Movember Winning Streak

100% Wins in November

Sapper Football played 3 won 3 through the month of November.

The month was going to be crucial for the season where the team would play against RLC, REME & R Sigs. In order to keep the pressure on the Gunners Sappers would need to take all 9 points. At times the team had an average age of 23 years old but with great resolve and attitude churned out results finishing of against rivals R Sigs with a 5-1 thrashing. THE FUTURES BRIGHT!!

Next game will be against Army Medical Services on 9 Dec 13 at Brompton in the Woolwich Cup 1800 KO.

REME 1  -  2  REAFC

RLC  0  -  1  REAFC
