Charlie Amesbury signed off from Rosslyn Park in style with a brace to spark a 50-19 win against Cinderford at The Rock.
After conceding three tries in six minutes, Park had six different scorers to secure a third-place finish in National League One.

After a close nine minutes, Cinderford scored against the run of play as Ed Bogue found a gap under the posts. They doubled the lead three minutes later as Frame found space on the left before Reuben Norville ran clear on 16 minutes.

Park were given a lifeline, though, on the half-hour when Dan Broady was sin-binned for collapsing a maul. And the home side made it count, Hugo Ellis finishing off a 15-man maul seven minutes later.

The gap was cut to seven points in the last play of the half, Joe Munro picking up Jack Gash’s delicious offload. Park continued their momentum after the restart as Stewart Maguire powered over two minutes in for the equaliser.

And the lead was secured on 47 minutes by Ellis’ mauling as Amesbury ran through on the right five minutes later. Top scorer Benji Marfo put on a show after 63 minutes, picking up a kick before running clear on the left.

Oli Grove and Amesbury added the finishing touches for Park in the last five minutes.
