The financial stability of Old E's seems to be under the spotlight again. A lot of players have left in recent weeks where the flow of money seems to have come to a complete standstill following the tragic death of their financial backer, Kobus Paulsen (RIP), at Christmas. Rumour mill has it that players match fees/expenses not been paid in months and their scholarship scheme at St Mary's University on the brink of collapse where their academy scholars have not had their tuition fees paid this academic year. 
Very sad for a club that was on the brink of Championship rugby last season.

I'm not so sure about sad, but how many times have we seen the results of clubs falling from a height due to the use of a single egg basket when being ambitious

It's sad for the majority of people involved with the club who just want to play for and support their local rugby team. Too many clubs living beyond their means. It catches up with them in the end.

Things can't be too bad at OE's. The full squad plus extras are already up in East Yorkshire and staying the night in a good Hotel a few miles from Brantingham Park.

Still looks a pretty good side, although the bench looks inexperienced............

Correction, looks like the playing squad is travelling up today.
Only the management came up yesterday. Nice.

Is the Full Back a loan player from Westcombe Park?

Excellent win for O.E's today, especially considering missing injured players and probably one of the youngest teams in the league.

I doubt that the OE's side was any younger than the opposition today.

Hey can anyone shed any light on Old Es at the moment, Im a long standing fan who moved away so am out of the loop at touch level unfortunately. Whats going on there, is it injuries or is it something else as the squad Im viewing, whilst a team for the future, seems to have been decimated overnight. Appreciate you may not want to covet rumour in your reply so if there is a way of private messaging Id be interested to hear it. 

Thanks in advance!

Bruce I suggest you search the Nat 1 archives on this site over the past several months to reveal the issues surrounding OE's plight Sad but reality hits home in these cash focused tines in r.u.

The early end of the season will mean the OEs home game against Blackheath, easily their biggest money spinner, will not take place.

Likewise.

In the absence of any proper derby game, PARFC have developed a charity fundraising "Men's Day Out" in conjunction with our local hospice. All pariticipants in a 12 km walk around town get free entry, a pint and a pasty. This year, coinciding with the visit of Richmond and scheduled for next Sat. And having beaten them away, we'd be fancying our chances... Unhappy

In all seriousness, following the 2m isolation rule?
