It's over 10 years since Crosfields Masters played their first game of Masters Rugby League and their now traditional June weekend away this year took them down to South Wales to play Cardiff Blue Dragons Masters.
As ever, Crosfields Masters travelled in style on the Friday before the game, setting up camp in Porthcawl to enable them to have an evening of preparation in the local hostelries.
Crosfields Masters arrived at the picturesque Glamorgan Wanderers ground an hour before kick off ready to help spread Masters Rugby League in South Wales. With Cardiff short on numbers due to work commitments and holidays, the Crosfields lads, in the true Spirit of Masters, jumped in to help out their hosts.
An excellent game of Masters Rugby League followed on a maximum dimension pitch which made for open flowing rugby. Master of the day was awarded to Cardiff's gold shorter Alan Leech, playing o lyric his second game of Masters whilst Masters Moment went to Crosfields ‘ Kev Remond, for a full 50 minutes full of Moments in what his fellow Crosfields team mates described as “an unprecedented performance “.
Cardiff Blue Dragons Masters organiser, Chris Thomas, was full of praise for the Crosfields Masters. “After a well contested Masters game, there was a serious bout of drinks and merriment. Big thank to Paul Field for a fine performance as referee.”
Dave Reid, Crosfield Masters organiser was full of praise for the game and added “ We thoroughly enjoyed it"
After their evening in Cardiff, the Crosfield Masters made their way home on Sunday, with a refreshment stop in Stafford on their way back up the motorway.
The two teams will be back together as they both make their way to Eastmoor Wakefield for the Yorkshire Masters Festival on Saturday 13th June.
