REWHC ladies lose Midlands Premier Division opener

Ben Tyler 4th Oct, 2019

RUGBY & East Warwickshire ladies first XI made a losing start to life in the Midlands Premier Division.

The ladies appeared in their first match in the division following four successive promotions, but were edged 3-1 by Sutton Coldfield Seconds.

After going two goals behind, an excellent team move finished off by Kirby Harris brought Rugby back into contention, before letting in a third.

They hope to make amends against North Notts on Saturday (12.15pm).

REWHC men’s first team were held 1-1 by Loughborough Town in a friendly, rescuing a draw thanks to Jacob Till – who was well placed to finish on the rebound following a penalty corner.

The men’s second XI found more success in their warm-up fixture against Loughborough Carillion, running out 7-2 winners.

Szymon Oszyjczyk was a man possessed with four goals to his name, whilst Paddy Parfitt, Ben Hardy and Joe Manning also registered on the scoresheet after recovering from an early Loughborough goal.
