Dear SRFC VP,
Just the one senior fixture last weekend with Sherborne, as Dorset & Wilts cup holders, travelling to Berkshire to play Windsor in the Southern Counties cup semi-final. Sherborne had not played a fixture against Windsor since the heady days of South West 1 and South West 2 East two decades ago and the trip will have evoked a few memories for some of the travelling support. Windsor have been in good form in the league in recent weeks and, despite sitting third in the league, would have been buoyed by a good win over second placed Buckingham the previous weekend.
Sherborne couldn't quite come away with a win on the day but the 12-3 defeat will be a boost to confidence after the recent wobble in the league. Sherborne's spirits will also be boosted by the fact that they find themselves back on top of Southern Counties South, Marlborough picked up a points penalty having fielded an unregistered player in a recent match.
This weekend all three senior sides are in action at home. The 1st XV host Blandford in a league match and will be respectful of the visitors who have won two out of the last three including a win over North Dorset on their most recent outing. The 2nd XV host Bournemouth 4th XV, The visitors were unable to field a side last time out and Sherborne will be hoping that they do get a game this weekend.
Both matches kick off at 14:30 and your support will be most welcome.
On Sunday the Colts host North Dorset in a friendly and will be looking to maintain the momentum they have built in the second phase of this season's Merit table matches. With a big game to come at Trowbridge in early March this opportunity for a game is very welcome.This one kicks off at 14:00 and again your suport will be very welcome.
