Round 7 of South West One East. Next up Chippenham at home.
Last Fixtures against Chippenham were 10 years ago in 2007-08 in what was then South West 2E (level 6)
19 April 2008 Marlow 17 – 22 Chippenham
24 November 2007 Chippenham 77 – 11 Marlow
Chippenham came to Marlow for the last match of the season as Champions already. At that time it was 2 league points for a win and 1 for a draw and no bonus points. Marlow was before the game third from bottom, behind Henley Wanderers on points difference.
It was a very close and exciting game. Marlow took the lead by 2 points just before the end of the game, but knocked on Chippenham’s restart in its own 22. Chippenham retained possession at the scrum and scored a try with the last move of the game. A desperate outcome given that Marlow had won 5 of its previous 6 games after a dreadful series of results earlier in the season.
