Welcome to Eton Manor today. The club was founded in 1928 and over the years they have maintained a strong playing base in North London.
Last season Chiltern won a close home match before playing away in some of the worst and wettest weather seen for many, many years. It was a pity as both sides wanted to play some open rugby, instead it was a squelch from one scrum to the next as neither side could hold onto the ball in any sort of contact!! Eton Manor were worthy winners on the day so Chiltern will need to up their game after their performance against Luton if they are to record another victory.
That said our visitors have been the recipient, at home, of one of the RFU’s 3G pitches which we understand has been very well received and which we look forward to playing on next year.
Next week the side play the last league game of the year at Old Haberdashers just outside Watford but will be playing the rearranged Bucks Cup semi final away against Beaconsfield on 22/12, kick off 2.00pm. Many people will remember what an excellent day was had by all in an absorbing tie last year and hopefully the same will be true this year as well.
