Hull Ionians 17 Blackheath 64

Posted by

As one-sided a contest as you’ll get.  Blackheath scored ten tries, five in each half, in this demolition of struggling Ionians who are now mathematically relegated. Dan Hiscocks crossed first, after the Club had won a penalty from their first put-in and kicked to touch, and when Harry Fry had once again hit Freddie Owen […]

Bill (known to his team-mates as Willie) Stevens was a Blackheath player in the 1960s and early 1970s, playing regularly in the 1st team and in the Blackheathens. He was a very talented full-back and prolific goal-kicker. He was […]

Blackheath 12 Cambridge 3

The conditions ranged from difficult to almost impossible in this contest.  At least that’s a sentiment Joe Tarrant might agree with. Early in the second period, and with a ferocious hail storm in his face, the unfortunate Cambridge, and former Blackheath, full-back lost his footing coming to meet Leo Fielding’s punt forward, and as the […]

Photos courtesy of Tony Fielding It rained and the wind blew. You may have noticed. If you made the journey to Hertfordshire and braved the elements, you were rewarded with a game that proved a huge slog, and one where both sides will feel unsatisfied with the end result. Bishop’s Stortford’s overall game management probably […]

Photos courtesy of Felix Ursell An enthralling game from start to finish, with both sides playing their part, using the fine conditions to good effect. Indeed, Albion outscored their hosts three tries to two, but for the second week running Mark Cooke produced a perfect kicking performance, the Club fly-half striking two conversions and five […]
