More than £5k raised at club’s Gen­tle­men’s Day

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

SATUR­DAY saw the first ever Gen­tle­men’s Day at South­port Rugby Foot­ball Club and those in at­ten­dance were richly re­warded by two ter­rific home wins for the Sec­onds and Thirds and then en­ter­tained by for­mer Liver­pool FC de­fender and TV pun­dit Mark Lawren­son and co­me­dian Jamie Suther­land.

The youth­ful Sec­ond XV ex­celled in top­pling un­beaten league lead­ers Ald­wini­ans 2s 22-15 in a thriller with the Thirds do­ing their bit in over­com­ing their coun­ter­parts from Widnes. Sadly, the Firsts’ woes on their trav­els con­tin­ued plum­met­ing 7-65 at vi­brant Glos­sop. Least said best mended, hope­fully start­ing at home to bot­tom of the ta­ble Liver­pool Col­le­giate this Satur­day.

The Sec­onds and Thirds are at Pre­ston Grasshop­pers and Mersey­side Po­lice re­spec­tively.

No game for the Colts last Sun­day but the Ladies went down 12-17 at Manch­ester.

A mag­nif­i­cent sum in ex­cess of £5000 was raised for Can­cer Char­i­ties from the Gen­tle­men’s Day. A great ef­fort by Sue Ast­wood and Louise Dale and their hard­work­ing teams.
