TRIBUTE SOUTH WEST 1 WEST IVYBRIDGE 31 pts BRIDGWATER & ALBION 26 pts This narrow defeat probably ensures that Bridgwater will be playing South West 1 rugby again next season. They needed a five point victory at Ivybridge to leapfrog the Devon side into second place but it was not to be. After a thrilling [...]
Well done lads – match report to follow….. possibly…..
Bridgwater second team hosted Wellington seconds at College Way after an extended break in the fixture list. Their one week break became two weeks after last weekend’s away trip to Chard was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch. The second team welcomed back Adrian Tew from the first team as well as handing débuts to Kyran Devitt [...]
Well done guys! Mike’s report will follow on Monday as usual……..
Albion’s Dirtrackers were left kicking their heels again for the third time this season after Taunton III withdrew from the league. Hot on their heels was the withdrawal of Wellington III who have also struggled to fulfil matches this season. Ivel Barbarians II pulled out earlier. This now leaves Somerset 2 South with ten sides [...]
Bridgy Colts are the only team at home this Valentines day, Saturday 14th February and take on Wells Colts in the Somerset under 18 league with KO at 2.30pm. Wells are the league leaders even ahead of Wellington who have won it for the past three seasons, so it’s a big ask but our lads [...]
Bridgy were unrecognisable as the same team that lost heavily the previous week. Their closing down of Weston runners and first up tackling was a vast improvement. So much so that, three minutes in the Bridgwater centres were caught well offside in their enthusiasm. Weston slotted the resultant penalty. For the remainder of the first [...]
This result is the heaviest defeat for Bridgy’s colts for some. The main factors being some very poor tackling from Bridgwater in defence and (credit to Wellington) the sheer mobility and physical fitness of all their players, of which they appear to have almost two full squads again! In truth, going forward, Bridgwater exercise good [...]
The minis and juniors were hosted this morning by Cheddar Valley RFC. It was cold and blustery but more importantly remained dry. They boys and girls of the Youth Rugby squads had a great mornings rugby with some fantastic play from both sides. The U11′s also took on visitors from Wells. Our thanks go to [...]
Thanks to Tor and Ivel/Yeovil RFC visiting College Way today and giving us a great and entertaining mornings rugby. Particularly great to see Tor Youth Section back on their feet and playing great youth rugby.
Whatever the outcome of Albion’s important visit to Ivybridge on Saturday, one player will be celebrating whatever the result. Of course, both he and the club look for victory against second-place Ivybridge who are just six points ahead of Albion and with four matches in the league to play. These sides are now undoubtedly the [...]
