Andover U16s sponsored by Woodstock Plumbing Supplies travelled to Ellingham & Ringwood to try and bounce back from the previous weekends disappointment.
Andover started at full speed and looked determined from the outset and were soon rewarded when skipper George Lishman scored out wide after 5 minutes, Doug Armes added to this shortly afterwards to give Andover a 0-10 lead. The visitors were in their stride now and dominated the set piece and were able to attack constantly and with Louie Smith adding to the total Andover were 15 points up with as many minutes played. The backs who were enjoying plenty of good possession provided from excellent forwards play then scored the try of the match with the ball going wide and when Matuesz Palmer was held short of the line he was able to offload to the supporting Harvey Newton who scored in the corner. George Ward then scored from broken play and Sam Hamilton Scored 2 trys in quick succession to give Andover a half time lead of 0-35.
The visitors started the 2nd half in the same fashion and strong running from Thomas Walker, and when excellent tackling in the midfield by Kieron Bush and Oliver Greenwood turned over the ball Jamie Sarginson was able to add to the score,
Andover continued to apply pressure on the home sides try line with Sam Dougherty constantly pressuring the ball carrier, however quick ball from E&R gave the home side their first points of the game with a well deserved try by their winger, From the resulting kick off good work at the breakdown by Harvey Maloney and Takeio Wareham gave Andover a penalty which was quickly taken and Alfie Appleton got A try which was converted to make a final score of 5-47.
