Amber Valley won an an enthralling contest by the slimmest of margins on Saturday in the Midlands Four East (North) with a 78th minute penalty try to overcome local rivals Belper 27-26.

This was a game decided by fine margins, Belper having the better of the first half where they converted every chance they got through some well worked tries.

It was the home side that took the lead through a Shaun Dowdall penalty, but the lead was to change hands as both sides scored and then almost immediately conceded, with six tries in the first half.
