Wisbech hosts friendly rugby fundraiser with Oakham
In a tough but highly entertaining match Oakham took the spoils with a narrow 19-17 win over the hosts Wisbech in this pre-season match.
Wisbech will hope to build on this good performance when they open their London 3 Eastern Counties league campaign away to Southwold RFC on Saturday, KO 3pm.
Last Saturday’s friendly was also the official handover of the £2,500 raised by Wisbech RUFC for the Savenaca Koroibulileka Trust.
The cheque was handed over by Wisbech chairman Leonard Veenendaal.
Midlands 2 side Oakham play a league above Wisbech
Wisbech used to regularly play Oakham up to around the mid-1980’s when Wisbech started league rugby. WRUFC felt this fixture was appropriate to reconnect with a club it had a lot of history with as part of their 70th anniversary celebrations.
