Hadleigh clinch the title

EASTERN COUNTIES 2: Felixstowe 12 Hadleigh 43

A WIN against Felixstowe would clinch the league title for Hadleigh.

Ten minutes in, Hadleigh full-back, O’Halloran took a high kick and sprinted half the length of the pitch to score on the left wing.

This appeared to wake Felixstowe who fought back to score near the posts from a five metre scrum.

It was not until the 35th minute that Hadleigh started to revive and a good scrum in the centre of the field allowed scrum-half Pessaro to release the Hadleigh backs for left wing Crisp to cross the line, which was converted by Kelly.
