Bucks Make History

By Dave Picken - April 19 2012
Bucks Make History Martin Todd and his Bucks team made a little bit of history by winning the first Pyman Shield -  defeating a very game and sporting Seaton IIs side by 62-0 ...

Pyman Shield 2012


The weather  was terrible, but there was a lot of support for both sides which showed that the decision to launch an end of season third team competition can only be good for local rugby.

At half-time the score was 19-0 but,  despite the Bucks bringing on Karlos,  the more youthful West side had too much pace for a tiring Seaton in the second half - Jay Corbett scoring a hat trick.

John Dove, of Hartlepool and District, presented the the Shield which is, in fact, a cup.

Did anyone see Karlos's burst of speed or was I dreaming it

I saw it too. Sprinted 10 metres up the touchline, shrugged off three tackles and then hurt his back in the tackle - all in front of a packed stand. A legend is born.

Must admit the weather beat me last night. Well done to the Buclks players and coaches and to Seaton for making the final and for the very sporting comments of M. Driver.
Hopefully, the weather will be kinder for the Pyman Cup next week although I hope the result is similar.

Superknobhead makes a good point. All these cup finals should be played at the Duck Pond cos it would be a neutral ground as Rovers have no chance of making a final !!!

Buckaroo, none of the above photos are mine. Unfortunately when the team you are involved in becomes successful you get lots of "glory hunters" who come in to try and steal your thunder.
I felt like a member of the paparazzi at times last night, jostling for position with part timers, with their long lenses and huge mega-pixels.....most distasteful!
I will be posting a full report, with video, of the game tomorrow, hopefully.

Chris - you've got to quicken up if you want to become a member of the paparazzi.
Looking forward to seeing if your camera could see through the gloom better than mine - and well done to you and the lads.

Karlos was almost yellow carded for - and I quote the referee exactly ' ...screaming and acting like a footballer...'

Karlos must have taken his sprint inspiration from his trip to watch the ladies play on sunday!

Well done boys. Wish I could have been there to add my experience (& weight) but obviously wasn't needed.

Well done lads, some fantastic rugby played this season. Well deserved.

Thats the story of Karlos's season, run five yards then go down squealing like a pig being eaten alive (by Karlos).
