The 2015 season started with great anticipation from all involved and our squad of 22 played well in the warm up games. The hopes for this season were that promotion could be achieved in the Hert./Middx. league, that we could do well in the new East Midlands league and perhaps go one better and win the Beds. Cup final.
We should have had no concerns as the boys played well throughout the season and really gelled as a team with great support for each other. In the final analysis, played 20 matches in all and won 15 of them playing attractive rugby and scoring 115 tries. Promotion was gained in the Hert./Middx. league by finishing runners
up to London Wasps, the only team in the league to beat us, with a seasons points difference of plus 98. We won the East Midlands league winning all games and finishing with a points difference of plus 244. The Beds Cup was a great competition this season with wins in good close games against Bedford Blues and Biggleswade on the way to the final against Dunstable where the lads won 20 points to 7 and lifted the trophy. A great and enjoyable season.

The team has 3 lads playing for the Northampton Saints and 9 playing for the Beds County side this season which reflects how well the boys are playing.
Next season will be at another level with the league promotions but one which the boys will no doubt take in their stride.
