Stamford College kicked off their pre-season friendly programme with a hard-fought 12-12 draw against Aylestone Athletic on Saturday.

The match was dedicated as a charity day to raise money and awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.

Old Boys had a number of key players either on their holidays or out Injured but, with pride in the colours, a number of the old guard suited up which gave the coaching staff a perfect opportunity to give the new faces a chance to showcase what they have and also to move players into new positions.

New skipper Haydn Johns and vice-captain Carl Walker both led Old Boys well and will continue to do so for the up-and-coming season.

Walker was one of their try scorers along with Sam Durman as Old Boys showed great promise in getting over the gain line with a solid pack working hard in the scrum and the backs running some good lines and finding gaps within the defence but on a whole strongly defended as one unit. Some exciting new players also started the fixture.

The Old Boys would like to express a special thanks to Aylestone who always turn up in good form and helped support the charity day.

A fundraising evening was then held in the Hurdler with darts ace Martin 'Wolfie' Adams making a guest appearance with live music from Halo. The event helped raise £200.

Old Boys train every Tuesday and Thursday at 7pm at the Welland Academy and newcomers are always welcome.
