AS there were no scheduled matches last weekend for Chard Rugby Club, the squad took a week to rest and recuperate ahead of the season run in.

Games will start again on Saturday, March 2 when the 1st xv entertain Teignmouth kicking off at 2.30pm.

In the context of the season this is a massive game for Chard against a good mid table side.

Chard won the away game by a single point at Teignmouth so an exciting game is in prospect.

The club has confirmed some exciting news regarding a past captain from 1973.

"Former Chard captain Richard Gard who led the team 50 years ago in the 1973/4 season has contacted the club to say that he will be at the game," the club said.

"Lets get a big crowd at the club to help the players get a vital win."
