Match Report

                              REDINGENSIANS 2ND 57 CANTERBURY PILGRIMS 0

The season ended in a bang of the wrong type. Needing a win to take second place in the Zoo League the Pilgrims could not raise a full squad even with the 3rd XV having their game cancelled,. So 15 players made the journey to Reading to try their luck. Lack of match practice(opposition have cancelled 7 out of the last 9 games), and missed tackles, something you can’t do at any level!, meant that Canterbury were 36-0 down by half-time! The second half was better, but with no options on the bench the squad got tired. A Redingensian player was red carded for dangerous play but still the Pilgrims could not score in Elliott Deacon and Giles Westgarth final game for the club. End result, a heavy defeat and fourth place in the league.  A big thank you to the team, especially Phil Cotterall, making his debut at 46 and 364 days, and James Read, back from Exeter for Easter, without whom we would not have played. The other reason we were short is that eight of Pilgims usual squad were with the first team.

Pilgrims: P.Cotterall, E.Deacon. C. Watson.S.Jaynes, J Craig, J Reid. C Butler, G Westgarth, J.Weave.W Hilton, I. Horne, C. Kingsman, B Nash ,C Teehan, G. Hilton, A,Veale
