Midlands 1 East
Newbold 19 Kettering 21
If there was a doubt that Newbold could compete at this level, it was removed with this game, as they pushed the Northamptonshire side all the way, the final result only decided by a drop goal in injury time.
Newbold can, though, hold their heads up high, as this was a sterling team performance against one of the fancied teams in this league.
