We are proud to announce that we have recently started sponsoring a fantastic Women’s Rugby Team from Weston-Super-Mare called the (Under 15’s) Weston Hornettes Girls. These young women have had a great streak of games, including many wins, with their latest match ending in a win of 82-0!
History of Hornets RFC
It all began in 1962 with a buzz around Weston of another Rugby club in the town, soon the idea became fact. An inaugural meeting was attended by over 30 people at the London Hotel in the May of that year. There, to greet and to help arrange fixtures was Mr Percy Dimery, who was for many years the secretary of Weston RFC.
The club has always played at Hutton Moor and the pitches were on the former Henley’s sports ground, however there was a lack of facilities. Players used to change at Worle school and use the Golden Lion pub. After some year’s showers were put in the skittle alley at the pub but it was some distance from the changing rooms to the pitch! A total of 33 playing members were registered, most of them between the ages of 18 & 21 and many of them were former members of the Weston club.
The success of Weston Hornettes Girls
From these humble beginnings the club has been growing exponentially, even competing in cup matches. Recent matches have included such wins as:
• Hornettes 17-0 Hove
• Hornettes 53-15 Kingswood
• Hornettes 50-5 Avonmouth
• Hornettes 82-0 Devonport
With monthly prizes, a hard work ethic and consistent wins, the club is the perfect place for Equiptest to place their first sponsorship deal and begin the process of spreading our brand into different directions.
