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.
Gloucester Rugby kick off their Aviva Premiership campaign at Northampton Saints on Friday evening, and then return home to entertain the same opponent in the A League at Kingsholm on Monday September 8th.
Gloucester Rugby travelled to West Wales for their third and final preseason game ahead of the start of the Aviva Premiership next week. The Scarlets were the opposition and Gloucester left Parc y Scarlets on the wrong end of a 29-24 scoreline.
