Newark U8’s can hold their heads high after a spirited performance in their league at Nottingham on Sunday the 20th of March 2011, despite not reaching the finals stage.
The team eventually finished 3rd in a very closely contested their league after games against Sleaford, Spalding, Derby, Moderns, and Tupton.
In typical Newark style we started slow against Sleaford losing 4- 6, who went on to win the league, but turned things around against Derby winning 5-1 in the second game. We then drew 2 games against Moderns and Spalding before finishing with a 4-2 win against Tupton. Unfortunately when the points were totalled up we just missed on progressing to the Finals, despite having scored the most tries in the league.
Tries on the day were scored by Oliver Brenchley (2), Josh Ashe (5) and Ewan (the gazelle) Lea (12)
Thank you to all of the team who played well and showed great commitment.
