With 5 points for an AWO (away walk over) in their last scheduled league game of the season against Haywards Heath, Gravesend moved to a clear top of the league position and return to National 3 next season.
On Sunday 27th April, G's meet Blackheath in the final of the Kent Cup - seeking the ''Double'' and the real icing on the cake for their successful 2013/14 season.
It is with much regret and great sadness that I have to advise you of the death of Audrey Finch.
Audrey passed away on Wednesday evening and our sympathies and condolences are with her daughters, Linda and Corinne and the rest of her family. Audrey and her husband Bob were the stewards of the old IPM Sports Club when we took over and it was their invaluable help,expertise and friendship towards us that got us through the "probationary "period of running such a business to it's current success.
We shall miss you Audrey. R.I.P.

On Sunday 4th May 2014 we have the annual Mini & Youth Family Fun Day . This year promises to be better than ever with lots of activities including bouncy slides, fly wall, target golf (possibly even a visit from the army !!). Alongside this there is a vast array of competitions which could see you win the Wheelbarrow full of booze or even a raffle prize that has been signed by current or past internationals.
We have this year been lucky enough to secure some fantastic auction which are truly unique prizes (more on how you can bid ahead of the day). These include: • A framed British Lions shirt signed by Man of the Series, Leigh Halfpenny (a must for all Welshmen !!) • An official Rugby World Cup Final programme from the one and only time England have won it (2003). This programme has been signed by the England Captain on the day Martin Johnson and Richard Hill. • A signed Harlequins shirts. Comes complete with gift box.
So with this on offer get yourself down to the Club on 4th May and no matter your age, Mini, Youth, Senior or very Senior (Moles!!) there will be plenty on offer.
