Auld Grey Finalists
Given the 1st Xvs upcoming fixture list and that the A66 will become a well trodden path, the Auld Greys set out on a pathfinder mission on Saturday to take part in the Acklam Walking rugby fest.
The squad of honed, drilled sporting machines were joined by our supporters club (4 off) on a day that didn’t see temperatures fall below 28 degs.
Split into 2 teams, the Auld Greys played in a succession of round robin matches between the other 12 clubs, most which were A) much younger, B) much bigger, and C) much faster.
At the close of these games the Auld Greys were pitched against Acklam (see A,B,C above, plus D) had some 1st XV in there ) in the final, but unfortunately they came runners up losing 3-1.
This has been a first test for the Auld Greys against some good competition and everyone who took part carried the Kendal shirt, demonstrated excellent fitness, skills and team spirit and top of the list…. FUN.
Our runners up trophy will be in the trophy cabinet in the lounge bar.
They Can, Can you?
Oh Ps one of the teams we played against will be playing our 1sts next season. The Auld Greys won, so, no pressure!
