Market Harborough RUFC has been promoted to Midland One division after a dramatic play-off win!
The rugby season came to a thrilling end last week with our local rugby club moving up a division. Market Harborough finished a stellar league campaign in third position, behind Oadby Wyggestonians and Luton, leaving them in a play-off position.
This meant there was one final hurdle standing between the team and promotion to Midland One division: a play-off game against Dronfield, with the victor climbing a division.
The sides met on 27th April after both finishing as runners-up in their respective divisions. The fiercely contested game ended with Market Harborough on top with a 25-21 win.
The team dug deep to overturn a large first-half deficit before battling back to claim an extra-time success despite a red card. This means that Market Harborough will be playing in Midlands One next season!
As sponsors of the team, Naylors Estate Agents is proud to be a small part of the success the club has seen.
Here’s hoping the team has every success in the higher division next season!
