VIDEO: Meyers on how Bury made a flying start to 2015

Bury St Edmunds Rugby Club’s Shaq Meyers gives his post-match reaction to Bury’s 34-5 home win over Amersham and Chiltern.

Meyers, a former Bedford Blues academy player of the year, who started out in Diss’ youth set-up, filled in out of position for Kieran Black in the back row, but managed to score two quick tries early in the second half to put the result beyond doubt at 34-0.

The 21-year-old spoke to deputy sports editor Russell Claydon following the victory, as rugby returned to the Greene King IPA Haberden after the festive break, saying their hard work in training had paid off.

The local football programme, including Bury Town’s scheduled home game, was wiped out by the wet weather, but the region’s professional sides had mixed fortunes FA Cup third round.

Ipswich Town secured a replay with Premier League high flyers Southampton following a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s.

Now Thurston-based Darren Ambrose opened the scoring after 19 minutes with his first goal for the Tractor Boys in 12 years after returning to the club this season, before Morgan Schneiderlin levelled in the 33rd minute.

In contrast, rivals Norwich City suffered a shock exit as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat away at League One outfit Preston North End.

On-loan striker Paul Gallagher broke the deadlock in the 71st minute before doubling his tally with five minutes remaining to knock the Canaries out.
