Ventnor RFC Rugby at Watcombe on Saturday 30 October 2021
This Saturday,30th October 2021, Ventnor 1sts play Overton RFC at Watcombe Bottom in a crucial Hampshire League Division One match. Kick off is at 3pm.
As you may have heard, the 1sts lost last weekend away at Fareham Heathens and also due in some part to a number of injuries (Luke Butler, George Finan and Lewy Morton).
Add those names to a list that includes Harry Colson, Dan Bell, Guy Entwistle and Harrison Marsh and you can see that we are reaching deep into our squad for Saturday.
Luckily this is not the massive disadvantage it would have been a few years ago, witness the great win by the 2nds last Saturday against a strong Kingsclere team (Ventnor RFC 2XV 38-25 Kingsclere RFC Saturday 23 October 2021). We had more than twenty players turn out for that game – with more on the sideline – and the performances throughout were of high quality with excellent debuts from Tom Davies and Conor & Will Harrison.
The 2nd XV have no game this weekend since Petersfield RFC 3rds cannot raise a team so we will get the points for an Away-Walk-Over win.
The bar will be open from 2pm so please come along. There will be some welcome old faces turning up as well so there’ll be much reminiscing in THAT corner of the bar, no doubt. The guys need your support in what will be a tricky game against traditionally ‘hostile’ opposition.
Ventnor RFC would like to thank our match sponsors for the weekend, namely:
Flowers for You, Le Tour du Monde, No 24, The Bistro, The Crab and Lobster, Ventnor, The Crab Shed, The Spyglass and Unique Aerospace
Hon Secretary, Ventnor RFC
