Old Grovians are edged out again
Skipton 17, Old Grovians 12
Old Grovians may only have been promoted one division but sometimes it must seem like more than that to their director of rugby Martin Whitcombe.
After their initial 26-17 victory at Northallerton, Old Grovians have now picked up three successive losing bonus points in SSE Yorkshire Division Three.
“It is disappointing from our point of view that we are competing in every match but only coming away with a losing bonus point. We just can’t quite get over the line.
“We realise that in rugby terms we have been promoted but this season is about the club as a whole.
“Our second team played their first match in their league this weekend and it is about the whole club evolving and moving forward.”
Tries for Grovians came from Anthony Griffin and Chris Blackhall, Matt Worrall adding a conversion. Both tries came against what was a strong breeze.
