Half-ton hoodoo hits battling Bognor again

BATTLING Bognor suffered yet another heavy defeat and for the third time lost to opposition in who chalked up more than 50 points.


This time it was a 54-10 reverse at Old Cranleighans in this London 3 South West division encounter.


The Hampshire Avenue outfit have a weekend off with no game tomorrow in the league but are back in action once more next Saturday when they host Battersea Ironsides.


After five games, Bognor sit bottom of the table of 12 with just one point while their next opponents are placed ninth, having won two matches and suffered defeats in the other two.


Bognor have a relatively young side and have found it a challenge to cope with the level of rugby since they were promoted last season. But as you would expect the spirit is good and hope remains that the outfit can turn things around.


Undefeated Farnham, who walloped Bognor 53-0 towards the end of last month, sit at the top of the pile with a maximum 25 points. And they have amassed 254 points already this campaign.


Meanwhile, Bognor 2nd XV lost to their Horsham counterparts in a 24-41 reverse, while the 3rd XV enjoyed a comfortable win over Pulborugh with a 37-7 scofreline. Elsewhere, Bognor look to the future when they welcome Harlequins to Hampshire Avenue to stage a coaching camp for youngsters at the end of the month during half-term.


The sessions are open to boys and girls aged between six and 14 on October 27 and 28 and is priced at £85.
