Oakham RFC’s President’s Weekend was a resounding success both on and off the field.

On the field the Oaks First XV won 24-22 against Melton, the Second XV won 43-21 against Market Harborough and in a brilliant display of youth rugby Callum Crellin Colts beat Henry Wills Colts 27-10.

All games were played in great competitive spirit and watched by a couple of hundred who enjoyed a ploughman’s lunch or barbecue, beer festival with 16 guest beers, champagne bar, band and disco.

Outgoing club president Keith Crellin was delighted with the day. Chairman Simon Harries presented Keith with his presidential tankard and Keith’s wife with a bouquet of flowers.

On Sunday there was a family rugby themed fun day was enjoyed by all. Presentations of certificates and medals were made to all the young players.

The recently established satellite club for girls at Catmose College and the after school club at Uppingham Community College came together for a training session and mini match followed by a demo match from Market Harborough girls and a touring team from Milton Keynes.

A fast and furious, no holds barred match left the local girls inspired and training starts on Sunday midday to 1.30pm and every following Sunday for the girls.

A new Girls Section will be established at the club in September when all girls under 15 will be welcome.
