It was North Combination Cup Finals Day at Kingsholm on Sunday and, for the first time in a number of years, the trophies headed in three different directions.
Coney Hill were hoping to secure their sixth North Gloucestershire Combination Cup treble, and things started well as their 3rd XV won the Glanville Cup with a last gasp penalty to defeat Chosen Hill 16-14.
However, their 2nd XV were comprehensively beaten by Old Cryptians, who lifted the Molson Coors Junior title. Old Cryptians lifted the Cup for the first time since 1974.
And Matson snatched the Worthington Senior Cup from Coney Hill's hands with a last-gasp Vince Lanciano try in a hard fought encounter.
This is the 28th time that Matson have won the Cup, but the first time since 2001 with Coney Hill dominating in recent times.
Dave Booth, NGC President, offered his thanks to Gloucester Rugby for allowing the Combination the use of the stadium ,as well as main sponsors Worthington Coors for their continued sponsorship of the 1st and 2nd XV cup competitions.
He added his thanks to all who helped out during the day to once again to make this a very successful event.
Kingsholm will play host to the inaugural Mitsubishi Motors Hybrid Cup on Sunday 9 October (kick off 3pm), where the Gloucester Rugby Heroes meet the Salford Red Devils Legends in a cross-code exhibition clash with legends of both games set to grace the Kingsholm turf again.
A desperately disappointing afternoon for Gloucester who, despite dominating possession and territory, were guilty of failing to make the most of it against a resolute Newcastle defence before the visitors pounced to snatch the win in the second half.
Mariano Galarza and Ross Moriarty are both back from injury as Gloucester entertain the Newcastle Falcons at Kingsholm in the Aviva Premiership (Saturday, kick off 3pm). Willi Heinz will skipper the side from scrum-half.
A week after opening their Aviva Premiership A League account with a win over Saracens Storm, Gloucester United were unable to repeat the dose at Harlequins on Monday evening going down to a 22-8 defeat.
