Autumn Arrives

This morning saw the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s head out into probably our coldest morning of the year so far. a light frost overnight and the shelter from the trees made the pitch feel really cold for our last training session before our trip to Headingley next week.

We started with our time trials, which are designed to get the boys wanting to be at their sharpest for the team and introduce a bit of 'friendly' rivalry in the team.

This morning was fantastic with every body giving their all with some great results.

The whole team worked really hard on a really fresh morning, and I am looking forwards to seeing what they can produce at Headingley next weekend - good luck boys !!

Is it a bird ????

the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s are really lucky to have a great bunch of parents who follow them all over the county to watch them play and shout on their support. Sunday is never Sunday without the rumble of a Northern Irish accent from Brian shouting for Conor and the boys.

Nothing is ever too much trouble for Brian, and he faithfully rode and drove his way round the half marathon course recently to support Jo on her fundraising epic.

Not satisfied with his contribution to that cause, when asked recently to support some friends on a sponsored abseil, Brian went one further and launched himself from the top of the stand at Doncaster race course to help raise money - well done Brian, we are all very proud of you !!

A Special Day Out

In a couple of weeks, the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s will get a chance to play at half time during the Aviva Premiership game between Leeds Carnegie and London Wasps. As part of the build up, Leeds Carnegie asked BJ if he would like to be mascot for their Amlin Auropean Challenge cup game at home to Stade Francais, and siad he could take a couple of his mates for a look round.

BJ and the 2 Ols spent some time pitch side before getting the chance to rummage around the home teams dressing room and try on a couple of the players shirts. They then helped themselves to a bottle of Gatorade before heading into the tunnel to watch the build up. As SKY tv gave the go ahead, BJ was grinning from ear to ear and shaking like a leaf. Marcus Wentzel entered the tunnel and took BJ down the steps of his favourite ground and onto the Headingley pitch, and before he knew it, it was over and he headed back up the stairs.

Thanks to everyone at Headingley for a great day, the boys thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and cant wait to come back and play in a couple of weeks.

A great day for the new boys !

Sunday saw the first opportunity for the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s to field 2 teams on one day, meaning everyone was going to get a couple of games under their belts. This was a great opportunity for those who hadnt played yet, or not got much rugby under their belts to combine with some of the more experienced players and play rugby. And what a day, the blue team drew against a plucky Chesterfield, thanks to a long range try from BJ and some great tackling from Corey, Thomas and the Twins. They then went down to a competitive Selby team who set out with one intention and got their wish. It wasnt for a lack of effort from anyone in Blue, it just wasnt to be their day !

The Red team had a different challenge, they were to play back to back games against a fresh Selby team, made up of a similar mix of players, and they set about showing the blue team what rugby was all about. A great effort from Ryan in his first ever game, brought him a try, and new Scrum half Oliver drove his troops forward to earn a great draw in game one.

Game two was going the same way, lots of hard work and running before it looked like Selby were going to break free. A last ditch tackle from player of the day helped ensure a second draw - a great days rugby !

The important thing out of today was seeing everyone get a chance to play, and some of the smiles told their own story.

Back to training next week for the boys, before a trip to Headingley to play at half time in the Aviva Premiership game against London Wasps.

So Near Yet So Far

This week saw the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s, make the short trip down the M62 to Hull Ionians. Its always a tough place to go, they seem to breed giants in Humberside and the bright Sunday morning sunshine made them look even bigger !!

Nothing seemed to phase the boys today though, and they played some of the best rugby we have seen - creating solid platforms at the break down, and despite getting limited ball from the set piece - the ginats were proving hard to shift, what we did get, we moved well and the wingers saw plenty of chances to run. Despite spending most of the 2 games camped in the opposition half, we fell for the sucker pucnh a couple of times and Ionians scored on the break to take control and win the day.

We are really proud of what we acheived today, and there wont be many times we play that well and end up on the wrong end of the result. Well done everyone, especially Ben and Joe our players of the day.

Couplands Cravan Sales - A family run business

Onedrywash would like to thank all at Couplands Caravans of Louth for inviting us to demonstrate our range of products with the recently, with special thanks to Ray - the accessories manager.

Couplands are a dedicated, family run business supplying new and pre-owned caravans and motorhomes.
The companys was started back in 1975 by Peter Coupland, who began hiring out the family tourer to firends. This proved so popular he bought another van and kept building on the idea until he had 10 vans.
By this time Peter realised he needed space, and aquired a small peice of land on Louths industrial estate with a small office and workshop space for just one caravan. From this grew the business you see today.

"At Couplands Caravans we have over 30 years of knowledge and experience in the world of touring caravan sales.
Accessories and Awnings for your Caravan and Motorhome
Our shop offers an ever increasing variety of accessories designed to accommodate the needs of both the novice and the more adventurous caravanner. We sell absolute necessities as well as sheer luxuries, all at competitive prices, as well as an extensive range of awnings for every size of van. "

Show Time

Onedrywash would like to thank all at Salop Leisure for inviting us once again to their model review for next year. The annual show previewed the 2011 model range and invites were sent to all their valued customers.

Onedrywash will be on hand to demonstrate Caravan, motorhome and car cleaning kits and this year will be showing their new hibernation kit.

The show is ornganised by Salop Leisure - Emstrey, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, SY5 6DS - find them on google.

Severnside Lions Scooter Club in name has been around since 1970’s and even with the typical playing round with possible name changes that clubs seemed to toy with in the 80's our name was the one the traditionalists within Shrewsbury still stuck with. But sadly with so many clubs it was folded for the usual reasons. But like all good things Severnside Lions Scooter Club was resurrected in 1999 by a group of Scooterists that wanted to put Shrewsbury back on the scootering map. A few of the original members thrown in with some new blood gave us the club we have today. We are the typical fun loving bunch of people from all walks of life and parts of the scooter scene who enjoy what we all love Rallies, Music and of course BEER!! Some might say you have to have a sense of humour and a very thick skin to be a part of our club, but we aren't all that bad really. We meet on the last Thursday of each month at the Red Barn pub on Longden Road in Shrewsbury. We are always looking for new members who wish to be a part of club, but even if you are a member of another club but are in the area everyone is welcome to pop along for a chat and a pint or two!!

Success All Round

This weekend saw the first games for the Onedrywash sponsored Doncaster Knights under 10s, and what a start - 2 good wins and a draw which with a bit more luck could have been a win too.

The boys headed to Driffield and played against teams from Driffield, Pocklington and a mixed opposition, and despite the pouring rain, they stuck to their task and played some great rugby. There were try scorers throughout the team, and some great defensive efforts, and most importantly some great support from the parents.

Special mention to vice captain Conor who had the task of captaining the side for part of one game, and really rose to the challenge, to James, Liam, Lewi and Frazer who worked tirelessly in the forwards to give Owain and BJ plenty of ball to work the back with, and to Thomas who ran all day for the cause.

At the same time as the team was playing, Team Jo was running her first half marathon to raise money for the team - Brian followed round the course on his bike to keep Jo motivated, and Andrea, Lauren and Harriet shouted on from the sidelines. Despite the awful conditions, Jo finished in just over 2 hours raising over £300 for the team - well done and thanks Jo !!

Before and after the race !!
