Alcester 9-3 Stoke Old Boys
Midlands Division Four (West)
ALCESTER moved into second place in Midlands Division Four (West) after young centre Jamie Harland’s accuracy with the boot earned a hard-fought win against fellow promotion-chasers Stoke OB.
Though it was hardly the try-fest that has summed up matches at Kings Coughton this season, it was nonetheless a vital victory.
Harland booted all the Alcester points with three penalties in a game which featured six yellow cards.
Alcester can enjoy their festive break before they open 2017 with a huge contest against table-toppers Bromyard at Kings Coughton on Saturday 7th January.
Both teams have won nine out of ten matches, but Bromyard have a two points lead.
Stoke OB lie third, two points behind Alcester.
