Twentieth match of the season played at Swindon on a well grassed pitch and a thunderous gale, under floodlights

This match should have been a  home fixture for Minety but was repeatedly postponed due to poor playing conditions.  Eventually it had to be played on a Wednesday evening and that meant finioshing it under floodlight conditions.  Consequently, it was moved from Minety to Swindon.  Please note that comments from the crowd are not in any way associated with Minety RFC.  Also, whilst we apologise for any foul or abusive language, the viewer should understand that this is the film of a live sporting event and that some profanity, whilst not condoned, is to be expected.

Yes, after several weeks without either camera, we are back in action covering last Saturday’s encounter between Melksham and Minety at Melksham’s marvellous new facility on the edge of the town.  The match was filmed from high up on the main stand, which has both advantages and disadvantages.  The advantages are that lines of play can be picked out easily; the disadvantage was that it was very blustery and although I have tried to keep wind noise down to a minimum, it still intrudes.

 

The failure of both cameras meant that no film was shot of the recent match against Devizes (18th February) but in its stead is “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” feature from the Chippenham match.  These are available on the DVD’s of each game but, for copyright reasons relating to the accompanying music, are not available on line.  For the Chippenham match I have substituted the orginal music for some copyright free music. Under 4 minutes in length, it shows some of the best bits of the match from a Minety perspective, some in slow motion.

With last week’s match against Frome cancelled due to frost in the Frome pitch, we’re delighted to bring you the match between Devizes and Minety from January 2016.  For those that played it will be remembered as “Claxton’s finest”, the match where the “magical” Claxton pass opened up the home defence late on in the game as Minety ran in their highest score of the 2015/6 campaign.
