We travel to @Cottesmoreafc on Saturday for our next League match.
They're just a couple places behind us, so we'll be taking the game seriously looking for those points.

Any support is appreciated

Rugby Borough FC have won the league championship in our first season as a senior club.

We formed last year, with the aim of providing players from Rugby Town Junior FC, The Strachan Football Foundation and local junior clubs, with a place to continue playing football after they reach 18.

The club are based at the home of Rugby Town Juniors, Kilsby lane, and we are fortunate enough to have a 3g pitch as our permanent home ground.

Saturday saw second placed FC GNG visit Kilsby Lane for the first time.
15 minutes in and Borough were already on top, Brandon Oddy making a curling effort just over the bar from outside the box.
Jamie Paye then volleyed straight at the keeper from a curling cross.
GNG were reduced to 10 men in the 44th minute when their right back pulled back Jamie Paye as he tried to latch on to a through ball.
Borough punished GNG from the resulting free kick, with Josh Turton scoring after the keeper had already saved Ollie Chater’s ball.
Half Time 1-0.
Borough started the second half well, creating several more chance on goal; Tom Glasscoe and Ollie Chater both getting close to extending Borough’s lead.

Kane Finney then shot from 35 yards, which the visiting keeper just managed to tip over the bar.
GNG conceded an own goal after a scramble in the goal mouth at the 75th minute.
Borough wrapped the game up in the 83rd minute with Chater scoring a superb goal from a Paye pass.

Full Time 3-0.
