PILGRIMS GAME OFF
Pilgrims opening Counties 2 East league game at home to Maidstone on Saturday, September 3rd has been called off.. The club has been trying to find an alternative fixture but has been unsuccessful. The league game has been postponed at Maidstone’s request as they have safety concerns about a lack of contact training due to the present hard playing surfaces. It is a disappointment for the Pilgrims who were looking forward to making their debut in the new league after an encouraging victory over Thant Wanderers 1st in last week’s pre-season friendly. As other club teams are without scheduled fixtures there will be no rugby at the Marine Travel Ground on Saturday.
