It's the biggest game of your life in front of a big crowd at a historic rugby venue, when a treasured memento is your name in the match programme. So you can imagine Matt McNally's disappointment when he arrived at Iffley Road to play in the David Charles Oxfordshire Cup final against Chinnor on Sunday.

Matt McNally There, on the centre pages of the programme, was the Banbury No 4 Michael McWally!

"I could have died,' said McNally. "But it was a memorable day , and I'll probably keep the programme anyway."

The 25-year-old lock forward, who joined Banbury as a 16-year-old, had another souvenir to take away with him, namely the Ron Grimshaw Memorial Trophy.

This award, in memory of the legendary former Oxford Mail rugby reporter, is presented to the man-of-the match.

Unusually, this was not given to a player from the winning side, as Chinnor edged home 17-13 in a close contest.

McNally's contribution to both Banbury tries, one of which he scored, and his whole-hearted commitment to Banbury's forward effort, did much to make the contest much closer than seemed likely.

The match also marked the end of Banbury coach Martin Hobley's distinguished playing career. Starting at Witney, he was a stalwart of many years of London Harlequins, before returning to his roots with Oxford and then Banbury.

Hobley, who came onto the field for the last ten minutes, has decided to hang up his boots at the age of 42.

Afterwards, there was an emotional ceremony in the dressing room.
