East Midlands v Northumberland, County Championship, Sat May 20, 15:00
Ampthill’s Olney Field is the venue for this, the last of the County Championship round robin fixtures this coming Saturday, May 20th.
East Midlands, the core of whose players are from Ampthill’s senior squad, won their first fixture 21-24 away against Eastern Counties but lost, 32-24 again away, at Caldy. Having taken a 0-17 lead they were unable to stem the tide of a winning fight back from Cheshire.
The revised format of the County Championship this season and very strong results from Lancashire & Yorkshire now sees East Midlands with only a slight chance of progressing to the Twickenham finals day.
This game represents your last chance to see competitive level 3/4 rugby before the summer break, so come on down to Dillingham Park.
