Cady’s stunning treble
TOP MAN: Dan Cady celebrates his hat-trick with the Chesham cheerleaders MAN of the match Dan Cady celebrated a hat-trick of tries from his own half for Chesham RFC in style on Saturday – with a bevy of cheerleaders.
While it is not usual to see poms poms and razzmatazz at Bucks, Berks & Oxon Premier Division games, the cheerleaders were at Chesham as part of a fun-filled opening day of the season.
Camera crews were also present at Chartridge Lane to make a film about the club’s involvement in a JC Deceux nationwide billboard campaign during the Rugby World Cup.
Chesham rose to the occasion with a 34-14 win over Slough, with centres Billy Moore and Alex Hanney each adding a try to Cady’s treble, and fly half Nick Jones kicking two conversions.
A combined second and third XV side also beat Berkhamsted 24-10, but the ladies went down 17-5 at Old Albanians, despite a Jane Morris try following a strong run from Jen Harvey. The first team are at home to Tadley this Saturday.
