JACK Green grabbed a hat-trick of tries as Alcester pulled off an emphatic 55-24 success over Coventry side Stoke Old Boys in Midlands 3 West South.

It proved a fitting spectacle for a bumper Kings Coughton crowd who had been attending the President's lunch.

Jamie Clarke claimed an early try which Max Biltcliffe converted.

And although Biltcliffe missed another penalty attempt, the momentum remained with Alcester as Stoke went down to 14 players following a deliberate knock-on.

Alcester put their extra man advantage to good use as winger Josh O'Connor went over to score before Ross Gard grasped a further try.

Stoke struck back with a try of their own before Green secured his opening try which also ensured Alcester of a bonus point.

O'Connor then added his second try before Green gathered the ball which had bounced off an opposing player's head to score under the posts.

Ed Gough then added a further try to give Alcester a healthy 43-7 lead at the break.

Stoke were much livelier at the start of second half exchanges and scored a try before Louis Smith crossed for Alcester.

Stoke struck with two more tries in as many minutes before the game simmered over with two red cards as O'Connor received his marching orders.

But there was still time for Green to complete his hat-trick and seal a significant success as Alcester stay clear of the drop zone.

WOODRUSH pulled off an impressive 43-21 triumph over Alcester's Second XV following a hastily arranged fixture after original opposition Atherstone cried off.

An even first half saw Sean Sudworth, Glynn Smith and Antony Cauvin all cross for tries which Sudworth converted.

Woodrush clinched some runaway tries in the final quarter to claim victory.

But there were some encouraging signs for Alcester with the return of Adam Turner and Sean Nash.
