Wimborne 10 Letchworth GC 0

It was indeed a very early start - and a long journey - to Wimborne but it was a journey well worth making for the warm welcome and the excellent game of rugby. Letchworth were a little short staffed for this match due to a few previous engagements and Megan's wrist having not yet fully recovered so we were a travelling party of 11 players. However, Wimborne kindly furnished us with 4 players so we were able to play a very competitive - and close fought - 15-a-side match.

The match was played in an excellent spirit and was a very well-balanced affair with the defences of both teams being equal to the challenge in the first half. Indeed is was not until the last quarter of the match that Wimborne scored their 2 tries and, even then, Letchworth continued to attack the Wimborne line right to the final whistle - getting within inches of scoring on more than one occasion but ultimately being denied by a very determined Wimborne defence.

The match was a credit to all players on both sides but a special word of thanks should be said to those Wimborne players who gave their all playing for Letchworth.
