Not quite the start we’d hoped for…

Saturday 8 January 2011: both Minety’s senior sides begin the new year by losing at home.

On a cold, bright winter’s afternoon, the 1st XV narrowly lost 24-29 to Pewsey Vale, while the Dream Team’s dreams of an unbeaten league season were rudely shattered by a bruising encounter with Swindon thirds.

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

Professional photographer Terry Parker was at Minety for the Pewsey Vale game, so look out for his pictures in the sports section of this week’s issue of The Wilts & Gloucestershire Standard.

(The magnificent pin-sharp action photo of Tom Fitzcharles on the right is one of Terry’s. The murky and blurry picture of the Swindon thirds game above is one of Nigel’s. Just in case anyone was in any doubt…)

Next Saturday, 15 January 2011, Minety firsts play away against Fairford while the seconds travel to play the Calne 2nd XV.

Date ahead: the next Friends of Minety RFC lunch is on Saturday 29 January 2011, before the double-header first and second team home games against Sutton Benger and Warminster seconds respectively. Contact Ken Judd for further details.
