Essex One: Writtle Wanderers 7 May & Baker 52

May & Baker continued their marvellous form in the Essex One last weekend with a crushing victory over bottom of the table Writtle Wanderers.

Bakers ran in eight tries against the basement boys of the division to earn an emphatic 45-point success.

Coach Lewis Pruce helped himself to a brace of tries and the visitors were also awarded a penalty try.

Joe Parkin, captain Andy Yarrow, Dan Dray, Josh Cook and Tommy Stimson also went over to maintain their seven-point lead at the top of the Essex One over rivals Upper Clapton.

Bakers skipper was pleased with the victory and the praise his side received after the match from the opposition.

“In parts we were really clinical and in other parts we weren’t as much,” admitted Yarrow.

“But a good proportion of the game was ours and Writtle were very complimentary afterwards.

“They said we had a really good structure and we have been working hard on that over the past few weeks and they complimented our scrum half.”

Yarrow is pleased with Bakers progress, but was frustrated to concede a poor try to Writtle late in the encounter.

He added: “We are definitely moving in the right direction now and we played really well for large periods of the game, but we gave away a silly try.

“It was a sloppy one to concede and in the last play of the game, but overall a good win and it was a game where there were moments of brilliance and other moments that weren’t so brilliant.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
