Young Mids U12 record their first win
After hosting their first round draw against Esher in the U12 Surrey Waterfall Cup at Lime Meadow Avenue, our U12 boys scored a win in their first match!
Lime Meadow Avenue played host to the first round draw against Esher in the U12 Surrey Waterfall Cup on Sunday. Our visitors, Esher were treated to our Mids weather microcosm of strong cross-winds on the half-size pitch in front of the clubhouse.
As this was the boys first ever match, it took the team a surprisingly short amount of time to settle into their rhythm, but by half time they were up 4 tries to 2. Excellent defensive work from Joshua, Dylan, Dan and Ashley held Esher at bay for most of the half.
The second half saw Esher push back, and score a couple of tries in quick succession, which were luckily answered by two tries from Orlando, and one try from Joseph,with great defensive work from Gregor and Finlay, leaving the final score at 35-20.
The Young Mids face Reigate RFC in the Quarter Finals of the Surrey Cup on Sunday 10th February, venue tbc.
The Young Mids U12 are always looking for new and returning players, catering for all abilities, from beginners upwards.
If you, or anyone you know wants to give rugby a try, then come along to a taster session. We train on Sundays 1030-12pm.
Team: Gregor, Ashley, Joseph, Dan, Joshua, Finlay, Orlando and Dylan
