TITLE-CHASING Chard play their final home game of the season on Saturday when North Bristol are the visitors in a 3pm kick-off.

It is a massive game for the club in its quest for title honours in the Western Counties North.

Club officials are hoping for another bumper crowd for the game which is crucial to Chard.

If Chard can beat North Bristol and then win at Gordon League a week later, then promotion will be guaranteed for a second successive season for coach Steve Broome’s side.

A club spokesman said: “It would be great if we can have a big crowd at the club on Saturday to cheer on the lads. It is a huge game for us.”

Chard’s 2nd XV also have a big match away against Taunton 3rds on Saturday — kick-off at 3pm.

Following the success of the club’s recent race night which raised a great sum of money for Cancer Research, the club will be holding a Sportsman’s Dinner on Friday, April 27, in aid of Multiple Sclerosis research.

The event is being organised by the Former Players Association but is open to all interested people.

The guest speaker will be former England rugby player, Gloucestershire cricketer, and BBC rugby commentator Alistair Hignell who suffers from MS.

Tickets cost £25 and dress code is collar and tie.
