Tom Best – 250 caps for Canterbury
Congratulations to Tom Best on his 250th appearance for Canterbury this weekend. He remembers his first game being against Southend away (2009/10 season), only being called up early game day morning due to a fellow player having suffered an asthma attack. Not a lot of time to prepare, but he pulled on his boots and worked a good shift for us as ever.
Tom has many fond memories of playing with the team, beating Hartpury away (2012/13 season) by 1 point, and kicking a 35-yard penalty in the last 2 minutes when we were 28-0 down at halftime would have to be up there, but scoring the last try against Henley in the last few minutes to win the game to get us to the playoffs is definitely one of the fondest.
