Young Otters claim Mike Fry Cup with thrilling win over Crymych

THE final of the Mike Fry under 17 Cup was a rerun of the recent Griffiths 18 Cup with Narberth and Crymych once again squaring up against each other.

Crymych were desperate to overturn their defeat in the under 18 cup and came out firing on all cylinders.

The second half continued with no quarter given and after an exchange of penalties the game was poised at 16 13 to Narberth. There then came the deciding score when the well drilled Narberth pack set up a driving maul from a line out which Crymych were unable to stop and Yori Morgan scored.

Despite throwing everything at them, Narberth stood firm and finished victorious at 21-13. Outstanding for Crymych was Iestyn Wood, the ever threatening Macs Page and tireless flanker Aneirin Vaughan.
