Story posted on

Devizes got off to a bright start with two tries from kick and chase in the first 10 minutes of the half.

Buoyed by this they worked to keep the pressure on the home team but conceded a penalty at the close of the half. Simon Foster putting Melksham on the scoreboard 3-12.

A spirited half time talk from captain Callum Hurn brought a focused Melksham team back to the pitch. They didn’t have to wait long before Joe Hargreaves received quick ball at centre to show his strength and step to evade the defence. Simon Foster kicking the conversion.

Melksham continued to control the half despite losing a man to the sin bin, Jack Briggs powering in with a pushover try in his debut game. Foster adding the extras. The resurgent Melksham topped off the game with winger Callum Gillard, also on his debut, passing to Phil Stone to score and seal the game. Foster adding the conversion, the final score 24-12 to Melksham.
