Great weekend for U11s - A team win Abbey U11 festival
Abbey Festival has a reputation for producing strong competition so the Ay’s knew it would be tough.
Abbey Festival has a reputation for producing strong competition so the Ay’s knew it would be tough. Against some very good opposition the Ay’s played great team rugby, with powerful running and good support play in attack, and fast line speed and strong tackling in defence. The combination was hard for the opposition to break down and resulted in the Ay’s line only being breached once all day.
Tries came from all departments and all areas of the field which was good to see. Kick-off returns, charge downs, driving mauls, quick penalties and good passing all getting results.
So by the end of the festival Ay’s had not lost a game and topped the table. Can we hope for more days like this?
This was also the first time this season the U11s have sent two competitive squads to different venues.
The academy team travelling to Amersham, playing with great pride and determination, the improvement they are showing being obvious to all present.
This weekend was all down to the great work all the players put in every Sunday and the willingness to work for each other.
Thanks To Abbey and Amersham for being such accommodating hosts.
