Bourne RUFC
Deepings RUFC
Bourne player-coach Dave Maudsley and his side gave themselves the ideal platform for Saturday’s Midlands Junior Vase final at home to Eccleshall with a dominant display against Deepings.

Meanwhile, former captain Guy Cunningham admitted that Deepings had been “played off the park” in their worst defeat since a 50-0 hiding from Wellingborough Old Grammarians in October 2015. The only surprise on Saturday was that they kept 15 men on the pitch when, at times, their discipline and motivation to make it three derby wins this season threatened to boil over. Cunningham said: “We concentrated more on the fact that it was a derby too much and the adrenalin pumping through some of the players forced us into making poor decisions which Bourne capitalised on. “Our discipline was poor which inflated the scoreline but Bourne played us off the park and we need to congratulate them on their promotion.

Cunningham said: “We’ve got some tough games but we can still come away from the season with some silverware.”
