Bury Town’s recent strong form in the Ryman League Premier Division continued on Saturday as they settled for a share of the spoils away at Leiston.

The result leaves Richard Wilkins’ side in seventh place but with games in hand on some of the sides above them.

Elsewhere, Needham Market’s stuttering form in Division One North continues as they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils away at Wroxham.

Danny Bloomfield’s 25th minute penalty had given the Marketmen the lead but Ross Durrant struck just four minutes later to snatch a draw and condemn Danny Laws’ charges to a sixth match without victory.

However, it was a brighter weekend for Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club who returned to London One North action after the Christmas break with a comprehensive 80-5 success away at Romford and Gidea Park. It was Gavin Hogg’s side 26th consecutive victory and keeps them well on track for the league title.
