Wharfedale 14-16 Otley

September 22nd, 2018 Comments off

On a fine day in the Dales, a large crowd saw Otley pip Wharfedale in a fiercely contested local derby. Playing up the hill in the first period, Wharfedale edged the early exchanges, with Dan Stockdale running in under the posts on the quarter hour. The visitors came back into the match, and Dale’s Rian Hamilton was yellow-carded for a deliberate knock-on. An Otley penalty and a fine break-out try by Oliver Goss left the visitors leading until, on the stroke of half-time, Wharfedale put together a fine running move for Tom Mann to score under the posts. Leading at 14-8 at the break, Dale would have been confident. In the second half, though, the Otley pack established a clear dominance. Jack Scott Brown, the Otley 8, was a threat all afternoon. They spent most of the second period camped in the Wharfedale half. An Otley line-out drive saw Brett Mitchell dot down for an unconverted try on 51 minutes. Shortly afterwards Dale’s fly-half, Will Bell, saw yellow for obstruction during an Otley attack, and from the resultant penalty Ben Smith gave his side a two point lead. This was to remain the final score, although in the final minute Wharfedale broke through Rian Hamilton to nearly snatch victory.

Wharfedale: – Tries – Stockdale, Mann. Conversions – Mann (2).

Otley: – Tries – Goss, Mitchell. Penalties – Rowntree (2)

Star Man: – Jack Scott-Paul (Otley)

Help Needed with the Grounds

September 4th, 2018 Comments off

Now that the new season is underway it is clear that we need more assistance with grasscutting, strimming and white lining etc on and around the various pitches.

Most of the work is carried out on Friday mornings usually from 9.00 in readiness for the various matches at the weekends. However, some work on Saturdays may well be necessary if a Friday proves, for example, to be very wet.

If you are free and willing to help out with this essential work, please send an e-mail to gms@wharfedalerufc.co.uk. All help will be greatly appreciated.
