Grassington’s Dickensian Festival starts a bit early this year – 30th November – which means that we have two home fixtures during the Festival: 30th November vs Old Albanian and 7th December vs Doncaster.
Upper Wharfedale School, which at any other time kindly opens its car park to our supporters free of charge, uses the Festival to help with its budget, and charges all comers a nominal £5 donation. This will apply equally to Festival goers and to rugby spectators, so anyone who normally takes advantage of this free facility at any other time during the season is forewarned of the charge and is requested to show understanding.
Our attendances are well up this season, and we anticipate that there will be a bumper crowd, particularly when Doncaster visit. The good news is that the Dickensian Festival will be over before Fylde’s battalions show up on 21st December.
In attempt to keep the pot boiling in a season when fixtures are hard to find, the management is pleased to announce that it has arranged two fixtures with the upwardly mobile Darlington Mowden Park club.
Firstly, on Friday 17 January (the day before our National One fixture at Esher) we play hosts under the lights. kick-off 19:30. The return will take place on Friday 4th April, again at 19:30.
Club members can still apply for tickets through Colin Raeburn. Here‘s a form.
This was (Upper) Wharfedale’s first ever season, but the earliest photo we can find is of the following season. Please if there is anyone out there with that first team photo in their attic, do let us have it!
