Match Report: Paviors 18 – 6 Glossop

Paviors win secures place in Notts, Lincs and Derby Cup Final


Notts, Lincs & Derby Semi-final

13 May 2023

This weekend Arnold’s Paviors RFC booked their place in the final of the Notts, Lincs and Derby Cup Final by defeating a spirited Glossop RFC XV at Burntstump Hill.

On a lovely afternoon and on a pacey looking pitch, both teams entered the fray with plenty of vim and vigour.

Glossop opened the scoring with a penalty, before Paviors struck back with a Matt Molyneux try and a George Billam penalty on 25 minutes.

A further Glossop penalty saw a half time score of 8-6 in favour of the home side. 

Glossop made a bright start to the second half, before Paviors pressure began to tell.

Phil Eggleshaw broke through to score on 55 minutes and with the conversion and a further Billam penalty Paviors took what proved to be an insurmountable lead at 18-6. 

Paviors now take on Dronfield RFC at Lady Bay on May 27 in the final game of the season.
