Saturday 5 October 2013

Minety’s rugby was overshadowed this weekend by a serious neck injury to the club secretary and second team flyhalf Andy Edwards.

Andy was injured in the game against Combe Down seconds and rushed to hospital in Bath. He was due to undergo surgery at Frenchay Hospital today, Monday 7 October. His son Max and various club members have been posting updates on his progress on the club’s Facebook page, and that’s probably the best place to go for the latest news.

All of us here at Minety RFC join in wishing Andy a full and speedy recovery from his injuries.

While the Dreamers eventually went down 17-7 to their counterparts at Combe Down, the firsts were finishing off a thoroughly businesslike 5-38 demolition of their old rivals Supermarine. Reports on both games are now in the Match Reports section.

The unbeaten (after one game!) Minety RFC skittles team is in “action” at the Clubhouse again this Friday, 11 October, playing against The Rugby Ladies. If you would like to play, support the team or just drink some beer this Friday, then please let Tim Vaughan (, 07771-747068) know.

This Saturday, 12 October 2013, Minety’s two senior sides will be playing at home. The firsts host Swindon seconds, while the Dreamers welcome Devizes thirds. Kick offs: 3 pm.
