Barns Green Face Unbeaten Shoreham RFC To Settle An Old Score

Barns Green take on the only team who have beaten them this season and they will be hungry for retribution.

The last time these teams faced off it was a preseason friendly in which Shoreham came away 14 - 38 winners. This was back in the September heat with little game experience for the men in Green and Gold against a team who had a few games under their belts. Since this pre-season friendly, both teams have gone on an impressive run of form.

Shoreham have started Sussex Premier 2 strongly opening with a comprehensive win against Worthing Azurians and then a 29-12 win over Steyning in round 2. Their confidence will be flying high and no doubt they will be expecting a win at the Field of Dreams.

Barns Green are fresh off the back of a 26-19 win against Worthing. Although they were comfortably winning the first half 26-0 their lack of game time showed in the second half allowing Worthing a comeback and nearly giving up the winning spoils. Having said that, their form in Sussex Two West cannot be ignored and they will equally be targeting a win against the table leaders.

Both teams have electric back lines and strong packs so it is going to be a fantastic contest with the winners marking their intent for the rest of the league. Currently there are three undefeated teams in Sussex Premier 2 but after this weekend, at least one will fall out of that prestigious group.

Kick off is at 2pm at the Field of Dreams, Barns Green.
