Please be at the South end of the beach by 6.45 for a 7pm sharp start, as we are limited to daylight hours only.

The Funnel Webs Resurrection

Published February 10, 2017

The Lindfield Golden Oldies team known as the “Funnel Webs” has again been invited into the 2017 Rugby GO Draw. This is for over 35’s, and is a fiercely fought, yet highly enjoyable competition.

The Funnel Webs did go into hibernation last year only through the lack of venom in its numbers….

However the nest is complete with a full set of the coveted Gold Spider jerseys & some cash in the accounts….. so a new generation is ready to emerge.

We invite a new generation to “Spin the ball”.
