Debut Delight & Friday Fling!

Today - Friday 6th April - sees the start of the first and second division programmes.

Reigning champions Hadley USC face a tricky looking trip to Newport A tonight while second division winners Trench A entertain Bowring A, bringing the League's new veterans inter-league captain Peter Roden face to face with his old team-mates after leaving the Wellington club over the winter to join the promoted club.

Trench will be looking to go one better in the Saturday Division, starting tomorrow afternoon, when they host Donnington Wood while champs Sinclair start their defence away at Shifnal.

But it was Sinclair who suffered on opening night in the Dennis Lewis Thursday Division at Shawbury as newcomers Elephant & Castle's powerful line-up enjoyed debut delight in the form of a 37-15 points success, with 7 winners out of 8, that puts them top of the formative table.
