Oxfordshire 12 : Surrey 52

4 years ago By John Sevier

Oxfordshire lose out to Surrey in County Championship Shield Semi-Final.

On Saturday 24th May Grove RFC were honoured to be able to host one of the Semi-Finals of the 2014 County Championship Shield Competition.

The match was between Oxfordshire and reigning Shield holders Surrey. Unfortunately for the home county Surrey were in sparkling form and produced a near faultless display of fast, beautifully flowing rugby. The Oxfordshire lads, including a large contingent of Grove players, put up a show of great resistance and never gave up though the task of beating their opponents looked like being a near impossibility from the outset. It is to Oxfordshire's credit that in the 2nd half they were able to contain the score to just 5 : 12 in Surrey's favour, the half time score having been 7 : 40.

Our club home page shows some action shots from the event for which credit goes to photographer Tracey Keogh of Windsor RFC. There is also an album of all Tracey's pictures here on our website.
