Evening All,
CANCELLED | Beccahamian 2’s | 14th Nov
Unfortunately for the 1st time this season we couldn’t get numbers in time, thank you to all those that made themselves available, especially those who tried to re-arrange stuff to make the cut, but unfortunately by today at 11:00, we still didn’t have a team, so as advised we had to cancel, however…I understand from Shawsey that the majority of you have been selected to make up the numbers for the 3’s.  Well done.  KO at 1pm, if fancy supporting.  Or why not make use of the membership and watch the 1st’s.
Christmas Curry
The shops are all full of glitter and their is Christmas music in the air. So as a club that drinks, plays and stays together we are looking to celebrate Christmas together, traditionally we visit a curry house (???) and then sink a few drinks afterwards (more like it!!).
So let me know if you are coming along and bringing your prettier half.
I have booked The Yak and Yeti (

Yak and Yeti Restaurant, the best Indian Restaurant and takeaway in Eltham near Blackheath, Lewisham and Greenwich. We serve authentic Indian cuisine along with …

It’s in Eltham a short walk from Well Hall Club  date is 19th December for 6:30pm

To help John with numbers, can you please indicate your interest (or not) by emailing him on
Bandits Blackheath Stash
Looking to finalise numbers ideally this weekend, so get you Christmas orders in.  Looking at getting polo tops and/or hoodies.  If you’re interested can you let me know what you’d like and size.  I’ll co-ordinate requirements and then let Tim know, who can approach the supplier for a unit price.
Invitation Match | Drybrook RFC veterans | 2nd Jan 2016
Still too few replies to make a commitment to this, please let me know asap.
Drybrook RFC veterans were one of the teams that played in the Malta tournament and I suspect some of you shared a few beers with.  They’ve invited us over for a friendly game on 2nd Jan. They’ve chosen this date as our 1st XV are playing away at Cinderford, only 3 miles away.  We’ve spoken to the powers that be and they have agreed that we can share the 1st team coach to travel to the game.  Ideally, we’re looking for an early KO with Drybrook, so that we can then watch some of the 1st XV game, but this depends on the 1st team’s itinerary.  All the logistics still need to be sorted, but before we go to that length, is anyone interested in honouring the challenge?
Training | Wednesdays, 7:15 pm | Well Hall
Training with 3’s is going well, Richard is doing a great job, but would be even better with more numbers, so please make an effort.
Club Membership
The numbers continue to grow, but we still need more.  If you haven’t paid-up yet, details available at, and if you’re a regular seasoned Bandit expect your own personal invitation from yours truly.
Please note the additional £70 covers all match fees, so the sooner you pay your membership, not only will you get some great benefits (like 10% off the bar at Well Hall), you’ll also be saving money over the season. This means out of fairness to those that have paid their memberships (and therefore their season’s match fees), after a game I will be collecting £1 from Members (to go towards opposition jug) and £10 (yes TEN pounds) from non-members (a student/unemployed discount will be applied); this will cover the match day fees and a contribution towards the infrastructure that allows us to enjoy everything that is rugby.
If you can’t afford the one-off hit, there are payment plans available. If you still can’t afford it, please talk to me.
Hopefully see you on a pitch or in a bar soon 🙂
