Saturday 12 April 2014

Minety firsts finished the season with an outstanding 5-32 win away against Melksham.

This leaves us second in Dorset & Wilts Division 1 North, on equal points with Bradford-on-Avon but with a poorer For:Against ratio. Minety should still be promoted as runners-up, though, and face the exciting prospect of playing again in Southern Counties next season.

The Dreamers, meanwhile, found themselves severely outnumbered away against their couterparts at Bradford-on-Avon and went down 25-5.

Reports on both games are now in the Match Reports section.
