Wanderers 2018 presentation Evening
The 2017/18 season came to a close with the Annual Presentation Evening.
After the fun of the Jacob La Roche testimonial game the Foxhunter bar hosted the night which was compered by Chris Dowell Bennett and Alyn Humphreys. Before the formal part of the evening began there was some informal fund raising for Jacob with a game of pitch and toss and a round of heads and tails which was won by Colin Fulthorpe after a head to head against Jacob himself. Colin then entertained, those who could hear him, with some of his stand up routine.
We then turned our attention to the formal part of the evening which was introduced by President David Webber and started with the recognition for those who work behind the scenes of the rugby section.
