Bideford RFC vs Okehampton RFC (sponsored by the OSA)

The Old Shebbearians’ Association are sponsoring the game between Bideford RFC and Okehampton RFC on December 2nd.

In this fixture last year Bideford won 12 – 5 to extend their run of good home form over the Oaks. However, since that victory the Chiefs have won only 6 times and found themselves on the end of two heavy defeats in Okehampton.

It would be great to have a sizeable Old Shebbearian turn out so put it in the diary and we’ll see you there as guests of the club for drinks and buffet from 1230 with kick off at 1430.

Full details of this and all future events can be found on the events calendar.

Bideford RFC vs Okehampton RFC (sponsored by the OSA)

The Old Shebbearians’ Association are sponsoring the game between Bideford RFC and Okehampton RFC on November 26th.

It’s something of a grudge match for Okehampton as they head to North Devon for the first time since 2012/13. The Chiefs were promoted that year and ran out 34 – 13 victors.

They’ll fancy themselves to match that achievement against newly promoted visitors but, with the Oaks continuing the form that saw them lose just three times last season, the only guarantee is that this will be a cracking afternoon’s sport.

It would be great to have a sizeable Old Shebbearian turn out so put it in the diary and we’ll see you there as guests of the club for refreshments from 1230.

Full details of this and all future events can be found on the events calendar.

Refreshments will be available at both the college and at the rugby club.

Full details of all Old Shebbearian events can be found in the events diary.
