It will be a poignant occasion for everyone connected with Wymondham Rugby Club on Saturday when the first team host Thurston in London Three Eastern Counties.

The Red and Blacks will be playing their final fixture at their traditional base at Tuttles Lane before moving to Barnards Fields, a new home built on farmland just outside town.

It’s an important game for Wymondham, with the team looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season at Wisbech last weekend.

The first game at Barnards Fields will take place on Saturday, October 20, with leaders Holt providing the opposition.

Holt are without a game tomorrow, so Wymondham have a chance to draw level with them at the top on 20 points. Third placed West Norfolk are at Ipswich YM while Crusaders will be looking to build on their first win when they visit bottom side Woodbridge. Elsewhere Fakenham entertain Thetford and Wisbech are at Ely.
