Sun, 01 Sep 2013 07:08

Win some, lose some.

First XV slip to defeat in 'shield' as Ledbury sneak a late victory.
In Jake's report he mentions our tries, one from an impressive driving maul which culminated in the ref awarding a penalty try and a quality break and powerful run to the line from Andrew Pearce. A drop goal from Lee Purdy and some kicks from Jake himself.  As the experts seem to say we must concentrate our efforts on the league.  Also, please, no more holidays or weddings in season time.

Development XV  too strong for Handsworth as skipper Luke leads from the front. I think the score was about 41-7 to us but still awaiting Luke's report.

This coming Saturday

If all goes to plan. we aim to field four teams. something we have not managed for a long time.

A Blast from the Past
Steve's party sees many faces from the past.  Ears still recovering!
It was good to see so many stars from days gone by.  To  name just a few,  Hilton Smith, (The Earl of Salop),  Brian Wood (Jeweller supreme), Denzil, Dave (Spurs) Broadfield, Toff, Dick and Gwen and many others.

And Finally
Still too early to be certain, but the boys are looking good and I think Spurs got away lightly.
