The best way to keep up to date with Old Brodleians RUFC


1st XV v Bridlington and 2nd XV in the Play-off Final

1 year ago By James Ogden

Last weekend of the season

There’s a busy day ahead on Saturday with the 1st XV welcoming Bridlington to Woodhead Park (3pm kick off). The season started with a tough trip to the coast on the opening game when the Brods went down with a 24 -11 loss. Bridlington continued their great start are now uncatchable at the top of Yorkshire One.

Brods can only finish 6th in the league regardless of the result but would love to close the season on a high by beating the league champions.

A sell-out pre-match luncheon and the fact that it’s the last game assures a great crowd and atmosphere. The club will also be marking the sad passing of a true club stalwart Derek Hamer with a minute’s silence ahead of kick off. The club flag will also fly at half-mast.

Following the match there will be the latest 300 Club Draw.

Promotion Final
The 2nd XV are looking to close their season by winning promotion to the Premiership Merit League. To do that they’ll need to beat Scunthorpe 2nds in the Play-off Final over at Pontefract (3.30pm kick-off).

Brods has only lost once this year in all league fixtures and finished 2nd in the Northern Merit League. On the way to the final they beat Dinnington and Selby (both away) and carry high hopes and plenty of confidence into Saturday. Scunthorpe however offer the sternest of tests, being undefeated all year and winning their Southern Merit League.

Brods Vision: Your thoughts, your feedback
Also this weekend in the clubhouse, don’t forget that there’s an exhibition on both the Saturday and Sunday set up to discuss the changes in the Club’s constitution and the ways in which our facilities could be improved along with our links in the community.
