The charity Boxing Day clash was opened up in traditional fashion with a glass of port to remember past players.

On the field, club captain Marcus Badham crossed for the winning try for the over 25s with the last phase of play, while young Jay Greaves had the honour of kicking the conversion for the seniors.

The celebrations continued post-match in the clubhouse, with total proceeds from the day hitting £700 and going towards the cost of a defibrillator to be mounted on the main pitch area.
