Friendly: Ilford Wanderers 29 May & Baker 17
Ilford Wanderers enjoyed a 29-17 success over old foes May & Baker in a friendly under the floodlights on Friday night.
Wanderers’ customary forward power probably gave them the edge against a well organised and combative Bakers side.
Ollie Bird scored one of the hosts’ scores after taking a catch at the lineout, while Sam Eddy crossed from the back of a scrum and George Onjobe also dotted down.
Bakers scored two well deserved tries of their own, but it was Ilford who won the pre-season clash.
Earlier in the week, several club members head to Twickenham for the National Rugby Awards.
Ilford had been nominated in the ‘Club Development of the Year’ category for their work in creating a new gym at their Forest Road base.
The work has seen free weights, resistance cables, rowing and bike machines and cross-trainers installed, all thanks to the generosity of former player John Levy.
