PETE Allen spearheaded last Saturday’s “epic” Uttoxeter victory over Burntwood according to director of rugby Donald Hayes.
He said: “It’s a reversal from the Bloxwich loss.
“The team put in an epic performance. It was powerful and intelligent and was spearheaded by the return of Pete Allen.
“Allen gives us a lot of forward momentum and helps create a platform for our attacking phases.
“We executed our chances well in the first half and the lead we established carried us over for a full five-point victory against a quality side.
“The younger crop of players seem to be coming good. If we can sort out our away form then we will be looking good for next season and should be pushing into the top half of the table.”
Uttoxeter are not in action this weekend. They resume their Midlands Three West (North) campaign away to Eccleshall on Saturday, April 5.
