RUGBY UNION: Bicester on the climb

First published in Rugby

Bicester can look forward to derbies with Alchester again next season after securing the second promotion spot.

They are guaranteed to finish runners-up in BB&O Premier Division after being handed a walkover by Farnham Royal, who were unable to field a side.

Although Hungerford can match Bicester’s 75 points tally, they would still finish below them on games won.

Alchester will finish above Wallingford in Southern Counties North after a 36-5 win over them in their final match of the season.

Dan Kimber opened the scoring after a driving maul, Tom Miles adding a conversion and a penalty.

Wallingford replied with a Ben Selwood try, but Alchester got a second via Souava Rakikiki and had others disallowed for forward passes.

However, Tom Barnes, Tom Iles and Adam White completed the visitors’ try tally, while Miles finished with four conversions.
