DURSLEY NOMADS produced an incredible and heroic performance in the Bill Adams Cup Final and their last game of the season.

Cirencester spent the first 20 minutes camped in the Dursley half, but the Nomads defence could not be breached.

Eventually captain Phil Moorsom gave away a penalty in front of the posts which Cirencester converted.

Cirencester were able to run in two fairly soft tries in a ten minute spell.

Ryan Akhurst, Phil Bennett, Simon Thomas and Adam D’Arcy Wass consistently made themselves available as short runners and the Nomads started to make in roads in to the Cirencester half.

With Dursley camped in the opposition’s 22 the half ended 13-0 to the home side.

Playing down the hill in the second half the Nomads picked up from where they had left off.

However, Cirencester’s young backs took advantage of every opportunity and captain Moorsom missed a chance to flatten the centre, who went on to beat a couple of players and score a good individual try.

The referee penalised Cirencester for their persistent infringements and Pete Scott scored Dursley’s first try of the day.

The Nomads relentlessly attacked the opposition’s goal line and against the run of play Cirencester scored a breakaway try under the posts.

Within seconds Dursley were back on the Cirencester line and the referee awarded another penalty which an alert Tristan Moore took quickly and went over to score the final points of the game.

Moorsom said: “This was the best team performance of the season and certainly one of the best I have played in at Dursley.”
