Well howdy YE MIGHTY DONS!!!
Mightier and mightier - what a season! WHAT A SEASON!
It's official Wimbledon RFC will be playing in National 2 next season after the 55-5 win over Ding Crusaders last Saturday. Thank you to everyone who turned up - the atmosphere was electric. Hats off to Ding's supporters and players who took their defeat in good grace and we look forward to hopefully meeting them again in Nat 2 in the coming seasons. You can read the match report from the game here.
The season, however, was not just about the 1st XV. The 2nd XV finished with their highest ever league position, and both the 3rd XV and the Strollers finished just 2nd in their leagues. The Ladies team had an admirable mid table finish in a very tough league and the future looks bright with the U13s finishing unbeaten for the whole season! Astonishing.
So - next weekend we have the end of season players' dinner. Wags and other halves are invited and we need numbers in AND PAID FOR - by next Tuesday. This is urgent. Please get this done pronto.Tickets are 30 quid each and payment needs to go to:
30 99 66
Please also let Anna know if you are coming and how many are going. DO THIS NOW PLEASE!
As well as this we have a French touring team coming to play on May 20th against the Strollers with a certain Mark Percival pulling on his boots for a 12.30 pm kick off. The match against Cenac Old Blacks will be followed by a lunch where we can show off the best of our Wimbledon hospitality. It would be great to see a few of you down there to welcome our guests and we look forward to some sunshine fun.
Finally on June 3rd we have the Bondy Memorial Cricket Match. If you would like to play please do ket me know before then.
Other than that, that is pretty much it from me for the season. It has been a pleasure to have been your scribe for the season and I hope we can carry on next season from where we left off. If you have any other messages you want going out in the meantime do let me know. I hope everyone enjoys their respective tours and try not to get into too much trouble whilst away. Thank you for your kind messages throughout the year and I wish you all a peaceful and pleasant summer break.
Now time for me to hibernate. See you next year
