EX PLAYERS LUNCH 2016

ANNUAL BINGLEY PULLIN MEMORIAL LUNCH 2016

A good crowd of 57 ex players attended the Annual Bingley Pullin Memorial Lunch on 29th October. After enjoying a four course meal, they watched the Chiefs match against Devonport Services, in which they staged an exciting late comeback before losing by three points.

After the match several of the veterans gathered in the "old" bar for a traditional post match session and sing song.
