Kim Watson

Grizzlies Captain

2017-18 Season

The Grizzlies continue to go from strength to strength. Our best season ever was in 2015/16 when we won the League, Cup, Playoff finals, Promotion and the prestigious OA’s Team of the Year award. It was always going to be a tough ask to replicate those achievements, but last season ended up being a good one. We eventually finished 4th in a much tougher league, got to the semi-finals of the cup and gained promotion for the 2nd year running. We will be playing in HMMT 5 this year.

Commonly mistaken as the Vets Team at OA’s, the Grizzlies are made up of rugby players of all ages, our oldest playing member is 60 and our youngest is 17. Over the years we have fielded many father and son combos and we look forward to continuing this tradition as well as “blooding” in some Colts and welcoming some of the older members of the club who fancy a run out.

We love playing rugby but love the social aspects of being part of a rugby club as much. You’ll always find us after the match in the bar having a drink and a sing song. Team spirit and camaraderie is a big part of the Grizzlies and we welcome anyone who wants to play and be part of that.

This coming season will be another tough challenge but we look forward to resuming some rivalries with the likes of Bishops Stortford 5Xvs, Berkhamsted 1Xvs, Hertford 4Xvs, Fullerians 3XVs and Tabard 2Xvs
