Camp Hill 22 Burton 18

CAMP Hill followed up their Teddy Parker Cup win with a narrow victory over high-flying Burton last weekend.

CAMP Hill followed up their Teddy Parker Cup win with a narrow victory over high-flying Burton last weekend.

Their Midlands 2 West survival bid was given a major boost as Jermaine Bernard sprinted in to open the scores and Simon Edwards added the conversion.

The fly-half was unable to improve a score from left wing Steve Leach though who ran onto a chip through from Edwards prior to diving over in the corner.

Ian Gilmour added a penalty for the visitors before Camps were awarded a penalty try after the break which was converted by Edwards.

Jon Philliskirk’s touched down for Burton and a try from left wing Lewis Brooks was improved by Gilmour and suddenly the visitors were just seven points behind.

A Gilmour penalty in the 75th minute certainly tested the nerves of the home support and although the referee played twelve minutes of stoppage time, there was now no way through Camps’ solid defence as they ran in deserved winners.

Tomorrow Camps travel to Dudley Kingswinford (3.00p.m.).
