Northumberland Cups 2017
« on: February 12, 2017, 05:05:13 PM »
This coming weekend sees ALL Northumberland cup fixtures taking place on the same weekend. This is to make sure there's no loading in lower teams when games are played on different weekends. Definitely a step in the right direction in my opinion. Seghill and Prudhoe 1st XVs are also taking part.

Anyway! Here's the draw:

Senior Shield:
Morpeth 2 v Medicals 2
Northern 2 v Seghill 1st XV
Tynedale 3 v Alnwick 2
Novos 2 v Percy Park 2

Junior Cup:
Gosforth 2 v Novos 3
Ponteland 2 v Morpeth 3
Percy Park 3 v Northern 3
Alnwick 3 v Prudhoe & Stocksfield 1st XV

Junior Shield:
Rockcliff 2 v Medicals 3
Blyth 2 v Ashington 2
Morpeth 4 v West End
Berwick 2 v North Shields 2

Junior Trophy:
Blyth 3 v Tynedale Vets
Gosforth 3 v Winner of Seghill 2 v Rockcliff 3
North Shields 3 v Novos 4
Ponteland 3 v Ashington 3

Thanks for posting this - useful to have all in one place. Would be good to keep going to track through to the finals. I saw that the Northumberland RFU Twitter had the semi-final draws but it's not the easiest to follow.

Seghill 2 v Rockcliff 3 was played back in November. WBR won 17 v 13 so should have gone on to face Gosforth 3.

Northern 2 v Seghill 1 is due to be played Tuesday 28th Feb due to both teams having league commitments either last or this weekend.

Seghill defeated Northern 2s 19 v 17 last night. Very close game where the lead changed hands on 4 occasions. Believe we now play Percy Park 2s in the Semi Final and Northern drop to the plate semi vs Medicals 2.

With Seghill having league games every Saturday up to the day of the final, the semi will have to be played midweek.

Seghill travelled to Percy Park to play a strong Lions XV on Wednesday night. HT score 23 v 17. Fitness told in the second half and Park pulled away to win 68 v 29. Seghill scored 4 tries against the toughest opposition we're likely to face this season. We'll go again next year!

Good show Seghill! Well done for getting to the semi finals and doing so well - I'm sure you've learned more than losing a game in August in the Senior Plate (like in recent years).. Regardless of this, people shouldn't forget that Seghill have won the Senior Cup four times! A fantastic rugby club - keep on keeping on!

If Seghill play with that determination next season  they would be my bet for D&N 3 league champs and promotion to D&N 2.

As noted above Seghill hosted the Northumberland Junior Cup finals on Saturday. Congrats to Ponteland II & Morpeth Eds for their respective wins.

I was away with our first team myself, however I'm lead to believe both games were close and competitive affairs.

8th April final is Ashington 2s vs WBR Vikings. Was due to be Berwick Bears but Ashington were reinstated after Berwick did exactly what they did a couple of seasons ago and were kicked out. You'd think after a year ban from cup competition it might have served as a lesson.

Be careful throwing stones gazelle... A quick look at finals day photos showed a  stack of first xv players representing junior sides in a cup final.

Which clubs do you think loaded their sides ?

I know it wasn't Percy Park as they had a full first XV out against Bradford & Bingley a game they needed to win and did so handsomely.
