During the summer, the club spent a considerable amount on draining the main pitch, after a pretty difficult winter. Facilitated by a grant from the RFU, the work was undertaken with assistance of a considerable donation from Wharfedale Marathon Events, organisers of the annual distance event.
The Club is grateful to the RFU and to the event organisers for their generosity in making possible this essential work.
Tom Baines, playing for the Foresters against Leeds Met, was shown a red card after only 15 minutes on the recommendation of a Touch Judge (not, it should be noted, an “Assistant Referee”). The alleged offence was a head butt, but his “victim”, to his great credit, was at pains after the match to tell all and sundry that no offence had been committed, and confirmed in an email that the decision was quite wrong and that he hoped that no proceedings would take place.
In the event, no evidence was forthcoming and the red card was rescinded, with the result that Tom continues without a blemish on his pristine record.
Details of the 1st XV player’s stats for 2014/15 are now available under “The Team” tag at the top of the page.

The new season has started, and forms are available for membership of the Cavalry Club – click here to download one.
The Cavalry Club was formed four seasons ago, to raise funds for the club after the withdrawal of financial support from the RFU for the community game. Not only has the Cavalry Club succeeded in that important regard, it has developed a personality of its own, involving its members in complimentary match sponsorship, coach trips to selected away fixtures, outings and other social events.
As you can see from the application form there are three categories of membership, both corporate and individual. If you want to talk to someone, contact organiser Adam Mason on 07977 932938 or at email@example.com.
