On a day when the 1st XV faced league unbeaten champions United Services and the 2nd XV played their last game in Dorset & Wilts, I was privileged enough to witness brilliant performances from both teams.
Congratulations to Harry for leading a determined and talented 1st team beating United Services 22-5 in their only defeat of the season.
A perfect end to a solid season and a respectable entry into the newly formed Hampshire Premiership next season. Well done to all the players and a big thank you to David Gogin and Edd Douglas for their coaching and support.
I know that Ian Brown is extremely proud of a quality team that can compete at the top end of the Hampshire leagues.
Congratulations also to Jake Kostelyk for leading a second team to a 89-0 victory over Swanage & Wareham and for finishing a respectable third in the table before moving to Hampshire division 4 next year.
It was great to see so many younger players involved and it promises great things for both teams in their new leagues next season.
We are unique club punching well above our weight and upholding all the values associated with The Wonderful Game of rugby
I am very proud and honoured to be part of such a great club.
