Market Rasen and Louth RFC recorded their first win since October 3 to move away from the bottom three in Midlands One East.

The Red and Greens followed their impressive display in a narrow defeat at high-flying Newbold with an important 46-20 win over Northampton Old Scouts on Saturday.

A first-half double from Dave Starling, a Tom Stephens try and Meehal Grint penalty put the hosts 22-13 up at half-time.

Old Scouts reduced the deficit to 22-20 as yellow cards reduced the hosts to 12 men.

But once back to full strength, scores from Chris Starling, Ollie Cole and a penalty try, as well as Tom Alldridge’s penalty, ensured Rasen and Louth emphatically ended a run of 11 straight league defeats.
