October’s penultimate edition of ‘Club Watch’ is here and as we head into November, expect some fireworks on and off the pitch. Let’s find out what some of our National Leagues clubs have got coming up…
Bishop’s Stortford RFC
Bishop’s Stortford will be hosting their fireworks night on Saturday 3rd November. With a family ticket costing £18, adult and unaccompanied child tickets at £8 and accompanied children costing £5, it seems like this fireworks night will be worth the money.

Doors for the event will open at 5pm and the display will start at 7pm. There will also be a fun fair, BBQ, bar and live music.
Darlington Mowden Park
Darlington Mowden Park have ramped up the promotion of their own fireworks night on Sunday 4th November. After a very successful event in 2017, that attracted 3500 people to the Northern Echo Arena, this year the capacity has been raised.
As well as a fireworks show, there will be live music, the headline act being America’s Got Talent finalist Courtney Hadwin. With tickets costing between £4-£7, it certainly seems like this will be a really enjoyable evening with some quality entertainment.
Rosslyn Park will be the venue of the UK Armed Forces Women vs South Africa Women on Friday 2nd November. In what is likely to be a high quality game, admission is free, although it is suggested that attendees donate £5 per person with all proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
On 2nd November the UK Armed Forces Women take on South Africa at Rosslyn Park in London. We want the venue to be full of rugby fans cheering on both sides! 🇬🇧 🏉 🇿🇦@PoppyLegion @RNRugby @armyrugbyunion @RAFRU_Women @RAFRugbyUnion @NAVYfit @ArmySportASCB pic.twitter.com/fTmJ2DlmGt
