Did wonder why I'd heard different from the club about Cov Bears A to the list I saw.

Do these set ups have cross-over fixtures. Cornish Rebels could do with more games?

No, because West of England has 6 teams. Think there's a cup extra but that's not a lot

 

Thank you.

London Cup preliminary draw was done on Monday night.  As double winners and Entry League winners, South West London Chargers and Newham have been given automatic byes to the quarters.  They're joined by Hemel Stags A and Eastern Rhinos, who drew byes from the hat.  Remaining ties are going to be played on the weekend of the 25/26 April:

 

Wests Warriors vs. Fulham Foxes
St Albans Centurions vs. Beckenham Bears
Staines Titans vs. Esher Exiles
London Skolars A vs. Elmbridge Eagles

 

There will be a cup and shield competition for the quarter finalists but what will become of the teams who bomb out at the Preliminary Round stage is yet to be decided.

When i was at Kingston as was we used to draw players primarily from Esher and the odd few from Staines

Amazing to think they are now having their own derby!

Not just that, there are now four teams in the area between the juniors at Richmond, the seniors of Esher and the all-ages clubs at Staines and Elmbridge. Add in St Mary's students team, is there just a mass of players or is everybody being spread too thinly?

It's a tricky one, would you rather have one premier division team or 2 division 1 teams in an area? Also inner west London has 3 teams at the Chargers plus 2 ANZAC social clubs. Probably spread too thinly is my answer, but we have slightly too few clubs in the rest of London (at the very least one in South East London is needed)

Speaking to the Chargers, the B grade will be a very casual thing. Given they've had all their home matchdays aligned, it allows the flexibility to have guys do a little double duty from B to A and A to Firsts. The suburban teams seem to have their own development pipeline, be it through juniors or via linkups.

Just picked up from Ian Ramsdale's blog that South London Storm hope to play some open age friendlies again in 2014. Talk of an Eastbourne Eagles seeing the light of day too down on the south coast.

There's an open meeting tonight at their old ground Streatham-Croydon RFC, though it's my understanding this will not likely be the venue they're using right now.

It was a good meeting with a pretty good turnout, and faces both old and new! Croydon Hurricanes were represented and we've agreed to work together on a number of issues.

 

Our aim is to participate in the Masters competition, and play a handful of Open Age friendly games this year as a precursor to re-joining competition proper next season. This year the team will be a mix of old-timers, former Storm-Academy players, current Hurricanes U17, and a handful of new recruits.

 

We've already acquired a kit and first sponsorship/donation, and will have some stash to sell very shortly. Website will be up and running soon. Level 2 coach is sorted.

 

As bbfaz writes, we won't be at Streatham-Croydon this year as we lost out to an American Football team that attracts crowds of 500-750 a game.

 

After a year long hibernation the club is back up and running. 1997 to 2014...

Out of interest in the London area what is the history-longitivity of local clubs. Fulham-Broncos-Quins the longest entity with Hemel and Skolars in pursuit? Does news of London Storm re-forming form a sort of precedent. Does anyone think that having a cluster of clubs nearby assist in keeping the game more in the spotlight and strengthens the development base.

Elmbridge Eagles are a lot older than Skolars (unsure who was first out of them and Hemel) but have been known by loads of names. St Ives Roosters and Eastern Rhinos (again both have been known under different names) also predate Skolars

Hemel go back to the early 80s IIRC, Skolars to the early 90s. Relatively speaking they are both ancient but I'm pretty sure that Hemel are older.

I'm guessing the pre-cursors of Elmbridge (Surrey Heath Squirrels) go back to the late 80s

BJW would probably be the man for that
