Old Yardleians RFC: Club News

The only way is ?

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 12:00

We started the league season in such a manner that things can only improve. Droitwich are a good team but surely not by that margin. This Saturday we get the opportunity to do something about it. Not an easy challenge as Earlsdon are a fairly strong outfit. Kick Off 3.00

 The 2nds/3rds plus anyone who turned up with kit convincingly beat Spartans 3rds.  It's a long tunnel but hopefully there will be light shining through sooner rather than later.

If you are anywhere near Tidbury Green on Sunday Morning, expect traffic congestion as we have close to a million young rugby stars in action, mostly at our club. Come and watch but give parking a thought.

The 90th Anniversary Dinner Dance.

This Saturday, at the Village Hotel, over 100 guests will gather for a meal, possibly a Babycham or two maybe a dance and definitley a lot of stories about the 'Good Old Days'. Latest news is that Peter has booked the last remaining place. A bit of advice, get there early if you want any food as our star prop will be hovering.

What do you do when you are too old to play rugby?
Simple, you join the Old Yards strollers. This week the group consisted of Myself, Steve Price, Shannon, Robin Sadler and ex Head of Religion at Tommies, Paul Toal. A local stroll culminating in a warm down in the Sharmans Cross. 
A brief return to childhood featured the chance to go on the zip wire. With myself at a fit 13 stone, Robin at 17 stone and Shannon at 18 stone, the question was, would the wire survive? answers to follow later.
