Aylesbury RFC U11s vs Chinnor
What a start to our season!
What a day of rugby for the U11s!
Leading up to this fixture I think it is fair to say that we were slightly apprehensive due to previous seasons score lines against strong Chinnor teams.
However, there was also a sense of optimism.....the core of our squad has been together now for 4 or 5 seasons and has been showing signs of real progress; individual flair alongside a strong team bond, working together to create a determined, enthusiastic, hard working bunch of players
So.....with 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses we were hugely impressed with all their performances. This has been a great start to our season!
Most pleasing to see was 3 new starters, only having played rugby a couple of times, getting stuck in, being made to feel part of the team and all making some great contributions. From the new starters I witnessed some great tackling, some forward momentum with a pass out wide to the hands of a teammate, willingness to get involved with scrums, rucks and mauls.....very encouraging!
Well done to all, can't wait for the next fixture!
