DARTMOUTH Rugby Club enter 2012 eager to fulfil their pre-season vow of winning promotion.

The first item on the agenda at a players' meeting ahead of the campaign was 'would you like to win the league this season?' – and the answer was a resounding 'yes'.

The Riversiders currently lie third in Devon Two on 27 points below Ilfracombe, who are ahead of them in second on points scored, but Dartmouth have a game in hand.

Exeter University are marching clear at the top, but Dartmouth are confident of pipping their Cornish rivals to the second promotion place.

Dartmouth play their first league match for a month when they travel to Plympton Victoria tomorrow.

Plym Vic play at the St Boniface Arena, just below the Marsh Mills roundabout in Plymouth, which hosts speedway alongside the rugby field.

They're currently without a point in the league and lie bottom of the pile.

Dartmouth coach Steve Atkins has the luxury of taking his pick of an assortment of youth and experience in terms of his playing staff, after giving the lads a break over the Christmas period.

Dartmouth's last league outing was a 43-0 rout of Plymouth Argaum in early December – and they should inflict a similar beating on Plym Vic.

In recent years, Plym Vic have given a good account of themselves in the first 20 minutes, but fitness has been their demon.

If the Riversiders go down to the St Boniface Arena and perform as they should, they ought to come back with a bonus point in their back pocket as well.

The Riversiders' next home game is against Buckfastleigh a week tomorrow with a 2.30 kick-off.

Dartmouth have been well supported by various sponsors this season and would like to thank Mitch Tonks from the Seahorse and Rock Fish; Tim Hailstone from the Castle Tea Rooms; Pauline and Alan Hook from the Seale Arms; their past players; and Liz and Chris Moseley from the Crab and Bucket.

In other news at the club, they will be holding a Valentine's draw on February 11.

This has been organised by Jo Brooking from A and J Property Maintenance and the prizes include a helicopter ride from Dartmouth around the coast and back and a signed England rugby shirt by ex-captain and coach Martin Johnson.

After the prize draw, Matt Pink and his band Bounce will entertain revellers.
