Paddy Tighe began a backs more for Bradley Trickett to score in the corner, before Cameron Petrie and Owen Dew combined well for Dew to go under the posts and then convert.

Billericay began the second half with a breakaway try to close to within two points, but Park produced more pressure and Dew was driven over by his forwards, before converting once more.

Tom Chapman restored Park’s lead in the second half, with Sam Slatford converting, as Park finished 14-7 winners.
