Bletchley are five points clear at the top of the Southern Counties North division after a convincing 31-16 victory over Drifters on Saturday.

After back-to-back postponements, Bletchley shook off the cobwebs in fine style, having not played since February 1.

Bletchley’s squad was much changed from that day too, with a changed backline.

Bletchley played with the wind in the first half and managed to run in two converted tries. Phil Harman the beneficiary of scoring the first try from a great offload from scrum half Kevin Turnbull.

The second try was result of much sustained pressure by the forwards which resulted in a pushover try for Steve Allen to dot down. Both tries were converted.

Drifters managed a penalty kick to take the score into half time at 14-3.

Bletchley ran in a further three tries in the second half. Again great pressure from the forwards resulted in Adam fox crashing over for the third try - Harman converting.

The fourth try was the pick of the lot with Turnbull sidestepping his opposite number and cover defence to score in the corner, ensuring Bletchley picked up the bonus point.

The final try was scored by the ever dangerous Will Garret to take the score to 31-3.

Drifters manage to score two late tries and a penalty taking the score 31-16 but it was comfortable in the end for the visiting side.

Up next for Bletchley is a trip to Swindon College Old Boys - a team they racked up more than 100 points against earlier this season.
