Invitation To End Of Season Dinner Invitation To End Of Season Dinner

A disappointing start to a season which continued on the same level throughout.

A string of defeats, many of them heavy, Penryn 0-21, OPMs 3-6, Plympton 3-5 - Beer, Argaum’s veteran full back turned out for Plympton, Newton Abbot 9-41 (Baskeville drop goal Rowden try Beer conversion) HMS Erebus 0-9, Newlyn 0-8, Falmouth 3-21, Salcombe 0-9 and St Ives 5-41 redeemed by a very narrow 9-8 win over RAF Plymouth. This was followed by a 0-0 draw at North Tawton whilst a team of Cleverley, E Downing, Keen, Beer A, Blight, Paul, Westlake, Sloggett, Brooks, Perry, Rosden, Evans, P Hawkins, Lawson and S Martin recorded a 12-3 win over Okehampton.

Meanwhile the 2nd XV had kept going with a recorded win of 12-7 v Technical College but defeats 0-9 YMCA Reserves 3-5 Devonport High School and Albion Juniors 3-5 and 0-7. The New Year was equally disappointing 3-3 v Services A (Rowden try) 13-8 v Duke of Wellington Regiment II, a goal in the last minutes (tries Keen, Sparks and Blight, Beer 2 conversions) - but Salcombe 3-36 Plympton 3-8 and Bideford 3-6 (Beer drop goal) plus a win 6-3 over RNE College II (Blight try, Beer penalty goal). The 2nd XV recorded 3-3 v Albion Juniors 3-6 v Devonport High School O.B. 3-14 v Devonport High School and Salcombe Reserves 3-32 plus a number of unreported games.

April 30th, a record of an Argaum supper - believed to be the first - in the form of a memo card from the Mount Pleasant Hotel, the toast of the Club being proposed by the Hon. Treasurer of the Devon RFU, Leslie Paul responding to his father-in-law's toast!
