BRIDPORT Under-12s fell to a 10-5 defeat at the hands of Yatton RFC despite a valiant display.

The Seasiders looked determined to replicate last year’s victory over Yatton, but were unable to do so.

Tries from Jude Wright, Sid Atkinson, Harry Brown, Harry Courtice and Daniel Batorski made a real game of it, with the man of the match award going to Dillon Pirus for his hard work, perseverance, communication and commitment throughout the game.

The Tackler of the match award was given to newcomer Sid Atkinson for his determination throughout.

A special mention must also go to Jevan Hampton-Rumbold who carried on playing, despite fracturing his wrist in a maul during the match.
