20180916-GondoliersA bright early Spring day welcomed the South Berks visitors to Broadwater's sand pitch and Gondoliers aplenty. A good mix of youth and experience...

20181013-M1sTeamGHC Men’s 1s were on fire against a determined Blackheath side focused on the possibility of three points to stay within reach of promotion.

20181020-ShadowsTeam-crop4GHC Shadows hosted Trinity Mid-Whitgiftians at home on the Sand at fortress broadwater fresh from last week's herioics at top of the table Horley.

20181013-M1sTeamThe GHC Men’s 1s unbeaten run has come to end after a fantastic 18 match streak. A deserving Horsham side were the team to do it at their place on Saturday afternoon.

20181020-ShadowsTeam-crop4The Shadows travelled to play league leaders Horley in high spirits after an unbeaten run in the league this calendar year.

20180916-GondoliersWhat a stunning day it was in every sense. The Gondos arrived at Broadwater in good spirits excited about their run around in the sunshine against bottom of the league 10 man Havant.

20181013-M1sTeamSaturday saw the sun shine down on Broadwater School for the Men’s 1st XI game against Eastbourne. The heat added to what was already set up to be a tough encounter, following a first round draw down on the South Coast.

20181013-M1sTeamFive games to go and five weeks of hard work and commitment left for the Men’s 1st XI...

20180916-GondoliersIt was with some justified trepidation that the Gondoliers set off to play top of the table Oxford Hawks...

20180916-GondoliersThe Gondoliers comprehensively overcame a strengthened Winchester side by the massive margin of 2-1 after going behind early on.

Mullins hit back to level the scores and Savage, moving up from the back, scored from an improbably tight angle to net the winner. In between, Mullins, with a clear sight on goal, managed to hit the upright from the top of the D.

The Gondoliers dropped their tempo both in terms of ball speed and positioning in response to the home side's lack of pace and urgency, and were unable to execute their short passing game plan in the absence of our own players within 25 yards of the ball carrier.

Fitter made a solid debut at sweeper, and thanks to Gould, Herrmann and Mowat for guesting for the opposition and it was good to see Shelbourne's debut for the year. 

Good hospitality was provided at the Hursley Club. On offer was a choice of tangy curries (with seconds on offer; though not thirds), nice beer and very entertaining rugby (unless you are Welsh).
