Sunday 29 April. HARBURY 39 PLYMSTOCK ALBION 39
Plymstock rounded off their summer tour with a match against Harbury before returning home to Plymouth. So successful was their tour last year, albeit with only 12 players, this year they arrived with a coach load! On a pleasant sunny afternoon, the match was sympathetically but fairly refereed by a Society official which made for a game being played in the spirit appreciated by everyone in a touring match. The match was declared an honourable draw.
Players from the U16s and parents met in the Clubhouse to give special thanks and make a presentation to Simon White for his commitment to the team as well as his commitment to coaching over the last 10 years.
