The first was held at Minety on Tuesday evening with Cricklade as the opponents. Played with rolling substitutions over three 20 minute periods, everyone got a run out and Minety won 31-7.
The second was played on Saturday away against Tadley seconds. A combined Minety first-and-second team (the 1.5 XV!) took a while to get going but eventually won 15-43.

Next Saturday, 11 September, the season proper begins. Both teams play at home in their respective leagues, the firsts against Wootton Bassett seconds and the seconds against Devizes thirds. Kick-offs: 3.00 pm.
