Fylde 9, Blaydon 5

Fylde produced their most determined performance of the season to end the 10-match unbeaten run of Blaydon in National League One.

They won by three penalties to a try by Blaydon.

All Fylde’s points came from the boot of fly-half Chris Johnson.

Flanker Keith Laughlin claimed the Blaydon try.

Despite having the wind behind them in the second half, Blaydon could not break down the stubborn Fylde defence.

And by the end it was the Fylde pack that was on top in the tight exchanges.

Fylde will take great credit from ‘nilling’ Blaydon in the second half.

Fylde led 6-5 at the break.
