Chairman's Monthly Report - April
As we moved into the final month of our rugby season, only a few fixtures were played throughout the club.
Mark Blyghton’s 1st XV finished off their league campaign with good wins against Chiswick and Grasshoppers, with slight disappointment of loosing to London Nigerians at their ground on an awful wet and windy day. The team finished fourth overall in the London North West Two League, which was a good performance by the team after so many changes in the squad from last season.More
HFRFC VETS – RUNNERS UP IN DEAL VETS TOURNAMENT
Saturday saw 21 HFRFC Vets, take an early coach down to Deal and Betteshanger RFC, to play in the Man of Kent Veterans Tournament at the former Royal Marine Barracks. Tony Richards had stayed the night before, on the pretext of a romantic weekend and ensured that the Dutch had a very enjoyable, but drunken evening.
The Vets played 5 matches against RC Eemland (Holland) (45-15), Sheppy RFC (25-0), Canterbury RFC (15-0) , Rye RFC (45-0) and finally lost in a hard fought final against Thanet Wanders RFC, by two tries.More
Chairman's Monthly Report - March
The weather was once again been awful this month and it has caused many fixtures to be cancelled, but luckily we were still able to get some games played.
The 1st XV continued there winning ways in the league by defeating competitive opponents in Harpenden and HAC, with strong defence being the key to winning these games for the Hammers. The HAC game was played mid week under floodlights at the Allianz Park Stadium in Hendon, the new home of Saracens RFC on their new 4G pitch. The watching crowd looked a bit lost amongst 10,000 empty seats, but the match kept everybody warm on a very cold night. It now needs for Hemel Hempstead to slip up in their last few remaining games for any change of Mark Blyghton’s side reaching the second place in the league and going to the play-offs.More
