You will well remenber our promise to you, our devoted supporters, that we would repair the damage inflicted upon us by our near neighbours, Sandford Springs Savages, a day before our match at Mapledurham.
The BW Captain held a ” war council pow wow” prior to the match after we had devoured a Full English ready to avenge the six -nil defeat suffered in 2019 at the hands of the Mohawks. The message was “no quarter asked and no quarter given” as the two sides locked horns in  an immense struggle to reign supreme.
The battling braves answered every call and emerged victorious with Neil and Tony delivering the final win to take us over the winning line.
When interviewed at the post match press conference the Braves Captain heaped praise upon the whole team but paid special tribute to the two freshmen in the team Andy Bartlett and Bill Osman, both played with determination and skill to help secure two vital points for the team.
So, our fantastic run of form continues. Let’s take it forward to Sherfield next week and seek to do the double over the Sherfield Redskins.
The braves send you limitless thanks for your never ceasing, ever increasing,  boundless support.
Best wishes,
