A sad start to todays fixture a minutes silence for Mr Rob Knapp an RFU official who had been to Belgrave RFU several times over the last few years and given the game good service he passed away last week.The club sends its sympathy to Robs family.
On a brighter note the surgery on The Kyle brothers went well,Jack came out of hospital yesterday,brother Rob remains there for things to settle down ,we all send our good wishes.
Today a home fixture against Sutton Coalfield the home of that well known television transmitter.Just think no Crossroads without it and no Benny who went out for a screwdriver in December and never got back till March because he was in pantomime in Birmingham.But that s another story.
The match official for the day Mr Paul Tilley I thought I would mention him as he did admire my hat,a snap brimmed fedora by the way.Thank you Paul.
The game was played at a fast and furious pace at half time Belgrave led by 33 points to 19 scores from T a 60 yard run,Niall O'Connor under the posts,Kevin Curtis another catch of an airborne catch and a pushover from Dave Towl it is rumoured the creaking of his knees could be heard above the crowd down the City.But it is only a rumour.
