Result 23 March

March 23rd, 2019 Comments off

Sheffield Tigers 20-22 Wharfedale – The Green Machine got back to winning ways with a strong defensive performance to hang on to a fine win away at Sheffield Tigers.

Dale started strongly and opened the scoring with a scintillating try from Rian Hamilton. Dale won turnover ball in their own 22 and Harry Bullough started the move by running the ball. An excellent off load to Hamilton saw the full back set off, breaking a tackle, to beat the cover to score from 70 metres. No conversion but Jack Blakeney-Edwards knocked over a penalty kick from 30 metres minutes later.

Rian Hamilton on his way to his try

The visitors came close to scoring a second try with a sweeping move involving outstanding handling which broke down 5 metres short. Tigers started getting control of the ball and were rewarded before half time with three points from the boot of Mark Ireland.

Dale came out strongly at the start of the second half and after nine phases Phil Woodhead nipped through a gap to score under the posts. Blakeney-Edwards added the extras.

Sheffield hit back with an unconverted try by Henri Packard. Wharfdale then scored from a catch and drive with James Tyson being awarded the score. Up stepped Blakeney-Edwards to nail the touch line conversion that was to prove invaluable.

Sheffield got back into the game when a kick ahead bounced back into Jamie Broadley’s hands for him to cross the whitewash. The conversion hit the post and also bounced back.

A converted Robbie Davidson try for Tigers set up a close finish but Dale showed good control in the final minutes to claim the 4 points.

The full report will follow shortly. The match photographs are available under the Photos tab near the top of this page – follow the Link to Flickr Album.

“The Floodlights were on but they didn’t give off much heat”

Many thanks to those hardly souls across in the ‘Shed’ who huddled together like Emperor penguins to brave the bitterly cold conditions whilst watching the recent match against Chester. Especially those of you who gingerly removed a glove or mitten to assist with picking out of the ten winning numbers for the 200 Club draw. We even attracted 3 new members to the Club in the process – so apart from the weather and the scoreline it wasn’t too bad a day!

Carol Brown

March 15th, 2019 Comments off

We are very sorry to have to announce that Carol slipped away peacefully at 04:00 this morning at home in the arms of her family. She had suffered a rare and aggressive form of cancer but at no stage did she experience pain.

A constant presence at the club, Carol was at one time Chairman of the Ladies’ Committee, and (even more importantly!) mended and even rebuilt the playing shirts of all the teams over a period of 30 years. She will be greatly missed and we send our condolences to the family. She leaves behind as well as her husband Gordon, their daughters Victoria and Suzie, their son Fraser and their grandchildren Lucy and Scott.

Carol’s cremation will be on Wednesday 27 March at 10:50 at the Skipton Crematorium, followed by a knees-up at the rugby club. All her friends are invited to attend. Carol’s request is that sombre colours are NOT to be worn.
