There is a weekend break in the league calender but this doesn't stop the action at Cooke Fields. On Saturday 12th November Lichfield will play their fierce local rivals Burton RFC in the semi-final of the Staffordshire Cup (kick-off 2.15pm). Lichfield progressed from their quarter-final after beating Walsall RFC 51-7 whilst Burton RFC beat Stafford RUFC 14-5 in theirs.

     So with this in mind, if you are free this Saturday (12th November) to support, please come down to Cooke Fields as the 1st XV would be boosted greatly by a large home crowd as they look to book their place in the final of the Staffordshire Cup.

     If you would like to make an afternoon of it, the club are looking to encourage as many members and their families, plus non-members to come and join us for a pre-match meal at the cost of £10 per head, payable on the day for the food.

     You will enjoy a good three course meal, with choices to hopefully suit any palate. If you go home hungry then it will be personal choice, as there is always lots to eat if you want to!

     Please let Ian Bascombe know on 07973 192590 or ( in advance, if you would like to attend, so he knows the numbers to cater for.

     Timings for the pre-match meal are; arrival at 12.30pm, meal at 1.00pm and kick-off at 2.15pm.
