BECCLES narrowly beat Crusaders to move up to fourth in London Division 4 North-East. A try with the last play of the game saw Beccles win 13 -12.
Beccles have been without a coach this season. In December Ian Rees came to the club to coach the team and since then Beccles have won three games in a row.
Beccles started the game poorly and Crusaders soon punished some weak Beccles tackling to score a converted try. Beccles got their act together and began to camp in the Crusaders half.
After a period of pressure the ball was fed down the line to Williamson who cut through the tacklers to score. Murray missed the conversion but soon added a penalty.
Beccles continued to press but the Crusaders winger managed to intercept a loose pass and had a free run in to score. The conversion was missed.
Crusaders started the second half well and put Beccles under pressure. The Beccles defence was solid and Crusaders couldn't find a way through.

Beccles began to dominate territory and possession as the half went on and were looking for a try to win the game. The backs were looking dangerous, led by Musker McIntyre MoM Rowney.
A number of drives by the forwards took Beccles close to the line. The ball was quickly recycled and some quick passing down the line put Geyser free to crash over for the score and put Beccles in to the lead. Murray shaved the wrong side of a post with a difficult conversion attempt and the final whistle blew with Beccles winning by 13-12.
Beccles entertain Ipswich tomorrow, hoping for a win to maintain their promotion bid. Kick-off is 2.15pm, spectators welcome.
