For those who don’t know - Eloise is the first team scrum half for the unbeaten ladies side and partner of first team captain Dean Oliver. Whatever she does on the pitch this season however will not come near to surpassing what she did yesterday for Steve. Make sure she does not have to buy a drink between now and New Year if you see her in the pavilion.
By way of coincidence Hersham Vets team included Dan Hough the TCC secretary who has sent on Steve and Hersham’s massive gratitude. Steve is already recovering well. Great to have a story with such a good end for Christmas.
