Buffaloes bulletin: Bramley off to a winning start

Bramley Buffaloes' Tom Langton.

By Paul Abraham

It was a win-win Saturday for Bramley Buffaloes last week as the first team kicked off their league season with a fine 14-0 victory over New Earswick in a defensive-orientated 80 minutes. 

Bramley’s points came from tries from Tom Langton, Keiran McFarlane and Cameron McLachlan while Connor McGill added a goal.  Preventing the opposition from scoring proved that the pre-season fitness work and defensive drills had enabled the team to hit the season running.

The Buffaloes’ second team progressed to the next round of the YML Shield, beating Guiseley Rangers 42-24 in a very entertaining game. 

Try scorers for the “Buffs” were loose forward Cameron Leeming crossing for an impressive hat-trick of tries, Liam Leather with two and others from Keiran McFarlane, Ben Blanchard and sub, Kyle Briggs.  Tom Jenkins added four goals with Kyle Briggs adding the other goal.

Yorkshire men’s league results

  • York Acorn 32 Upton 22
  • Elland/Greetland 4 Dodworth Miners 16

This week’s opponents

The first of two successive away games begin as the Buffaloes visit Dodworth Miners in what should be a tight and entertaining game with both sides going into the game after winning their previous match.

The Barnsley based Miners run teams covering 11 age groups and are a very progressive community club and so the “Buffs” will need to be at the top of their game to bring the points back to West Leeds.
