Ventnor 1st XV play US Portsmouth at Watcombe tomorrow Saturday 18th December 2021
Ventnor 1st XV play US Portsmouth RFC at Watcombe tomorrow Saturday 18th December, in the Hampshire Division One clash. Kick off is at 2pm. The bar will be open from 1pm. This match marks the start of the second half of the season. When we went to theirs in September (US Portsmouth RFC 1XV 27-13 Ventnor RFC 1XV 25 September 2021), we suffered a loss despite a huge advantage in our set play. Let’s hope that we can make it count this time round and that we can maintain Watcombe as a fortress.
Ventnor RFC 1XV currently lie 7th in the Hampshire One league table, with 25 points, fourteen points from the top (as at 12/12/2021).
Whilst United Services Portsmouth RFC are on 36 points, in 2nd.
Unfortunately Alton RFC 2nds cried off yesterday (despite the mighty Ventnor Lions travelling to theirs earlier in the season) so there is no 2nd XV game – highly frustrating since Deano is putting together a more than useful squad and there is a very evident team spirit. However, no doubt they will find some compensation in supporting the 1st XV and enhancing the bar profits!
And don’t forget, there is a Christmas party after the match. Nancy is very generously providing buffet food. Christmas jumpers mandatory!
Ventnor RFC would like to thank the sponsors for the 1st XV match, namely: Besty and Spinky’s, CP Bathrooms, Groundsell Contracting Ltd, LJ Plumbing, Rog Evans, Steve Champion, The Mill Bay and Ventnor Haven Fishery.
We would also like to thank James Blake who has recently taken over as Grounds Manager for the club and has transformed the surrounding banks that make up the bowl at Watcombe. You won’t recognise the place!
Looking forward to seeing you all.
