Spring Tournament Great Success
The annual spring festival was a roaring success on March 3rd . Visiting clubs benefited from dry weather all day to a welcome return to Spring Rugby
Clubs from Windsor , Amersham , Chess V, Chinnor ,Tring, Maindenhead, Fullers,Ealing ,Marlow and Richmond, turned up on the cold March morning to run off the frost and blow out those winter cobwebs .
Feed back from everyone has been very positive and the club cannot thank enough the hard work and dedication from every one who had a hand in making the sporting occasion the success it was.
From BBQ to Bivouac , Catering to carparking , Raffle to Rugby everything was run as smooth as clockwork .
