Thatcham RFC completed an impressive season with a 32-18 win over Beaconsfield on Saturday, ensuring they finish fifth in the Southern Counties North.

Beaconsfield fought back with their own converted try, with another penalty for each side making the score 13-10 in Thatcham’s favour at the break.
Another penalty shortly after the restart got the hosts level, but it would all change in the last quarter.
Marty Butler profited from a Beaconsfield mistake to help set up Simon Niven for a try, before Butler again assisted in a score, this time for Liam Rowland.
And Thatcham finished the game off with Danny Shaughnessy running two thirds of the pitch to touch down, although Beaconsfield did manage to get a consoltation effort with two minutes left.
