Newbury Make League Debut

19/10/20: The rise of Newbury Fives continued last night as the Newbury club made their league debut in a Division 3 clash with North Oxford 3 at Eton.

Regional Organiser Will Thomas has done some great work over the past couple of years building up an enthusiastic squad of players at St.Bart's and last night saw them make their league bow. The team of Will Thomas, Will Seath, Ed Porter, David Pemberton, Lee Rawlins and Rob Saint performed well against opponents who had a lot more competitive experience and although they went down 3-0, there was a lot of good Fives played and a lot of promise shown for the future, not least as the team featured a perfect mix of young and old, school-based and locally-based players. With the Newbury production line now up and running, the future looks bright and hopefully this will be just one more step on the road to Fives world domination!
