WINGER Conor Giggle scored a hat-trick as Malvern RFC ended their season in style with an 11-try win over Droitwich at Spring Lane.

The season finale was dedicated to club legend Richard Hobbs on his 150th appearance for Malvern and they celebrated in a convincing fashion to conclude their successful campaign.

Giggle crossed three times after the break following first-half tries from Joseph Allen (2), Franco Bent, Arran Carr and Alex Wheeler.

Lewis Hardiman added two more in the second-half to complete an impressive personal haul of 18 points before the final score was left to Hobbs, much to the joy of those in attendance.

Malvern ended the season in sixth place in the Regional 2 West Midlands table with 13 wins and nine defeats in their 22 matches.

With the sun coming down at the start of the game, a flowing move and some good hands from hooker Glenn Potter put Allen in for the first try which was quickly followed by the second of the day as Bent powered over.

Bent then set up second-row Carr for try number three before Allen scored his second of the afternoon to wrap up the bonus-point.

Droitwich did manage a try of their own after a spell of pressure in the Malvern half but the home side had the final say of the first period as scrum-half Wheeler scampered over after a quick-tap penalty. 

Hardiman added two conversions and the halftime score read a convincing 29-5 in favour of the home side. 

The speedy winger Hardiman then scored in classic style shortly after the break as he ghosted past a number of Droitwich defenders before racing in under the posts.

The tries kept coming for Malvern and Giggle finally got in on the act as good work from the backs put the winger away in the corner before a big 'Ash-Splash' dive saw him touch down. 

Giggle was again on the other end of a good move to score his second, which was followed by another for Hardiman after a brilliant burst through the defence from fly-half Adam Dixon.

The weather began to take a horrible turn as the rain and wind forced some people back into the clubhouse but it would not stop Malvern from adding to their score.

Giggle completed his hat-trick for the penultimate try and there was a poetic ending to the game as Hobbs muscled his way over from the base of the scrum to cap off his 150th appearance for the club.
