This Saturday, Marlborough is on the verge of creating history with both teams. The seconds are playing their final game of the season against Melksham and if they are to get promotion, this is a must win game, anything less just won’t do. The boys have worked hard all season, 17 league wins, 3 losses and 1 draw. They can almost taste success except for one thing, they have to win this final match to remain in second place and get automatic promotion to D & W North 1. Never in Marlborough’s history has a second team been in this position and one which the Club is buzzing with the possibility.
Not to be left in the shadows, the first team also have their own quest, if they want to reach the play-offs, then they must win this game against Swindon. Even contemplating at the beginning of the season that the firsts, who have experienced their first season in South West 1 East, even being in the running for this possibility seemed madness, we would have more than accepted a mid-table position, but with the start to the season the boys had, anything seemed possible.
So, grab the family, grab the dog and make your way up to the Common and be part of MRFC history. Come and support the boys, make some noise and enjoy being part of a Club that not only cherishes success on the pitch, but seeing youngsters wearing their MRFC shirts, enjoying their rugby and being part of a community. So set your alarms and don't be late!
