NORTH Ribblesdale finally secured promotion to Yorkshire 1 on Saturday following a dominant victory away at Leeds Roundhegians on Saturday to round off a dazzling campaign.

In another potential banana skin, Ribb showed no nerves and scored two early tries from mercurial scrum half Jack Hutchinson. The first was a gem after a lovely breakout from Ben Coultherd and impressive interplay between young centres Callum Mathew and Freddy Spensley. Hutchinson did the hard supporting yards and was on hand to finish off a fine move. Tom Davidson added the extras as he did with all the tries to come.

The second came only moments later with Hutchinson showing his pace and guile to wrong-foot the defence and scamper over from 50 metres.

Next on the scoresheet was Ryan "Bus" Sumner who charged his way through three would be tacklers for a very popular score.

Ribb continued to dominate with the ball in hand and county U20s captain, who was to the fore throughout, Oliver Drew scored before the interval with a very impressive try from the half way line. This gave Ribb a 28- 0 interval and a bonus point.

The second half was a little slower in tempo but no less impressive. The visitors continued to dominate with the ball in hand and two further tries were scored through Sumner and skipper Alex Dew to complete a comprehensive win. Two late Roundhegians tries were just compensation for their endeavour in keeping the ball alive at every opportunity in a thoroughly entertaining game.

This result secured North Ribblesdale's promotion and with two games remaining, two wins are needed to secure the championship. This week sees the improving Bramley visit Grove Park for what is expected to be a very busy penultimate match.

The club have urged people to get down and support this exciting young side who appear destined for great things.
