U7's v Claverdon

Subject: Old Yardleians U7s Match report Vs Claverdon


U7s: P4 W2 L1 D1

Team: Wills, Sophie, Charlotte, Amy, Bayley, Jake & Matthew


A fantastic start to the season by the U7s, despite the atrocious weather. 


We played a well organized Claverdon team who had several more players to call upon than we did,  nevertheless we got off to a winning start.   During the first game we saw some great running rugby from Wills who scored 3 great tries, easily outpacing the opposition. There was also some excellent support work from both Charlotte and Amy who managed to stay close to the ball carrier to receive try scoring passes.  Fantastic work!

During the second and third matches Claverdon were able to rotate fresh legs onto the pitch so we struggled to win the next two matches, drawing one and losing the other despite some great defensive tagging from both Matthew and Jake.

However, the team rallied well for the last match and after some inspired substitutions from the U7’s coaches, the introduction of fresh legs in the form of Bayley and Sophie provided an injection of pace that stunned Claverdon and secured us a well deserved victory.  Great work!


We were really pleased with the team’s enthusiasm  and their keenness to play, & especially pleased with how Charlotte and Matthew quickly settled into their first completive matches.   We are really proud of them all.


We are now looking forward to our next match, and in particular having Flynn back in the team,  which will really add an even greater cutting edge to our attack.


Well done Yards!


Your coaches Rob and Pete.
