Firstly, commiserations to the U14 squad who after a successful season came up against a quality Timperley side who Won the Centurion Cup 12-6. Sheffield U14s were always behind but remained close to their rivals until Midi and Face Off specialist Oliver Beaumont sustained a shoulder injury which put him out of action early in the third quarter and Timperley accelerated to win by a good margin. All team members should be proud of themselves for being one of the top two teams in the country!
The U16s fought for a fine victory against WACs Mersey Guild to win the U16 Plate competition 6-5 in very wet conditions. All players, parents and coaches were ecstatic to win in such a close match. After going 3-0 up in the first half, Sheffield went behind 4-5 in the third quarter but had self belief and determination to finish as the eventual winners.
