Cellar Bar
 
The New "Cellar Bar" Opened On Sat v Reading 

 As an experiment to cope with the bar queues on big home match days the club opened a cellar bar on Sat just gone; that is serving a larger, a cider and a cask ale direct from the cellar door. 

Whilst early days it proved a great success with "those in the know" not queuing at all.....!

The club intends to do the same for the final home game of the season where we hope the whole club will come down to celebrate the last home game and the end of this very successful season.



LARGE SPACE AS REQUESTED BY HAPPY DOM SO THAT YOU ALL NOTICE PULLED PORK AT THE PITCHSIDE.





Pulled Pork - Pitchside Final Game of the Season! 

The club is delighted to announce as well as the excellent snack menu available from upstairs for the 22nd Apr there will be a stand pitch side selling fresh, homemade "pulled pork" with various salads. 

Again please do put this date in your diary - will be fun!

 
 
 
Maidenhead RFC are two points away from title after drab victory over Reading RFC
 
Maidenhead RFC 28, Reading RFC 5 

 Head coach Russell Bolton described Maidenhead's bonus point victory over Reading as 'the result they were looking for' despite producing 'the worst performance of the campaign'. 

The victory over their old adversaries, added to a defeat for second-placed Old Patesians, means Maids need two points from their final two matches to take the South West 1 East title. They could lose both and still get what they needed from bonus points. 

The match at Braywick started with a shock as Reading took a lead on two minutes when No.8 Charlie Davies charged over the line, making the most of a couple of missed tackles. 

Reading, already relegated before the match, rarely threatened after this, but their spoiling tactics and brave defence meant Maids were unable to pile on the points they have so often done on home soil this season. 

A first half characterised by poor passing and handling on both sides, but particularly Maids who dominated possession, ended 21-5 after tries from winger Scott Prince, centre Will Thompson and fulback Tom Finnie, the latter converting all the extras. The second half was a drab, stop-start affair dominated by the referee's whistle. 

The match rarely got out of first gear as Reading lived off scraps while Maids were at their profligate worst. 

They did, however, bag a fourth try which earned them a bonus point on 57 minutes when substitute Lewis Jones went over from close range having been on the pitch less than two minutes. 

Finnie added the conversion. The remainder of the match was of a poor standard which has rarely been seen at Maidenhead since the arrival of the 3G pitch. The highlight of the match was the 13 points scored by Finnie means he now has 304 points to his name this campaign with two matches remaining, breaking the old record for most points scored set by Max Arnold in 1976/77. 

Maids will win the title on Saturday if they beat Reading Abbey at Rose Hill, a result which could also relegate the hosts who were until two years ago coached by Russell Bolton.
