Old Yardleians RFC: Club News

Flat as a pancake (that Peter has sat on)

Tue, 26 Apr 2011 04:48

The end of the season gets nearer. The ground would be hard and dry enough for cricket if anybody actually wanted to play the game.

I even watched some rugby on the box. Wasps planned a big day out at Twickers with all kinds of acts for the fans. Trouble is they forgot to play as Bath's runners destroyed the London side with style.

If they were horses in the national you would say they had fallen at the last fence. Still playing 'beautiful football' but also letting in soft goals and trying to make ten passes in the box before scoring. Can Wenger go, 'no', can Cesc go, 'yes' - at a price.


Tour, as promised, no news to tell.

This coming Saturday 30th April

1st XV   v   Exiles     away
Dev XV  v  Wolverhampton  home
3rd XV   v   Harborne 3rds  home

Social etc.

Dates for your diaries, phones or, in Sid's world, your filofaxes.

Friday 29th April: Royal knees up (or p_ss up) adults only, disco and buffet all for a fiver.

Friday 6th May: AGM at the club 7pm.  Give it a go, experience not essential, thick skin vital.

Saturday 7th May: President's day.  Details to follow but likely to include drinking and rugby.

Friday 13th May: Annual Dinner at the club, guest speaker Martin Corry who I feel sure will provide controversial tales from behind the scenes at Leicester, England etc. Tickets from anyone on the committee.

We all make mistakes

Captain Slow spotted a score error on the website of a local club who play in green/white.  In a recent game at their place our Vandals XV (3rds) defeated their 2nds - not the other way round.  Probably a typing error.
