Result: Won 1. Lost 1. Drew 1
We travelled to Stamford for the first rugby games for two years for the U11 team. The first game was against Copthill School. It was very tight and we were unlucky to lose it 2-1. We then played Spratton Hall and won 4-2, with some very determined tackling and running. The final game against Brooke Priory was extremely close and ended up 3-3. I was delighted with the effort of the team. Aydin proved a very effective and speedy player and scored a number of impressive tries. The tackling was generally good, with Ted being particularly effective. Jenson, Wilf, Euan and Matthew also gave 100% throughout the matches and they all demonstrated a great team spirit that is very encouraging for the rest of the season.
