EVESHAM Rugby Club saved their best for last in a crowd-pleasing season finale.

Needing a win to avoid relegation from Midlands Two West (South), they achieved their goal and more.

A mighty 62-17 bonus-point victory over visiting Rugby St Andrews propelled them up the table to finish eighth in the final standings.

It has been a good achievement for a young, developing side.

Evesham were rampant in the first half of an open game, running in six tries in a blaze of glory before the break.

There were scores for Dan Humpston, Tom Williams, Liam Berry, Wilf Watson, Joshua Sands and Fred Hopper.

Williams converted all but one and added a penalty to leave Evesham in total control at 43-5 up at half-time.

The visitors held their own for periods of the second half, scoring twice.

But Evesham finished strongly with further tries for Berry, Hopper and Watson and two more conversions for Williams.

Berry's brace on the day saw him finish as the team's leading try scorer for the season.

Evesham seconds secured top spot in Midlands Reserve League Division Three and promotion with a 45-5 victory at Ludlow.

Pershore offered hosts Burbage a walkover as the Vale side finished fifth in Midlands Four West (South).

Bredon Star had a home walkover against Southmead to end up second from bottom in Gloucestershire One.
