Former Clee Hill skipper Gary Edwards jumps for joy after 42-10 win at Tenbury in Midlands Four West (North) derby
Tenbury 10 pts Clee Hill 42 pts
FORMER skipper Gary Edwards says Clee Hill were jumping for joy after romping to their biggest-ever win at Palmer’s Meadow.
The Hillmen dominated the pack and scored four first-half tries to set up a stunning Midlands Four West (North) derby triumph.
“Clee Hill’s forwards were far too powerful for the home side and it allowed our backs to have as much ball as they wanted,” said Edwards.
“Tenbury did get a consolation try but it didn’t stop us securing our highest win over them on home soil.”
Ben King’s penalty put Tenbury 3-0 ahead before tries from Richard Wozencroft, Adam Yarnold, Charlie Evans and Craig Breakwell gave Clee Hill control.
After the interval, Breakwell and Evans each bagged their second tries and Robbie Jordan also crossed in Hill’s crushing victory.
Wozencroft slotted a penalty and two conversions, while Sam Thomas scored Tenbury’s try and King added a conversion.
Tenbury skipper Pete Stevens admitted Clee Hill were ‘by far’ the better team. “There was only one side in it,” said Stevens.
“Clee Hill were mediocre last season but Richard Wozencroft has made their backs click,” he said.
“Clee Hill is where Richard started and he’s gone back there.
"Hopefully, he will see the light and come back to us in a few years’ time.”
