On Saturday 26th January 2019 when both teams were playing at home supporters and VPs joined the President and Chairman for a lunch in the clubhouse and enjoyed the wine and plentiful food but mostly the catching up with old friends. The Chairman and a Committee Member of Wasps FC (the First XV's opposition) also sat down with us.
Before the lunch Club Coach Phil Smith explained his background and philosophy to training and playing the game. He emphasised in particular how the hard work the players had put in was now paying real dividends with the First XV climbing up the League having beaten the League leaders in the last match and the 2nd XV going very close against their League leaders last week in a Cup game.
The VPs and supporters were then treated to a feast of powerful running rugby from both Hendon teams, with the Firsts winning by 48 points to 5 and the Seconds by 52 points to 22.
Following the success of this occasion pre-match get togethers for our supporters will now become a regular feature for our important home games.
