Old Yardleians RFC: Club News

News roundup as of Sept 17th 2007

Mon, 17 Sep 2007 12:00

With two players failing to turn up at kick off, Old Yardleians 1st XV had to reshuffle the team before the start of the game. Not a great performance by our boys and we lost 17-10 with David Langley getting our only try converted by Ben Honey who also added a penalty. Good to see Nick Allen make his 1st XV debut even if it was on the wing, normally he is a second row.

Other results in our league: Midlands 4 West (North) : Bishops Castle & O.V. 15, Harborne 7; Bournville 53, Burntwood 6; Old Halesonians 23, Willenhall 16; Tamworth 37, Selly Oak 0; Veseyans 21, Newcastle (Staffs) 0.

This Saturday the 1st XV go in search of their first league win against Willenhall away, kick off 3pm.

The combined 2nd/3rd XV went down to Claverdon to play their seconds. In an open game under the hot sun we made a great start scoring three tries to one in the first half. With nine players over forty and two of those over fifty-five we ran out of steam in the second half eventually losing 22-20 when the home side scored in the last minute.

Upcoming games - Saturday 22nd September

The Horton Twins have arrived!
Jack Horton and Hayley are now proud parents !!  Zak born at 7 minutes past 8 and Charlie at 10 minutes past are fine, no details of weights as yet as they were a bit early (not like Jack at all) and have been getting a bit of extra care, there is nothing to be concerned about.
