Newbold beat Old Laurentians 37-17 to take the Midlands 2 West (South) title and gain promotion as champions.

But OLs have a second chance of promotion next Saturday (April 25) at Fenley Field when they host Old Saltleians. It would be great if the two clubs could continue their rivalry in Midlands 1 next season.

See Thursday’s Advertiser for both clubs’ views of the game - and more pictures
