Doubling Up 04.04.14

The U13 XV completed a successful season by becoming County Champions when they defeated a spirited side from de Lisle Catholic Science College by 53 points to 12 at Loughborough Town Rugby Club on April 3rd.  This follows the Under 14s victory over Welland Park in their final last week.

Early exchanges were close, but by half time Loughborough had established a 24 points to 5 lead with some determined attacking moves and solid defence.   After the interval, with the opposition tiring a little, some very powerful running from the backs ensured that further tries were added and Loughborough took complete control.

At the end of the match, captain Finlay Calnan received Leicestershire RFU’s oldest, probably largest and certainly heaviest trophy:  it was first presented in 1920!
