Leicestershire Junior Cup Final 1911 Coalville v Hinckley

Unfortunately there is not much information about the match. I found a short report in the Hinckley Echo dated 19th April 1911. I have the Hinckley C...

Re: A visit to Oxford in October

Not too hot on hotels in Oxford. The Ashmoleon Museum should be open on a Sunday. Also the Botanical Gardens in High Street may be open and they are right on the river. The Kassam Stadium is on the outside of the ring road. You will need to make use of taxis or public transport. Try this link http:/...

Re: Oxford Welsh

Re: Tom Croft

It could be that Tom doesn't want the information made generally available for some reason. Where I work the policy is that if someone is off work the customer is advised that the person is absent but no reason offered. All down to data protection I believe.

Re: Falcons staying up

Re: Harlequins & The Title

Seemed like a polite question to me. And an equally polite reply. Another question could be 'Are they all going to be naked in the semi-finals?' . My apologies for any poor punctuation.
