Teamwork is key @ Bognor RFC
Good to see two full squads with 28 players attending - great numbers again; thank you to all who could make it.
+ Welcome back to Deven Trotman, who makes a return back to the Chichester U11s squad.
Two pools, 3 & 4, with the opposition, playing order and results as follows:
POOL 3 - Horsham 2 (Lost 2-1), East Grinstead 2 (Lost 5-0), Midhurst 1 (Won 2-0), & Shoreham (Won 4 -1)
POOL 4 - Hove (Won 5-1), Midhurst 2 (Won 2-0), Horsham 3 (Won 4-2), Worthing (Won 5-1)
Coaching observations on the day; when the squads work together and play together they play some really strong rugby during the games (shown by the results), but, to repeat key messages for the all squad members which they are coached and fully aware - the players are the decision makers on the pitch not the coaches (with feedback from the squads confirming this), so when they apply these skills and attributes and ensure they are all working together as a Team they enjoy the rugby more and the results will come.
As always, if anyone parents wish to take up the reins of coaching, please let me know.
Congratulations to the recipients of the Player of the Festival Awards:
- Oliver Barden - for his eagerness in tackling the tallest U11 ever-seen(!) and his direct running
- Archie Coughtrey - for his high level work rate and unquestionable stubbornness to simply not stop
Whole squad training @ Oaklands Park on Sunday 26th November.
