Eton Manor suffered their first loss of the London One North season last weekend and captain Tryson Goodchild is determined to see them bounce back against North Walsham on Saturday.

The Norfolk outfit travel down to New Wilderness in good spirits after earning an impressive win against Chingford last time out.

The Vikings are notoriously bad travellers, though, and haven’t picked up an away win this season. But Manor will not be taking them lightly at the weekend.

“Yes it is crucial we bounce back this weekend,” said Goodchild.

“We are hoping the Letchworth defeat is our only slip up because we are two points behind Colchester now.

“We can’t afford any more and North Walsham are a good side at home, even if they don’t travel well. We can’t get complacent,
especially after last weekend.”

Walsham have an impressive home record and beat Jamie Connors team last year.

However, that defeat last year doesn’t mean Manor want revenge.

“There has been no mention of revenge, only about getting back on it this weekend,” added Goodchild.

Manor lost 17-11 to Letchworth at Legends Lane last Saturday, after winning their first 11 matches of the campaign.

Harry Tustanowsky scored Manor’s only try, but Goodchild admitted they let their standards slip during the defeat, adding: “We didn’t really turn up. We were below par and it was probably the worst we have played all season.

“We upped our game in the second half, but we left it too late.”

Although Manor struggled to find their best form, they had a huge opportunity to win the match from the last play of the game.

Prop Josh Permale was ajudged to have been held up on the line, though, and the referee awarded a five-metre scrum instead of a try.

Goodchild added: “We got better in the second half, in the last 20 minutes and turned it on.

“In the end we were quite unlucky not to get the victory. Josh got held up and the referee gave a five-metre scrum, but Josh was sure he got the ball down.

“If Josh had gone over we would have won because it was an easy kick for Callum McKie.

“We were gutted, but we need to make sure we bounce back against North Walsham now.”
