Pre-match report – Weavering vs Leigh

Leigh and Weavering are no strangers to each other. They are more like grassroots rugby cousins, both conceived in a local pub after several pints in 2003, built on enthusiasm and social values, both have also risen to the dizzy heights of the Rural Kent League hierarchy in their time. This season sees Weavering drop down from Premier 2, as Leigh move up from Dragon Fire West 4. Records available show they have met 6 times with Leigh taking advantage with 4 wins to Weavering’s 2.  Both have given each other a whipping ove the years but in recent seasons Weavering bolstered to two teams and took the last two encounters with style. Leigh are back on the up as last season’s Division 4 champions and momentum is high after 2 wins from 2. Weavering have had the opposite start with 2 defeats, one at home and one away. This round 3 Late Red Division 3 meeting at Weavering will be a tough one for both teams, Leigh keen to keep the winning run going, the hosts looking to break the curse of back to back defeats. 

Kick off is at 3pm at the The Pavilion ground.
