A beautiful Autumn afternoon saw Beaconsfield put out 3 teams on Saturday afternoon, no small achievement these days so huge congratulations to everyone involved.
The first team were playing Marlborough RFC and it was clear from the warm up that they are excellent rugby players, but that did not deter Beaconsfield from really taking the battle to them and indeed leading the game at halftime. I think that, realistically, we all knew that the last 20 minutes was going to be extremely tough and so it proved to be but the final score being 17-40 in favour of the visitors, did not do justice to the supreme effort of all the Beaconsfield players who should feel very proud of their efforts.
In the other matches, the seconds travelled to Marlow and had a magnificent victory, 32-19, not a great day for Marlow as their 1st XV lost to Slough!.
Our 3rds were at home to Mill Hill and had a very strong squad, with older and new players mixing up in classic Bandit style. They also had a terrific win, 62-15.
Next week, we also have 3 games, all of which are away. The 1's travel to Newbury for another very tough match and your support is very welcome so please do go over if you can to lend you voice from the side line.
The 2nds are away at Oxford Harlequins and the 3rds are away at Fullarians, so plenty of rugby to watch.
Yesterday we had the Mini's tournament at the club and what a day it was. Fantastic weather, nearly 1000 players and a superb atmosphere.
Russ Whitlock and all his volunteers should be immensely proud of this tournament, it is always brilliantly run and every club that attends tells us it is the best one all year. The level of volunteering is amazing and really goes to demonstrate what a brilliant club we have.
Hope you all have a great week and see you soon.
