Rock-bottom Bognor in search of a victory

BOGNOR will want to escape from the basement of London 3 South West where they are firmly rooted following a 30-15 home defeat to UN Potrsmouth.

 

The Hamphsire Avenue outfit endured their second defeat of the campaign and now bid to notch a victory at Farham, who sit in third position in the table despite playing one game fewer than the top two of Teddington and leaders Eastleigh.

 

They travel to Surrey tomorrow (Saturday) following the reverse to Portsmouth and with a 52-0 walloping by Eastleigh at home the week before. Meanwhile, Bognor 3rd XV took a bit of a hammering when they lost 43-7 at Holbrook in Sussex Division 4 West.

 

But Bognor starlets are in with a chance of winning £1,000 thanks to the picture featured right.

 

The club’s Doug Millen explained: “As the U13s we visited the Stoop at the end of last season to watch Quins play Exeter in the last home game of the season, 30 kids and 23 adults all from that age group from Bognor RFC.

 

“We went on to do our annual awards ceremony on the pitch after the match and met some players from both sides.

 

“Richard Lindsey, one of our coaches, took the chance to grab a selfie with all the lads in shot. It’s a great photo capturing the sentiment of the day, rugby and of the club. So we entered into a team photo competition hoping to win the prize money to support the team through the season in addition to the support we’ve generously received from Saxton Blades of Bognor and Lions Club Bognor Regis.”

New year eight and year nine, U13-U14 players are always welcome at Bognor RFC, Tuesday 6pm and Sunday 10am.
