By a strange coincidence, Bognor RFC finished second in their league, one point behind the champions - just like the football team.

The Hampshire League division one runners-up now face a play-off against their Surrey League counterparts Old Freemens. It takes place at Hampshire Avenue in front of what should be a bumper crowd.

Read the full story of the 59-3 win over Chineham that clinched the play-off in the Bognor Observer. But in the meantime, here’s a gallery of Tommy McMillan’s photos from the game.
