CALDY secured a famous 24-19 victory over second placed Doncaster Knights as the Ravers dominated the professional outfit for the majority of the afternoon.

Caldy raced out and scored the opening try in the eighth minute after a kick forward found Nick Royle after a great cross field pass allowing the veteran in to score.

It took until the midway point of the first half for Doncaster to play their best part of the game, kicking the ball in the corner and from the resulting lineout the ball got to George Roberts to score but the conversion was missed meaning Caldy kept the lead.

The game was tight in the midfield but after a penalty Caldy went through a number of phases which opened up the space for captain JJ Dickinson to slide in to score.

Into the second half and Caldy went from strength to strength spending the majority of the time in the Knights' half.

An error in the midfield saw the visitors peg Caldy back to a two point lead on 52 minutes but this only went on to inspire the Wirral side and saw the Knights lose their discipline and saw players sent to the sin bin.

A penalty from Ben Jones gave Caldy a five point lead but the crowd were concerned of a counter attack.

Caldy did not allow the visiting side to get into their half of the field to the delight of the home supporters and not to those who had travelled across from Yorkshire.

The points were secured for Caldy with five minutes remaining when Ollie Hearn finished off a memorable move to the delight of those on the bank. Ollie Fox scored a consolation for Knights in the final minute.

After the final whistle, head coach, Matt Cairns, said “It is an unbelievable result and one of the best performances, if not the best, at my time at the club”.

Caldy's next match is on January 13 when they travel to league leaders Ealing Trailfinders, the Ravers will go to the capital full of hope having beaten their hosts at Paton Field.
