It is with great sadness that the club has to announce the passing of a great club member, Chris Bracey, father of one of our players Cam Bracey. Cam joined us from Rochdale in 2012 and spent 5 seasons in the Youth teams before graduating to the Senior Club, playing regularly in the 2s and 3s. Chris was ever present during this time and our thoughts are with Cam and his family. RIP Chris Bracey.

On Saturday we played Scunthorpe in our last home game before Xmas and what a great game of Rugby it turned out to be. Conditions on the day were good, considering the amount of rain we had received in the days leading up to the game but it was not until the 19th minute that we scored our first try with a well taken score for no 8 Mark Goodman, after a powerful drive from captain Bob Birtwell, converted by Oli Glasse. This was followed six minutes later with a beautiful try for Oli himself after a wonderful run from full back Leon Simpson and support work from centre Rob Holloway. Scunthorpe hit back with an excellent try of their own from their left […]
