KENILWORTH RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
Last Sunday our Men truly delivered with a superb 25-19 win over Broadstreet in a ‘friendly’ that replaced the scheduled Warwickshire Cup game. All is explained in the brief match report that can be viewed HERE. On the same day our Women had a superb 56-5 win over Buckingham Swans who finished 2nd in the league last season. A report on this game is also on the web site and can be viewed HERE.
This weekend sees the start of the league for both the Men and Women, both at home.
On Saturday 7th the Men take on Stourbridge Lions in Mids 1 west, their first ever visit to Glasshouse Lane. Last season Lions finished 11th of the 14 teams in the league and this season they are being coached by our ex player Francis Nock. The programme for the game will be posted on the web site on Friday evening. Entry to the game will be £4.
On Sunday the Women take on West Bridgford who finished 3rd in the league last season. This game kicks off at 2.30pm.
It is hoped that our newly designed strip will be on display in both games.
On Friday night (6th) the club will be showing England’s final World Cup warm up fixture when they take on Italy at St James Park Newcastle.
The club will also be open for the World Cup games with Tonga (22nd Sept @ 11.15am), Argentina (5th Oct @ 9am) and France (12th Oct @ 9.15am). Breakfast will be available on these days, as well as our full bar.
Next week our Men are away at Sutton Coldfield and the Women are away at Bletchley on the Sunday.
