CHESHAM Stags U15s are league champions after beating the only other unbeaten side in the division.

Something had to give as they met Milton Keynes with the title on the line, and after edging them 19-17 in the cup they knew it would be a game of fine margins.

But, despite trailing 10-5 with 15 minutes remaining, Chesham finished with a flourish to take it 13-10.

Superb cover tackling from scrum half IIan Srotkin kept them in the game early on before a charge down late in the half led to the opening try for Alfie Lawson.

Milton Keynes began the second period strongly and two tries saw them take command, but Srotkin dived over to level the scores before a penalty late on from Jack Edhouse won it.

Coach Simon Harris said: “I had to wait 32 years to win my first league title.

"To win their league unbeaten is a huge testament to the character of the team.”

They can make it a double in the Plate Final later this month.

The squad is: Adam Blackwell, Alejo Andrade, Alfie Lawson, Andrew Youngs, Brandon Bryan, Christian Horridge, Corry Evans, Edmund Wignall, Finlay Wood, Ilan Srotkin, Jack Edhouse, James Chadda, Matthew Harris (capt), Julius Little, Oliver Smare, Pranavan Gunaratnam, Sam Brett, Sam Singer, Shiva Lakhani, Will Taylor, Will Thompson.
