Thornbury 15 Clevedon 9

17th September 2016

Team: H.Butland, T.Thie, A.Rice, D.Ashfield, M.Taylor, K.Hill, M.Lowis, B.Largenton, J.Ford, B.Bosley, W.Trollope, L.Appleby, H.Foley, H.Russell, O.Biggin(c). Replacements: T.Statton, J.Lugtig, R.Biggins. Coach: N.Hill. Flag: N.Tucker. Physio: G.Davis. Referee: Craig Pocock (Bristol Society)

Kev Weaver: The bonus point penalty...Two 9-15 scorelines in three weeks have netted Clevedon two losing bonus points, which in seasons gone by would've been.

Both these games have a lot in common besides the scoreline. They were both away and tryless with Clevedon dominating large periods of each game. They came up against resolute and robust defences. Finished both games strongly, each time going for the winning try and within the five metre zone when the whistle blew. Oh!... and Tucks was on the flag!

The home game last week against Teignmouth showed how clinical Clevedon can be and this is something that coach Hill will be looking at during training this week to ensure a home victory against Bideford.

Sixty years at The Vale

24th September 2016

1st XV 1956 - 1957This week is the 60th anniversary of the very first match played at Coleridge Vale Playing Fields.

To help celebrate, The Club would like to invite all sponsors, life members and Vice Presidents to join them in a pre-match buffet at 13:00 and then to watch the first team play Bideford at 15:00.

The seconds are away to Wellington for a 15:00 kick off.

No Neck Groupies

Alan Crane: The excitement is too much for these No Necks...The group of old men calling themselves The No Necks (a term first coined by coach Nick Hill) follow the first team avidly.

They're that keen that they hang around outside changing rooms hoping for a glimspe of their team as they come off the pitch all smelly and sweaty.

This is not unlike their normal daily existence where they're the ones who smell faintly of digestives (another Hillism) and have incontinence problems. The photo is proof, if proof were needed, of their normal daily lives. Meet these illustrious chaps next week at the club and judge for yourself.

More cider anyone?
