A YOUTHFUL Chinnor side came out 24-18 winners against Bridgwater and Albion after coming from behind to take the spoils.

Sam Angell made his starting debut for Chinnor and Andy Berry at tight head made his first (and significant) appearance for the home side.

Despite going 7-0 down in the first 10 minutes, Chinnor fought back well, gaining a penalty try which was, converted by Cathcart to level the score at 7-7.

And Chinnor went ahead in the 37th minute when a barnstorming run by Chinnor’s Vickers was halted just shy of the try line.

The first score of the second half came from the visitors when Williams slotted a penalty goal for a Chinnor ruck infringement.

A well worked Bridgwater lineout saw the ball switched to a runner down the tram tracks who flicked the ball inside to open side Burnell for a straight run to the line without a Bridgwater player being touched.
