On Saturday 11th April Blackheath Rugby Club held its 5th Ladies Day at the Rectory Field with some of the proceeds going to The South East London Breast Cancer Trust (SELBCT) .
The day was very warm and sunny as the ladies arrived in their best clothes and a large marquee with pink carpet on the floor was set up for the party, which the ladies paid to attend in aid of SELBCT. The drinks were served by ‘butlers in the buff’ wearing a bow tie round their neck and a pink waiters apron– these waiters were all players who were injured or not picked to play that day. The team donned pink shirts for the occasion and these were auctioned off after the match to raise more money.
Ealing’s open style of play gave Blackheath chances and, despite missing some experienced players the hosts enjoyed plenty of possession in opposition territory during the opening minutes. However, later on in the match the spilt possession saw the visitors take the lead comfortably. The final score was Blackheath 12 Ealing Trailfinders 45. Although the result was disappointing as Blackheath lost, it didn’t dampen the spirits of the ladies!
We would like to congratulate SELBCT and Blackheath Rugby Club on their 5th successful Ladies Day.
