Sunday 15th October - Minis and Youth Rugby Update

10 months ago By Russell English

Lots of actions from the minis and youth players on Sunday.

Under 7s hosted the East Kent tournament this year. With a good turnout from local clubs to support the event.

Under 8s at the East Kent tournament in Folkestone met their target of every player scoring a try, in the final play of the festival - great team performance.

​​U​nder ​9s played at Sheppey in the ​East Kent​ ​tournament​, playing 4 games, winning 3​ against; Ashford, Medway, Sittingbourne and los​ingt​ ​1​ against Canterbury.

The whole squad ​are a real credit to the club. Star performance from ​Victoria Storrie who was a rock in defence; ​never miss​ing a tackle and was almost unstoppable in attack​.

Under 10s played at Ashford tournament, the team played amazingly well, winning 3 games against Dover Medway and Ashford but lost to Canterbury. A cracking effort from all of them.

Under 11s ​were at ​S​ittingbourne, ​losing games against ​​T​hanet, ​A​shford ​a​nd ​C​anterbury. ​Hector was man of the match, easily the best payer today. The only thing stopping him was when he broke his patella​ (​knee cap​)​ in the final game​.​

Under 13s and Under 14s had training at home. Under 14s are looking for new players, if you're interested please go to the club Sunday's at 10am.

Under 16s were missing their scrum-half Jay Jarman-Chantler and center Archie English for their match against Thanet. They played an extremely good game of rugby despite the missing players. The first try was scored by Samuel Rose within the first few minutes of the game and the second try was scored by Jack Morgan. No tries were converted. Unfortunately their recent winning streak has come to an end, losing 45-10. Man of the Match was Angus Dempster for playing out of position and taking on the role of scrum-half for the game. He played an excellent game of rugby and showed the true spirit of rugby.
