Thrilling game at Canterbury Rugby Football Club

Our long-standing support of Canterbury RFC continued with our sponsorship of an exciting home win.

Coombs support of Canterbury RFC stretches back over 30 years and this year included the donation of a new porch for the club house. Our matchday sponsorship of Canterbury v Henley, at The Marine Travel Ground saw a stirring second half revival.

Canterbury came from behind to overturn a fourteen-point lead and secure the win against Henley. The exciting game was up for grabs until the last minute when Henley’s George Jackson lined up for a decisive conversion attempt.

Thankfully the woodwork came to the rescue as the kick bounced off a post, sealing the home win. Man of the Match was given to Tom Rogers, seen below being presented his award by Coombs’ Chairman, Stephen Ball.
