Bishop's Stortford forward Tom Lewis delighted with clean sheet in National League 1 victory over Canterbury




Tom Lewis was delighted with Bishop's Stortford's performance as they powered to a 43-0 victory over National League 1 basement boys Canterbury.

The forward, who scored two tries and helped the hosts keep a clean sheet at Silver Leys, was named the Price Bailey-sponsored man of the match on Saturday.

It was Stortford's third home win on the bounce and they extended their unbeaten run to three matches.

They now face a trip to second-placed Rosslyn Park this Saturday and another success could see them move into the top half of the table.

"Even though they're bottom of the league they fought all the way through," said Lewis at the final whistle after they inflicted a 13th straight defeat on the visitors from Kent.

"They put us under pressure early and to keep them out all the way through the game was good.

"We just tried to forget about the league table. Everybody in the league comes out strong no matter who they are or what position they are.

"We knew we needed to start right from the beginning and go all the way through, which is what the boys did.

"We had a bit of a shaky start with our home games, but now we're winning games and hopefully it's all looking up."

After this weekend's trip to Rosslyn Park, Stortford complete 2019 with a home match against Sale and a derby at Cambridge.

"We're taking every game as it comes and let the results speak for themselves," said Lewis, who joined from Peterborough Lions in the summer.

"We had a draw the week before so we've not been beaten for three weeks now.

"Hopefully we can keep that run going at least until Christmas. We'll try to push on after that and then we'll see where we are."
