In the final game of 2021, Belgrave welcome league leaders Bedford Athletic to the Pastures. Belgrave have had this game earmarked from the final whistle of the return fixture in early September when Bedford were comprehensive winners 59-22.
This will be an excellent yard stick of how much the team has grown and developed in the last 3 months and anticipation is high. The Belgrave side as ever will be cheered on by a partisan crown including 120 + who will be sitting down for Christmas lunch and the usual festivities.
Belgrave have won the last 3 home games on the spin and come into the fixture with a sense of optimism. Training has been excellent this week and the squad is further buoyed by an outstanding performance last time out against Peterborough Lions.
The front row is made up of Josh Jarvis, Sam Garner and Paddy Thomson. Tom Knifton partners Mark Deaville in the Second Row. The back row is slightly reshuffled with captain Elliott Walker at 8, Jayden Darvill at 6 and Nathan Wells at 7.
The Kyle brothers are at half back, Luke Gutteridge teams up with Joe Pollard in the midfield. The back 3 is made up of the electric and free scoring Tatenda Chirata, Kevin Curtis and Roddy Campbell Jonas.
The bench is comprised of returning veteran Tom Ball, Lewis Moult and Connor Jackson.
As ever your support is much appreciated and the players look forward to thanking you for all your support with a snowball up in the club house after the game.
The Players and Coaching staff would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers, committee members, bar/ kitchen staff and facilities staff who have kept the club running so successfully throughout 2021.
Finally, from all at BRFC we wish you and your families a very happy and healthy Christmas.
