U11 Rugby v The Grove

U11 Rugby v The Grove

Wednesday 7th September


The U11 A squad was thrown straight in to action on only their second day back. It was a short trip to local neighbours,The Grove, in a game where the boys showed their potential. With slightly a different squad and a couple of new faces the boys showed a performance that has given me food for thought for future matches.

Their tackling and commitment was excellent and I was delighted how they moved the ball. Still one or two areas to work on but on this display the boys showed they are up for it and look like they are going to really come together over this hard and difficult term of rugby.

The next fixture away v Bedford Modern is going to be a tough one but I’m looking forward to seeing how much progress the boys have made since our last game against them when Bedford dominated.

A special mention has to go to Josh Davies and Caden Poulton who played their first match in this U11 squad. Both boys settled really well and looked as if they have been mates with the rest of the boys for ages.

Thanks to our fantastic parents. A great turn out for our first game and you know I really appreciate you all being there.

A great start on and off the pitch.

Won 65-5
