After a year’s break, the club took part in the National Club Championship again this year. Sadly, the crack squad of Charles Compton, Ben Hale, Tom Webster and Richard Dyke (left) couldn’t have had a tougher draw: facing eventual winners the Old Paulines in the first round. They were further handicapped by injury – Charles, in true club fashion, tweaked his back that morning at home by ‘standing up'(!) – but all four put in a sterling performance that doubtless entertained the crowd. Better still, Ben and Richard went on to play in a hastily arranged RFA team that won the Plate.
Plucky performance in National Club Championship
