Rugby record first victory of the season against Barford Tigers

THE LONG awaited first win of the season finally came for Rugby & East Warwickshire after they beat Barford Tigers in the Midland Premier Division.

Rugby had gone five games without a win which had increased the pressure on a team sitting near the bottom of the table.

But they managed to scrape a narrow win at Barford on Saturday with Szymon Oszyjczyk scoring the only goal of the game to take his tally for the season up to six goals.

Rugby will be hoping they can build on this first win and start climbing the table when they take on Stourport this Saturday.

There was also joy for the second team who recorded an emphatic 7-0 win at home to Belper to also record their first three points of the season.

The third team tasted a heavy 7-0 defeat away at Birmingham University and the fourth team were also on the receiving end of a 10-0 thumping away at Loughborough Students.

There was however better news for the fifth team who beat Beeston 2-0 and the sixth and seventh team also tasted success by beating Hampton 3-0 and Saints 5-2 respectively.

In comparison the men’s side, Rugby ladies are enjoying a fantastic start to the season and five wins out of five puts them top of the table.

On Saturday they beat Sutton Coldfield 3-0 to maintain their 100 per cent winning start with Izzy Powell (2) and Nicki Siarbawa getting the goals.

The ladies’ second team lost 1-0 at Nuneaton and the third team also tasted defeat after losing 4-1 at home to Olton.
