Sulians, Stotherts and Walcot in the hunt for Team of the Month award
TEAM OF THE MONTH Our local rugby teams have endured a stop-start December and January due to both wet and cold weather and the two-week festive break.
Three of them have made progress in their respective divisions, however, picking up three wins apiece to earn their places on the shortlist for the latest Bath Chronicle/Greensward Sports Consultancy Team of the Month award.
Combe Down, Stothert & Pitt and Colerne have already won the prize – a case of beer and some signed Bath Rugby merchandise, courtesy of Wadworth and Greensward Sports – this season.

OLD SULIANS Pulled themselves into the middle of the Somerset 1 table with three good wins over the Christmas period – a good return for a side that tends to favour harder, faster pitches. The only blot on their record was a heavy defeat to Bristol Barbarians.
STOTHERT AND PITT The October winners suffered just one reverse – at the hands of runaway Somerset Premier leaders Chew Valley – and picked up three wins, including an impressive 41-23 victory over second-placed Midsomer Norton.
WALCOT The Lansdown club have had an upturn in fortunes after finding the going tough in Southern Counties South this season. A side full of youngsters is beginning to find its feet and wins over Dorchester, Supermarine and Oakmeadians eased their relegation worries.
Every team that takes the monthly accolade during the 2012-13 season will be eligible for our new Team of the Year award. A superb prize package includes a Wadworth Brewery tour for the entire team, with beer to take home, an end-of- season pitch renovation package worth more than £1,000, courtesy of Greensward, and an executive box at one of Bath Rugby's pre-season friendlies.
To be in with a chance of winning the monthly prize, junior and senior clubs should submit match reports to email@example.com by close of play on a Monday.
