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.
