Sad news re Geof Jordan & Mike Knight
Quiz on 25th Sept has been cancelled
• Our ex Captain, Chairman and President Geof Jordan has lost his long fight with cancer and died this week. Our sympathies go to his wife, Nessie and family. Geof was Captain of the club in 1974-1976 and had two spells of President, 1984-86 and 2000-13. He was Chairman from 1988-93 and was very instrumental in setting up our M&J section. He was a tireless worker for the club and will be greatly missed. There is no information yet on the funeral.
• It is also with great sadness that Roger Roberts has advised of the sudden passing away of one of our M&J coaches. Michael (Mike) Knight was a coach in the U9's for both our club and Kenilworth Town FC. He always gave 100% and was always enthusiastic with great ideas and smile on his face. Roger does not have any more details at this stage and knows the club will all pull together to show their respect at this tragic time for Lisa and the family. He has two sons that I know of. One of them young Jack in the U9's. He will be sorely missed by all.
• We are top of the league after three straight bonus point wins. Last week we very nearly threw it away against Stoke after having dominated most of the game but late tries from Stoke put a wee bit of pressure on which we survived. Our tries came from Joe Jepps, Jimmy Middleton, Mikel Andreson and Gaz Renowden. The report and piccies are on the web site.
• The Colts lost narrowly, 17-19 at Stratford whilst the 3's drew 12 all with Shottery, Harry Kaufman scoring both tries.
• This week the first XV are back on the road away at Stratford. Prior to last week Stratford were top of the league but lost last week away at Hereford to drop to third. The Colts are in the Pool as are the 3's with Leamington pulling out of their fixture. On Sunday our Ladies play their first ever game at the Cow Patch, kick off 2.30. On the main pitch our 2's are playing Berkswell & Balsall in the Warwickshire Cup, kicking off at 3.
• Next week (3rd Oct) the ones are at home to Walsall and this will be preceded by a Former Players Lunch. There will also be a Beer Festival commencing on the 2nd.

• On the 10th Oct we have organised a bus for our away game at Whitchurch and if you fancy going on it then please contact Joss Selby.
