Alresford RFC News – July


Alresford Rugby Club brought our season to a close with a fabulous awards dinner at The Arlebury. There are so many individuals and sponsors to thank it would take up another edition to name you all! Needless to say, a heartfelt thank you to you all.

For this edition we wanted to focus on the playing side of our club.

The 1ST XV finished 7th from 12 in The Hampshire Premiership, having played 22 very competative matches, winning 9,losing 13 and finishing with 50 points. Despite losing so many key players to serious injuries, we finished comfortably above the clubs below us and not that far off a couple of clubs above us.

The 2ND XV have been outstanding in Hampshire 3 league. Despite each week being robbed of players we finished 4th out of 10 sides, winning 11 and losing 7, culminating with 63 points. Outstanding.

Although the season has officially ended, you can still watch, or join in, a bit of very friendly touch rugby on our pitches for the next 5 weeks, every Thursday from 6.30pm till 8.00pm, followed by a free bbq for all participants at The Arlebury.
All ages very welcome.

From ARFC, thank you for your continued support. Without you all, none of the above happens.

We are hoping to hold a car boot sale in the near future at The Arlebury to raise monies for the club. Keep a look out for further details.

We look forward to going again and seeing you all soon.
