Woodbridge U21 v Southwold U21s

Much confusion about the score. Southwold won but was it 10-29 or 15-32? The U21s gave a hot performance in the misty, chilly night as Southwold turned up mob-handed to support their youngsters. Playing in borrowed kit in the first half the visitors sparked from the start forcing some brave defence from the Warriors. Eventually Woodbridge got on the score sheet and at half time it looked a closer contest. However with their familiar gold and black kit restored at the break Southwold went on to hammer home the advantage, scoring again before a late try by Woodbridge resurgence gave the healthy home crowd some hope. It wasn’t to be though and, from a defending position, The ‘Wold’ pounced again from a training ground set piece to send the ball wide on the left into space with pace for the killer blow.

A pleasant evening where a good turnout (must’ve been 100) enjoyed sporting banter, a drink or two and some tasty curry.  Thanks again to Duncan and Southwold Roger for organising it as well as Jerry for reffing, Ken for the bar, Chef Roger and volunteers that served and cleared up. I think the RFU contributed funds so thanks to them too.
