Olds & Bold 2018 - Awards

7 months ago By Richard Bunton

A great day

Despite having to move the Olds and Bolds from the usual last Saturday in April weekend a fantastic Olds and Bolds was had by all on 21st April. The 1s had a run out against a Southwark Lancers club side who unfortunately lost most of their 1st XV players to a re-arranged league fixture. It was a fairly one-sided affair as the Footscray team clearly hadnt drunk enough beer to even up the sides up and ran out winners. A massive thanks to Southwark for fulfilling the fixture as many teams would have simply pulled out and we look forward to seeing them at full strength next season.
The Olds and Bolds was a great game with Gravesend Moles sending two teams to play one fixture and using their massive subs bench to good effect. The Olds made up of 2s/Vets and Olds players put up a great show and managed to win 28-21 but it could have gone either way. It was a fantastic day great to see old faces and a few new ones. We really want to push forwards next season so get involved
