Latest News & Match Reports
Raiders narrowly beat Bury St Edmunds at Roundstone Lane in another proverbial game of two halves.
Raiders made a blistering start coming close to scoring straight twice in the opening two minutes before Bury St Edmunds recovered to score the first points of the match in the 9th minute when the ball was picked up from a scrum and swiftly passed along the backs to full back Christopher Lord who sprinted over unopposed from thirty metres out. Scott Lyle successfully converted.
Raiders’ first points came three minutes later from the boot of Matt McLean.
There then followed a twenty minute period where both sides launched attacks but neither looked like breaching each other’s try line although Bury St Edmunds looked the most threatening.

Bury St Edmunds RFC, promoted into the league this season, pay their first visit to Roundstone Lane for a league fixture. Raiders headed to East Anglia in October for the ‘away leg’ and returned to the South Coast pointless (25-11).
History & Background stuff
The club was founded in 1925 as Bury & West Suffolk RFC. Post war players used to gather and practice at Culford School. By 1963 the Club regularly fielded 4 teams from its new home, at the ‘Haberden’, with 3 pitches and a small clubhouse.
During the 1970s the Club rebuilt its playing facilities and raised funds to build a larger clubhouse, further extended in the late 1980s. In 2006, with the aid of a grant from the R.F.U. the Club added a state-of-the-art ‘All Weather Pitch’ to the facilities. Youth and Mini rugby was also introduced.
