The future's bright - the future's Blood and Sand
As we edge nearer to the end of the season our thoughts turn to preparation for the coming season and in particular the clubhouse and grounds. We are very fortunate to have some fantastic facilities here at CRUFC but unless they are maintained they won’t last long without costing the club a substantial amount of money. Money we can ill afford.
The off-season gives us an opportunity to carry out much needed repairs and enhancements and the saying “many hands make light work” stands true – but these many hands need to come from within which is why we are seeking VOLUNTEERS.
Gordon Newbound and his team of helpers have done a fantastic job this season of keeping the club running but maintenance is an ongoing task. The more volunteers we have the easier the task becomes so, if you have a particular skill or are happy to help where you can Gordon would like to hear from you. If you can spare 1-2 hrs a week, month or year then again Gordon would like to hear from you.
Interested? Then please contact Gordon.
Remember this is YOUR Club and Together We Are Blood And Sand.
For the second week in a row Cambridge travelled away and inflcted the home side's largest defeat of their season as they beat 5th placed Worthing 19-43.
Cambridge are used to starting fast this season but this time it was Worthing quickest out of the blocks taking an early 14-0 lead. The Cambridge side at the start of this season might have paniced but this side stuck to its game plan and it was Worthing who lost their structure as Cambridge fought back to 14-10 at half time with a try from Steve Hipwell and a penalty by Ben Penfold.
Worthing scored first in the second half taking the score to 19-10, but that would prove to be their last of the match. Tries followed from Mike Gillick, James Stokes, Jim Wigglesworth, Hipwell's second, and then Wigglesworth again before the final whistle was blown.
With Chinnor losing we move up to 6th place, just two points behind Worthing. A top five finish this season is now a real possibility.
