We are delighted to announce that we have won the much coveted and highly prestigious <Rugby World Magazine> Team of The Year award for 2019/20!
We feature in July’s magazine which hits your favourite newsagent/supermarket this morning – get down there and pick up a copy (and one for your mum, nan, aunty, you get the message!)
It is fair to say that the 2019/20 season, albeit truncated, was far from ordinary. Dominating Midlands 2 East (South) from the opening weekend to achieve promotion as champions with only one defeat and a draw away from a clean sweep.
The season highlight ultimately was victory in the Midlands Intermediate Cup Final which came in front of a record crowd at Wright’s Meadow as what felt like the entire town roared their side home in a thrilling encounter against Malvern RFC.
The silverware didn’t stop at 1st XV level either, with our swashbuckling 2nd XV being crowned Banana Bread Merit Table Champions with an unbeaten record!
Club Chairman, Lee Beaumont said “We are all very proud of the teamwork and dedication across the whole club that led to the reward of a historic season on the pitch and ultimately this fantastic recognition from Rugby World.”
Whilst the dreams of a Twickenham final were snuffed out by the curtailment of the season. Buzzards are relishing the prospect of next season where we will compete in London 1 North .
We are looking for new players to join us at Buzzards as we look to write the next chapter in the history of this wonderful club, if you would like to play for Buzzards in 2020/21 season, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
