The celebration continues! – Fri Nov 07 saw the culmination of the year’s work on the field at the Rugby awards dinner. Dressed to almost unrecognizable and in great frame of mind all of our senior teams were fully represented. The buns were flying and good to know that passing skills were better on the pitch than off. A plethora of deserved awards were bestowed upon often unsuspecting players. “They are all best friends”. A great night , pleased to be asked to represent the Alumni! UP THE BEACH !

Gee Gage Cup
Beach 2’s save the best for last in 38-25 victory over Scottish. With a somewhat sluggish start we were behind until the last 20 min when the afterburners kicked in and we roared away to victory and the first cup of the day! With “the Dude’s” leadership, Bushe controlling the helm and the speed of the younger lads, its a hard combo to beat. Great job and enjoyable to see. A fitting and deserved end to the season.

McCormick Cup
Cup Photos October 2014- Take a look at some Cup Photos
WOW! A Cracker! Our 14th Cup is in the books. 27-22 over the Scottish. We continued to play with skill and poise as we have all year. This time, however the Scottish seemed determined to throw us off track with a relentless attack of their own and almost succeeded, but not quite! To a man, each Beacher was pushed to give his all and it proved enuf as we hung on with a stalwart defense in the waning minutes to thwart siege after siege by the Scots. Sure made the beer taste even better! Excellent job, great season. Lots of hard work with kudos to all.

Special Note!
I would be remiss if I failed to thank those of you who came out to support our teams. Throughout the regular season, the playoffs, and especially Cup Day. Absolutely mammoth support by the Blue and Gold! Ringing the field, noisy as could be and flashing the colours, it was a sight to behold. Can there be any doubt as to which Club stands at the forefront in this country? UP THE BEACH!
