Shoreham were the dominant team throughout the game but could not get the scores to secure the win even with 3 times crossing the Berkshire clubs line. but the defending team just managed to get a hand between the ball and the ground to save the try.

Bognor 0 Shoreham 6

Disappointed at not starting with a victory Shoreham made no mistake in the game against the hosts with powerful and pressurising rugby, winning almost every physical confrontation. DSC_0020

Tetbury 0 Shoreham 6

DSC_0029Shoreham took to the pitch for the last game knowing a high scoring victory would be enough to win the competition. With a measure of confidence and maturity the Shoreham team imposed their game on the opposition and were 4 – 0 to the good at half time and like lions in for the kill finished the opposition with 2 more tries immediately after half time to win and retain the Bognor Festival Trophy without conceding a try throughout.
