Watton RFC's Red and Black Army signed a new recruit this week.

It has always been a struggle to get volunteers to help run the canteen whilst second team games are on.

But by working with the manager and staff from Kalmia and Mallow (Craegmoor) home positive results have happened. The home supports adults with a learning disability and are always looking for ways of getting involved in the local community.

During a residents' meeting when the matter was discussed Michael Fiddy was the first one to say: “I will do it”.

Club spokesman Tony Phillips stated: “Michael is now part of Watton Rugby Club. He really enjoys being involved, serving both home and away supporters, he always has a smile on his face, and we are very glad he wanted to help.

“This has been a positive outcome for Michael and he has grown in confidence since starting this project with the support from staff. The home is committed to encouraging people to have control and belief in their abilities, offering as little or as much staff support as they decide.”

Watton II 0, Diss III 43

The score did not really reflect the actual game, Watton seconds faced Diss current leaders of the division at home on Saturday, Watton have really progressed over the last few weeks, showing power in the scrum and pace and skill in the backs, However Diss clearly showed why they are current leaders, organised and powerful with the ball scoring in either corners, notching 43 points on the board until Watton Fly half Joe Norman received a nasty leg injury causing the game to be stopped at the 50th minute, Joe was taken to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital where he was treated and sent home. On a personal note we would like to thank Diss Rugby club for their support over this issue. Debuts for Watton this week -Chippy, James Humphries and Jack Warnes.
