Three interesting warm-up games have been arranged before the league season starts on Saturday 7th September.

On Saturday 17th August the squad travels to Holt RFC in North Norfolk, a regular opposition for our Mini/Juniors while on their Easter Tours but certainly new opposition for our Senior sides. Holt RFC play at Level 6 (same as ourselves) and are in Regional 2 Anglia alongside some familiar names such as Westcliffe, Rochford Hundred, and Eton Manor who were all recently playing at a higher league level.

Then on Saturday 24th, we play host to Norwich RFC who we played at their place in a warm-up game last season. Norwich will be playing in Counties 1 Eastern Counties (Level 7) next season where they will have some formidable opposition in Bury St Edmunds II, North Walsham II, and Colchester II all clubs that have recently been in or are in the National Leagues.

Our final warm-up game sees us play old rivals S & L RFC, who were promoted last season after winning all their league games and will now be playing at Level 7. Not sure of the venue for this game yet as there are a few logistical things to be sorted, so watch this space for further details and also for kick-off times for the three games.

Then the following weekend we travel up the A6 to Oadby Wyggestonian for our first league of what promises to be another exciting season as we look to make progress after our 5th position finish in 2023 - 24.
