CALDY secured their first home win of the season against nearest rivals Chester in a tight match that saw Gavin Roberts become the club's top point scorer of all time with a career total of 1577 points.

Caldy made a bright start to the match pressurising the Chester defence from the kick off.

After an infringement in the scrum by Chester, Caldy took the lead through a penalty from Roberts which was doubled just three minutes later and was unlucky not to make it three out of three at the midway point of the half hitting the post from over 40 meters.

The game then became very tight with both sides unable to take advantage of each others handling errors with the visitors struggling with their kicking game and at the lineout.

With five minutes left on the clock Chester scored in the corner after a successful lineout and cross field move that was finished off by winger Sean Green.

In the second half Caldy continued to press and a great flowing move saw the reliable Nick Royle score in the corner with Roberts adding the extras.

The game then became scrappy and the visitors frustration boiled over as their kicking game evaded them again.

With ten minutes left Caldy broke through again and after a good flowing move Tom Sanders crashed over, with record breaker Roberts unlucky not to slot away the extras.

The visitors got a consolation try with two minutes remaining through Harrison Vare to make the last few minutes a tense watch for the home supporters.

Caldy are in second place behind Stourbridge.

They travel to Sheffield Tigers next week who also have a one hundred percent record after beating Scunthorpe 31-27 on Saturday.

The game at Hathersage Road kicks off at 3pm this Saturday (September 21).
