A Christmas cracker of a Saturday..... - Written by Mark Randell on 22/12/2015

With Christmas now only 2 more sleeps away and having just about recovered from the extended festivities on Saturday evening, I am now able to bring you up to date with the results from the three games played by the senior teams. The 1st XV put in a strong team performance against Ellingham & Ringwood at home securing a 5 point bonus win and although Santa had a few names on his naughty list due to penalty count, this has now all been forgotten and the big man will be paying every playe......Cont to article

Will Saturday be full of festive cheer?...... - Written by Mark Randell on 14/12/2015

The 1st XV will be looking to end 2015 on a 'high' and get back to winning ways after a narrow defeat away to Sandown & Shanklin last Saturday going down 27-22 but very importantly securing a very important bonus point.  Ellingham & Ringwood will be our visitors who I know will 'put up a fight' and not make the fixture easy for us. The lads know that they will have to turn up ready for the challenge and will be working hard in training on Tuesday and Thursday to tighten u......Cont to article

Fantastic Saturday at Millbrook - Written by Mark Randell on 05/12/2015

In what can only be classed as "challenging" conditions with strong winds effecting the two pitches, both teams recorded good wins respectively. The 1st XV played Fordingbridge and chalked up a 44-15 win scoring 5 tries in the process whilst the 2nd XV had a convincing 78-0 win against Basingstoke 3's. Lots to work on in the tackle & ruck area this week in training as we prepare for next weekends games. A potential 'banana skin' game awaits the 1's with an "overseas trip" to Sandown ......Cont to article

Millbrook through to the next round! - Written by Mark Randell on 29/11/2015

Millbrook secured a safe passage through to the last 16 of the RFU Junior Vase with a good team performance against Hellingly RFC who had made the long trip to Redbridge Lane from East Sussex with a convincing 48-10 win, scoring 7 tries in the process. All the hard work at training is really starting to show with a disciplined performance by every member of the 19 man squad who really stuck to the "task in hand", who looked dangerous every time they had ball in hand and scored some great team t......Cont to article
