Rugby Union: Southwold v Basildon

It’s been quite a while since Southwold played, their friendly on November 26 being cancelled and the last match before that on November 19.

That was a 16-all draw against Stowmarket, their near neighbours in the table for a league which also includes geographical neighbours Lowestoft & Yarmouth.

Both Southwold and Basildon, who are seventh in the 12 team league, were unable to win last time out so will be looking to rectify that on Saturday.

The pair could have been closer in the league had Basildon, with 20 points to Southwold’s 27, not had a five point penalty deduction.

Venue: York Common, Southwold, IP18 6TB. Tickets: Free. Date: 2.15pm, December 10.

Greyhounds: Mildenhall Stadium

If you can’t wait to start your sporting weekend tomorrow then there are always the dogs at Mildenhall.

The greyhound racing starts at 7.30pm. There are 10 events to watch during the night at the stadium which also hosts stock and banger car racing as well as the Mildenhall Fen Tigers speedway team.

Venue: Mildenhall Stadium, Haylands Grove, West Row, Mildenhall, IP28 8QU. Tickets: Adult £5 (includes race card), OAP £4 (includes race card), under 16 free. Date: 7.30pm, December 9.
