MATTHEW Wilson has packed plenty into his 18 years.

For example, he has played hockey for England Under-17s in the School Games in Loughborough and appeared in Gold, a Bollywood film about hockey.

“I have been playing hockey since I was 12,” said the teenager.

Much of Gold, which is about the Indian hockey team’s title at the 1948 London Olympics – their first as a free country – was filmed in Bradford and elsewhere in Yorkshire and was released in India on August 15 to coincide with their 70th anniversary.

“The hockey sequences were filmed film at Sheffield Hallam University,” said Bradford Hockey Club member Wilson, who was sworn to secrecy about the film while it was in production.

Wilson, who appeared with hockey clubmate David Hunt in the extravaganza, has now turned his attention to rugby union and played alongside his 45-year-old dad Phil in this clash.

“I am taking a year out from education and a year out from hockey,” said Wilson junior, who has now appeared on the wing in all three of Baildon’s matches so far in Yorkshire Division Three.

Both Baildon and derby opponents Aireborough had lost their opening two fixtures, including home setbacks to Hemsworth, but the Jenny Laners gave themselves a real chance of their first success of 2018-19 by scoring two converted tries inside 12 minutes.

They had first use of the slope and threatened early via flanker Harrison Strauss and front-row forward Joe Robinson, with centre Matty Robinson taking the attack on only for it to end with a knock on.

In the tenth minute, the goose-stepping flanker Josh Strauss – brother of Harrison – ran at the Aireborough defence and this time the hosts made it pay, with fly half Ollie Waddington cutting through in style to score.

Matty Robinson added the conversion, and there was real concern in the visitors’ ranks two minutes later when Baildon second row Matt Fox went over the whitewash, with Matty Robinson again tagging on the extras.

Aireborough would not have been happy about their tackling or intensity at this stage but responded well, with former Bees prop Simon Hill going over in the right-hand corner in the 17th minute.

Nick Houldsworth’s conversion attempt didn’t quite have the legs up the slope but back came Baildon, with Matthew Wilson getting his debut try three minutes later.

“I followed the ball, supported the break and cut through to score before throwing the ball in the air,” said the try-scorer. “It was a better feeling than scoring a goal at hockey.”

However, back came long-time derby rivals Aireborough, with No 8 Chris Chapman getting a try in the 35th minute, and they were pressing for a third try just before half-time only to be penalised.

Baildon had conceded eight penalties to Aireborough’s one in the first half but had the first decent attack of the second half, with slightly-built winger Wilson chipping ahead and hacking on down the left touchline.

But the visiting pack always looked capable of inflicting some damage downhill and twice came close in the 52nd minute, first having the ball pinched off them and then being penalised after lock John Hill had driven the ball in.

There was no escape for the hosts seven minutes later, however, as the bulky presence of Simon Hill drove the ball in and Houldsworth took a lovely line to put flanker Micky Dolan – one of two colts in the Aireborough side, centre Jaime Sykes being the other – over.

Houldsworth’s conversion cut the deficit to 21-17 but the hosts then scored a crucial fourth try up the slope in the 67th minute that was inspired by the Strauss family.

With father Gary watching from the touchline alongside their dog Levi, Harrison Strauss went on a bullocking run inside Aireborough’s 22, and his brother Josh put in a choice hand-off that gave him just enough time and space to score.

Matty Robinson’s conversion attempt looked on course, only to fade at the last, but Baildon still had a precious nine-point advantage.

Aireborough then went into frantic mode and blew a golden opportunity in the 73rd minute when Chapman knocked on a pass that would have given replacement Jonny Mackey, who was standing behind him, an easy try.

Two minutes later, back-rower Mackey took matters into his own hand by tapping a penalty deep in Baildon territory and scoring a try.

Houldsworth was unlucky with the conversion attempt, which bounced out off the far post.

Baildon centre Luke Strauss – the third of the brothers – was sin-binned in the 80th minute as a victim of persistent team penalties but referee Shaun Cox (Durham Society) failed to take an additional host player off as scrums became uncontested,

This denied Aireborough of a major weapon but they had enough opportunities to win the match in stoppage time, with hooker Nick Jackson knocking on and Houldsworth running into fly half Ollie Catherall as a planned move went wrong.

“We are still looking at promotion,” said Matty Wilson, while Mackey said: “We were too frenetic but we are looking at the top six but need to bring the colts on.”
