Green Machine v Oadby
Deepings RUFC - Oadby Wyggestonian
19th February 2011
Deepings – 00
Oadby - 25
As is so often the case the score did not reflect the rugby played by the home side but Oadby are a well drilled unit and that only comes from players turning up in the week and doing that little extra bit for themselves and the team.
Unfortunately despite losing games like this this season, the training fields at DRUFC remain quiet. However the results further down the league went in the Green Machines favour and they retain forth in the league on points difference.
There was though massive success off the pitch on Saturday though, the club hosted forty-two Vice Presidents, sponsors and their guest for a superb four course lunch, praise was reaped on the chefs, Gemma Wilson and Neil 'Beefy' Webb and Sam Wilson, along with maître d’Nigel Thornton and his his waitresses Madeline & Amy.
We would like to thank Kevin Tate of BIG On Style ( www.bigonstyle.com ) in Mancetter Square, Werrington, our Match Day Partner for sponsoring the match, they selected Levan Stapleton (photo) as the IXV Man of the Match and presented him with a trophy at the post match reception.
We hope to see all the guests and new friends of the club again soon.
The IXV are at Linchfield Road again this Saturday, 26th Feb, hosting a rearranged fixture from before Christmas against Northampton Casuals.
