Old Pats v Wooton Bassett

Wooton Bassett

The home 1XV match against Royal Wooton Bassett is moved to the Prince of Wales Stadium as there’s a risk of standing water at Everest Road

The final match of 2019, the 6th decade at our Everest Road home is to be relocated to the nearby Prince of Wales Stadium due to the weather. The match will kick off at 2pm before returning to the Clubhouse for some festivities.

Here’s Head Coach Chris Downes to explain: “We’ve been forced into the change because of the risk of cancellation at Everest Road. Standing water is an instant ‘No’ in the modern age and we don’t want anyone calling the match off.

“It’s annoying because we’ve all played in worse, both at home and away. Some say my best games were in the mud but the biggest priority is to make sure the game is played – we’ve already got one match to replay in the New Year.”

The home game against Marlborough which was cancelled on 23 November will likely be replayed on 25th January. Details of that to follow.
