After the weather froze our game away at the start of February, Hampshire RFU have issued a mandate that all 1/4 finals matches are to be completed by 18th March at the latest. We have agreed to hold the match on 11th March at Gosport Park. The original B team fixture planned for that date at home will now be moved back 1 week & will now be an away fixture with Salisbury B + Fordingbridge as a triangular fixture played at Salisbury. All match details have been added to Pitchero.
The cup competition has also been rearranged so that teams falling at the 1/4 final stage (hopefully not relevant to us anyway!) drop down from cup to bowl, from plate to vase etc. Therefore, the dates fixed in the diary for cup matches WILL involve cup fixtures of some description guaranteed.
Those dates are:
11th March - 1/4 finals.
1st April - semi finals. *** This is during the Easter holiday so let me know ASAP if you are not going to be available.
29th April - finals day.
Only 1 quarter final was able to be played on 5th Feb. New Milton overcame U.S. Portsmouth by 44 - 5.
