Good Day to you Ye Mighty Dons!
Well its a bonza of a Wednesday and one we can all raise a glass to as it is Bully's Birthday.
Bully has been a stalwart of the men's side of the club for more years than I care to count now. His current role is that of Senior Coach and Manager - but he has been an ever-present fixture for the chaps - a rock of consistency in an ever changing game - outlasting players and coaches and committees. Have a great day Bully - we thank you for all your hard work every week - and hopefully one or two might buy you a jar on Saturday!
Now onto last week's fixture. As you know we only had the one game last weekend which was the Friday Night Lights fixture for the 2nd XV vs Barnes. A well stocked bar and touchline provided a rowdy evening as the chaps in claret and blue ran riot with a fabulous 45-0 victory in a cracking double header. This sees the 2nd XV march up to 4th place in the table and amply positioned to push on for some silverware come the end of the season.
As usual this weekend's fixtures we will go through in detail on Friday - but for those looking to travel the 1st XV men's fixture is away to Guildford with a 2.30pm kick off. There is no Sunday women's fixture to the best of my knowledge......
Now - in light of the lightness of this litany - lets run a luscious look through the lavish events we have upcoming at your club:
28th February - Wooden Spoon Charity Dinner
4th April - end of season Presidents Lunch
2nd May - Wimbledon Womens' 30th anniversary game and celebrations
15th May - the club end of season dinner
20th June - Charity Touch Rugby Tournament
1st August - Jack Fishwick Sevens Tournament
Right - get those bad boys in your little black books and for all the fixtures etc just take a look at the club web page calendar section and get yourself booked in for some club lunches on 1st XV home games.
That's enough from me for now.
Have a great week and train hard Dons!
