RCdeB turned out in force to celebrate Peter West's birthday
with a match arranged by Simon Parry against old boys (plus 3
offspring all called Will) from St.George's. Divided loyalty for
Simon, Pete and a couple of Chrisses who played with RCdeB on
tour. True to form St.George's lost as they always used to in
the 60s despite playing superbly throughout bar a couple of loose
goals from Mark Jones conceded towards the end. As was customary
an excuse was discovered and, sure enough, in this instance it
was pointed out that RCdeB played 12 men for the entire 1st half.
However a good time was had by all and the birthday boy was allowed
to score twice for St.George's.
Many thanks to Carolyn Gubbins (wife/mother of St.George's dazzling
attack) for supplying photographic evidence of this momentous
