Pre-match report for New Ash Green XV v Leigh XV

Frosty conditions for a heated encounter
Leigh v NAG 2s at the FOD

Leigh lads kick off their 2017/18 season tomorrow (Saturday 2nd September) with a pre-season friendly against a New Ash Green XV at the Pavilion ground. Who can forget that John Sewell conversion, the last kick of the game in the frosty conditions at the FOD in January to snatch a 31-29 win in what was a league table topping clash between the two teams. The week after for the return fixture at the Pavilion, a different looking NAG 2s wiped the floor clean with the Layabouts, with a convincing 42-0 victory after a slender 9-0 lead at the turn.  This season NAG 2s have elected to play in the sibling Kent Metropolitan League, so regardless of the game’s monicker of pre-season friendly, this really is the decider from last year as the teams will not meet in the league.

Kick Off: 3pm

Leigh meet up time: 1.45pm at New Ash Green (30 mins from Leigh)


Location: New Ash Green Sports Pavilion, Punchcroft, New Ash Green, Kent, DA3 8HS
