Games On...?

Bon voyage - Hungerford RFC off to France!

It’s on! Hungerford RFC are off to France this May to play against Loches Rugby club – not all that far from Hungerford’s twin town Ligueuil.

A request for indication of interest in a cross-channel tour went out a couple of months back, and there’s been enough of that interest for organisers to go ahead and sort out coach travel, ferry crossings and accommodation.

They’re also organising a day’s outing to the city of Tours, famous for its medieval district and cathedral... and not quite so renowned because of Fritz, the stuffed elephant in the garden of the Musée des Beaux-Arts there (thank you, Wikipedia!).

But the high spot of the tour will, of course, be the match against Loches Rugby Club on Saturday May 4th.

The coach leaves Hungerford on Thursday May 2nd, returning the evening of May 6th, and the organisers are now asking those interested to put down their deposit and first stage payment via the team’s website to cover their coach travel, ferry crossing, four nights’ accommodation and a team polo shirt.

Visit hungerfordrfc.com to find out more.

 

 

F.A. Cup 3rd Qualifying Round – 6th October 2018

 

Hungerford Town   1  Danilo Orsi-Dadamo

Wealdstone            2  Bradley Bubb, Fumnaya Shomoton

 

Wealdstone edged through this tie to progress to the 4th qualifying round. It was a scrappy start to the game, with the visitors dominating possession but failing to create any clear cut chances. Hungerford had the first good chance with Danilo Orsi-Dadomo heading over a Marcus Johnson-Schuster cross. Fumnaya Shomoton smashed the bar after a jinking run before the Stones scored a goal ruled out for offside. Ian Herring flicked on a James Rusby long throw to force a first save out of Jonathon North.

Bradley Bubb tested Michael Luyambula before the striker flicked the ball in at the near post after more good work from Shomoton. Jeffery Monakana struck the bar before his team mate Shomoton scored the decisive goal 15 minutes from time. Orsi-Dadomo pulled one back with a neat finish but it was too late for the Crusaders to mount a comeback.
