Hungerford FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/RUGBYCLUBMAG Hungerford RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB T he first Hungerford Rugby Club was established in 1929 when a group of gentlemen decided to form the club in the Plume of Feathers. The team played up until the outbreak of the war in 1939 and then was not re-established until 1984. At present, the club is based on Priory Road in Berkshire and their first team currently competes in the Berks/Bucks and Oxon Premier League. They are led by the team of President Steve Mills and Chair Robert Cox and the club is looking to progress under their guidance. Last season the team put together a solid league campaign as they compiled a record of eleven wins and nine defeats from their twenty matches. This saw them finish in the top half of the table with fifty one points on the board. This should provide them with a solid platform from which to build as they look ahead to their 2017/18 campaign. The club has already started preparations to make sure that they are able to improve this time around and as long as they are able to retain their current group of players and can perhaps make one or two quality additions they should be in with a good chance of pushing on up the league. 10 Issue 72
