Playing the second of their pre-season matches Cinderford were given a tough workout by a very good
Old Centralians side.
The match was played over four sessions and it was the Gloucester team who opened the scoring with a well taken try,which was converted. Cinderford levelled at 7-7 when they were awarded a penalty try,which Danny Trigg converted. The visitors continued to impress though and soon regained the lead with another converted try. A lineout catch and drive then saw the home forwards go over for a try which went unconverted.
In the final session Cinderford went ahead when Ben Sparks touched down, then Alex Frame broke clear to score a try, both of were converted by Trigg. Old Centralians scored third try in the closing minutes, but the home side had just done enough.
