Of the two matches that did proceed, it was a case of bounce-back-ability for our lads. Mid Kent travelled to West Suffolk for an ECFA Knock-out Cup tie that had been twice postponed.
What a start the West Suffolk lads made! Josh Curry put us ahead, then Craig Nurse scored twice to put us 3-0 up at the break. Job done? Well you'd like to think so but Mid Kent had other ideas. The visitors hit back with three second half goals to put the match level, with 10 minutes remaining. However we managed to overcome the Kent lads when Josh Curry scored his second of the match in the dying minutes to put us into the next round and a long trip to Huddersfield College.
Team Bury made one of their longest trips of the season to Fakenham and took a two goal lead into the halftime interval. As in the Mid Kent match, we relaxed and within minutes of the restart it was two each. We left it late but two goals from Andrew Wood in the last ten minutes was enough to give us a 4-2 win. That's nine wins in the last eleven league matches for Team Bury.

All the players, staff and parents thoroughly enjoyed these tournaments. Having our players as referees enabled the school teachers to coach their young squads.
Our rugby players swapped whistles for coaching jackets when they spent the day at King Edward VI Upper School with the school's Year 10 and 11 students on Friday for a V Rugby Coaching Day.
Well over 150 youngsters in the Bury St Edmunds area were involved in these V Rugby events. That is absolutely fantastic not only for the youngsters involved, who enjoyed the experience, but also for the local clubs which some of these youngsters might join.
