The mighty 5ths traveled to Barkers Lane for the other ‘Battle of Bedfordshire’ against the Swifts.
We left Ampthill with our team being depleted by four due to monstrous excuses such as moustache growing and child care in slightly overcast conditions.
We arrived in Bedford to a subtropical temperature and the boys were delighted to have Trevor refereeing following on from his tremendous performance last weekend, once again they weren’t disappointed with his personal interpretations of the laws.
Playing in the second row I cannot remember exactly the order of points but fortunately, Ampthill stuck to the task in hand and came out 36-19 winners with a brace of tries from our very own Exocet missile Jack Blakey with Corey Lewis, Lewis Janes and Istvan Balint all going over the line, conversions coming from Jack and the most senior of all the Breezes (the only one who wasn’t washing his hair) finishing it off.
