Guisborough v DCRFC (15th April 2012)
DCRFC U8’s travel well and win against Guisborough

Guisborough (U7/U8) 85 V 225 DCRFC U8

Thank you to Guisborough for hosting a great away friendly on a very cold Sunday morning. It was a great squad turn out at the end of the Easter holidays with 20 players. This meant that DCRFC was able to play 2 teams with rolling substitutes. Guisborough had U7’s and U8’s playing as a strong U8 team and mixed U7 and U8 team which meant that all players got to play 4 games each (although the last Reds game was a very short match). DCRFC showed great character playing through the weather which hail-stoned on a number of separate occasions. The morning was rounded off with DCRFC playing DCRFC in a heavy hail storm before piling into the hut for chicken nuggets / pasta / sausage / bacon and chips!!! What a super way to end the morning.

The DCRFC Reds played well, all players getting stronger and demonstrating their increased ability and confidence catching, passing, running and tagging. Every player has made huge improvements throughout the season which can be observed in their style of play with increased flexibility and teamwork. Well done boys.

The Golds passed the ball throughout the team well, using all the players to their best potential and maximising positioning. All players played well and demonstrated their good hands, awareness, speed, agility and strength. Well done boys.
