Central Park firsts had last weekend off, but seconds picked up first win of term

Dagenham return to action in Essex Canterbury Jack One on Saturday when they make the relatively short trip to Old Brentwoods.

The Central Park club were able to rest up last weekend having had a blank week in the league.

While Dagenham’s first team were resting, their seconds were able to record a first win of the season in the Shepherd Neame Essex Merit League Division Six West.

The Central Park outfit were able to cruise to a 61-37 success at home to local rivals Ravens.

Dagenham dominated at the scrum and ran some great lines in the first half to hold a 41-10 advantage at the interval.

Ravens came out all guns blazing in the second half, but the hosts managed to repel most of the pressure and added some more scores of their own.

Jonny Smith, Iain Fergie, Will Evans, Ian Drake, Emilio Navarro, Scott Ballard and Gary Francis all scored tries in the emphatic win for the seconds.
