CAMP Hill got back to winning ways last weekend as they beat Aston Old Edwardians to retain the Teddy Parker Cup.

CAMP Hill got back to winning ways last weekend as they beat Aston Old Edwardians to retain the Teddy Parker Cup.

The visitors took the lead in the 11th minute when inside centre Jermaine Bernard collected a mis-kicked Aston clearance on halfway before weaving in and out of the home defence to score.

With the advantage of the considerable slope, the Shirley side went further ahead from a move instigated by turnover ball which set up an incisive break from outside centre Simon Edwards.

His pass found full back Lewys Richmond who was clearly delighted to register his first try for Camp Hill.

Edwards added the conversion and although Aston’s fly half Blake Bennett kicked a penalty, the Camp Hill kicker matched that soon afterwards allowing his side to turn round at 15-3.

After the break, Edwards improved and Dom Bentley touched down before scoring a converted try himself.

The hosts eventually managed to break through a determined Camp Hill rearguard when Bennett converted his own score but the damage had long been done as the visitors ran out worthy winners.
