Greene: Win was very satisfying
BEACONSFIELD RFC can exhale after finally ending their winless run this season.
They did it in style with a 39-5 victory at Romford & Gidea Park last weekend to end a run of seven defeats and move them off the bottom of London 1 North.
Head coach Allan Greene said: “It was very satisfying, especially the way we played.
“It was one of those days when every just clicked.”
Beaconsfield eased into a 15-5 interval lead with Paul Trendell kicking five out of five penalties, but the game was put to bed within minutes of the restart as the visitors ran in three quick tries to put Romford on the canvas.
Greene said: “I said, ‘if we lose this now I’m going to resign’.
“But it was the first time we got parity up front, and that was the difference.”
After a run of near misses, getting over the line removed a sizeable monkey of their backs.
Greene said: “There was a sense of relief. The players are only human and you look at the win column.
“We’ve got some hard games coming up too and if it keeps dragging on and on...you don’t want to be thinking about going through an entire season without a win.”
Johnny Hughes, Dom Dones, Wayne Jackson and James Caldwell all crossed for Beaconsfield to set them up for Saturday's home clash with in-form Luton.
