Match Preview – Huddersfield v Wharfedale

December 11th, 2018 Comments off

A hard fought victory in, to say the least, inclement conditions saw the Green Machine get back on track after a couple of recent reversals. They must now take that confidence into this coming weekend’s game against high flying local rivals Huddersfield.

With the ever impressive viaduct overlooking their Lockwood Park ground, the Field currently lie in fourth place in National 2 North with 8 wins to go alongside a deserved 20 all draw at Fylde last Saturday.

Although rugby football in Huddersfield dates back to 1869, the Rugby Union club was formed in 1909 and named Huddersfield Old Boys. They changed name to their current moniker in 1946 and moved from their Waterloo base to their new home in 1996. The club won the Yorkshire Cup for the only time to date in 2011. After beating the Dale at the semi final stage they overcame Hull 25-18 in the final at York.

Previous encounters between the two clubs sees the Greens holding the upper hand in league matches. With 5 wins to 2, in games dating back to season 1988/89, Wharfedale will be looking to extend that record. Huddersfield will certainly have something to say about that this coming Saturday.

Kick off is at 3.00pm and the address is Lockwood Park, Brewery Drive, Huddersfield HD4 6EN.

The team selection will follow shortly.

Gordon Brown Retires from Barbarians Committee

December 10th, 2018 Comments off

After many years service our very own Gordon Brown has retired from the Barbarians committee. During his time with the Barbarians he was Honorary Treasurer for 10 years and Honorary Secretary for 5 years. He incorporated the club and set up its charity, the Barbarians Rugby Charitable Trust, which since its establishment has donated over £250,000 to rugby-related and other causes.

Gordon is shown here at the time of his retirement with Welsh legend and three times Lions player Derek Quinnell who was the player who made the final pass to Gareth Edwards for THAT try.

The Greens Go Green

November 29th, 2018 Comments off

As part of the club’s commitment to being more environmentally friendly we have introduced a new system for reducing plastic waste. Thanks to sponsorship from The Fountaine Inn and the Gamekeepers Inn we are happy to introduce our reusable plastic glasses.

For safety reasons all drinks taken pitch-side must be in plastic glasses. So to reduce waste and flimsy plastic glasses being left everywhere we now have these lovely environmentally friendly reusable glasses. When you order a pint you will be charged the additional £1 and then you can either keep the glass as a memento or get your £1 back when you return the glass to the bar.

This will reduce waste, save on water and washing up and prevent litter.

We hope you agree that they are a pretty good start to our ‘Greens Go Green’ campaign and a big thank you goes out to Lisa and her bar staff, along with our two sponsors for getting this off the ground.
