New Siam Cup date agreed


A new date has been fixed for the Centenary Siam Cup after previous fixtures had to be re-arranged due to covid restrictions.

The Jersey Reds and Guernsey Raiders were meant to have met during May 2020, May 2021, and August 2021, but these all had to be postponed.

There will be three fixtures on the 6 November: both the men’s and women’s Siam Cups, and the veteran’s Nash Cup.

"By the time we play this fixture, it will have been two-and-a-half years between Siam matches, and it is incredibly exciting that we can now be in a position to play this match in November,” said the Chair of Guernsey Raiders, Andrea Harris.

Guernsey will be hosting the event and the news has been welcomed by the Chair of Jersey Reds Amateur Rugby.

"We're really pleased to have identified a date that works for both clubs and put the logistics in place for three teams to make the trip over to Guernsey,” said Cliff Chipperfield.

“There's been a real hole in the rugby calendar for both Island sides since we were last able to play Siam matches in May 2019, and it's fantastic to have been able to rearrange some of our league commitments so that we can renew this old rivalry."
