Peck played for both clubs and has family still currently involved at Walden, having passed away in 2012.

And Walden claimed a 24-14 victory over Ongar under-17s, who had dominated the early exchanges.

Walden settled into the game and created a chance for Beau Longaretti to power through tackles and score under the posts.

But Ongar levelled just before half time with a converted try, before Alex Keys kicked a penalty to put Walden 10-7 up.

Number eight Olly keys went over from the base of a scrum to widen the gap, with Alex Keys pouncing on a mistake to add another try.

Ongar replied with their second try as consolation, as Josh Shear took the man of the match award for Walden after a tireless display in attack and defence in a very fitting contest.
