From the Touchlne – Blaydon Vs Ilkley

Welcome back everyone after our short and restful break in which most of us no doubt enjoyed the Internationals on TV.

From the Director’s Chair – Blaydon Vs Ilkley

I would like to give a warm welcome to our visitors Ilkley for today’s home clash. We had a first team week off last week to rest the walking wounded but our second team had a big fixture against Novos. It was one of the strongest second teams Blaydon have been able to field for […]
