes it is all Morley and eventually they score out wide 0-5This wakes up the Boro Boys and they come more and more into the game, from a line out a driving maul is set up and this ends up over the line with Alistair Lang coming up with the score, Andrew Baggett converts 7-5To and fro, up and down the pitch, attack v defence for the next 20 minutes with both sides creating chances. 345 minutes in Boro have another driving maul, the backs join in, and scrum half Chris Lord comes up with the ball 12-5Special mention to the Boro backs who are running some tremendous lines, led by Pete Homan and Jack McPhillips.Our visitors are next to cross the whitewash, scoring out wide 12-10Fantastic interplay between the home side’s backs and forwards gets the ball in flying wing Will Deeks hands and he runs in to score, this try is converted with a great kick from Andrew Baggett 19-10A bad tackle from Morley’s number 5, who was having a cracking game, has him seeing Red. Andrew Baggett slots the resulting penalty making the half time score Boro 22 Morley 10The second half is a humdinger as Morley try to get back into the game and Boro thwarting their every attempt, Boro’s James Walker gets 10 minutes rest for an infringement. He has been everywhere today and even though a yellow card is not the way he wanted to get it probably deserves the rest.More good interplay from Boro gets the ball out wide to substitute Sam Pearey-Gill who scores in the corner, Andrew Baggett hits another super conversion 29-10Morley score a converted try with 8 minutes to go 29-17Both teams are still at it hammer and tongs until the final whistle, but no more scoring FT Middlesbrough 29 Morley 17What a game, but the result means that we round off our 150th year, WITH A YORKSHIRE CUP FINAL, BABY!!We await the winners of the other semi-final that will be played on Thursday evening between Doncaster Phoenix and Sandal.The man of the match, chosen by Morley, went to Boro No7 Rohan Brown, a well deserved award.Personally, My Men of the Match were Messrs Josh Lynas Joe Sawdon Myles Colvin James Walker Finlay Magowan Rohan Brown Alistair Lang Adam Marron Chris Lord Andrew Baggett Harry Bryce Pete Homan Jack McPhillips Will Deeks Matthew Marsay Matthew Helm Joseph McNeill Nathan Booth Sam Pearey-Gill and Christopher McRobert, superb performance fellas.As Pete Wright said to me on our way into the club “WE need to bank that result, cos wins against Morley don’t come along very often”Thank you all for your tremendous support I know the lads appreciate it.
