Droitwich turned in another good display winning 27-15 against mid table old yardleians. 
In tough conditions and a really sticky pitch the visitors started the brighter scoring a try after the first two minutes. 
Spa knew they had to respond otherwise it would be another long afternoon, and to their credit they dug deep with a fine individual try by winger Sam Davenport, who produced a chip and chase and score under the posts. 
Spa now upped the tempo and a great team afford provided Dan Wilkinson with the ball on the wing to use his pace and power to beat three opposition defenders and score in the corner with Scott-Walker converting. 
With the wind with Yardley they kicked the corners and with a good field position they made it count when they replied with a try if their own before Chris Danks notched over a penalty kick for Spa to go into half time 17-10 up.
The second half started with Danks kicking spa into good attacking areas on the pitch but unfortunately for Spa they weren't winning their own set pieces which was not good for teir pursuit of the much needed bonus point, however good turnover ball by Luke Topping allowed Stephen Poke to gift quick ball to Sam Davenoort who again produced a brilliant solo try to run the length of the pitch and score under the post much to the rapture of the crowd with Ed Wormington adding the conversion and a penalty of his own to put Spa in a healthy lead. 
Spa now knew they needed one more  try for the bonus point, but to the visitors credit they dug deep and didn't give in. Russ Brown going close for Spa before Yardley scored a try of their own on the last play of the game. 
This was a much needed victory for Spa who continue to pick up points in their quest for survival. 
Double try scoring hero Sam Davenport added after the game that Spa are showing great bouncebackability and he hopes they continue this throughout the remainder of the season. 
Spa travel to Banbury on Saturday.
