Emphatic pre-season wins for Burnham

Burnham Rugby Club enjoy pre-season victories over Winscombe and Wellington.

BURNHAM’S pre-season friendly matches have set the tone for the season with emphatic wins over local rivals Winscombe and Wellington.

The first game was away to Winscombe with some 35 players making themselves available with a mixture of first and second team players plus some new faces. Burnham recorded a 48-10 victory.

A week later, they travelled south to Wellington, who won both fixtures last season. With only 18 players available to Wellingtons 30+, revenge was sweet with a 29-0 win.

Burnham 1st XV are back in the Western Counties North League after some mid-season changes by the RFU with the seconds continuing in Somerset Three South.
