This coming weekend we are off to the open spaces of Surrey again to Esher's ground at Hersham where they moved to prior to WW2 where interestingly at the outbreak of the war, the clubs ground was turned over to food production for the nation and ploughed up.  After being re-sown the club were back at the same ground in the 1950's which has been increased in size to some twenty three acre site which has been bought in the last thirty years complete with a 1,200 seater stand and they claim to be the first club in London to have floodlights installed

Esher were placed into the London 1 league when leagues were introduced in 1987 and with a relgation or two they worked their way up to the Championship for the 2010-11 season where we met them on the field of play for the first time.

They are currently in 11th. position having won five of their fifteen games and have interestingly scored four or more tries on eight occasions compared to our ten.
