This is a reverse fixture from last season’s pre-season when we played at Lockleaze. Then the seconds took on Old Hales 2s and were comfortable winners but a weak firsts side lost 15-0.
Old Halesonians play in Midlands 1 West, an equivalent level to Thornbury.
Old Hales play at Hagley, between Halesowen and Stourbridge. With road works on the M5 the best route is to come off the motorway at junction 4 and take the A491 towards Stourbridge. The postcode is DY9 9JP. It takes about 90 minutes to get there.
