Grove vs. Witney (Pre-season friendly)
Grove lose first pre-season friendly
A somewhat depleted 1st team squad from Grove lost 0 : 34 to Witney on Saturday. Clearly more of the expected 1st team needed to be present to make this a meaningful test but good performances from newcomers Chris Clare and Harry Carr were very encouraging. Paul Miles, Jamie Fredericks, Steve Dixey, Roger Sevier and Stewart Sherwood stood out as having good games and James Kerr's work-rate was exceptional. Unfortunately centre Ben Law, who was really making his presence felt, had to leave the field early in the game with a badly gashed eye.
