Under 8s Fun in the Sun

11 months ago By Colin Hiom

Under 8s put a great winning streak together while having fun in the sun at the Hampshire County Festival on Sunday (Mother's Day)!

What a day; clocks changing, mothers day, picnics, chocolates for the mums, prosecco, stick warfare, fizzy drink, turnovers, cheeseburgers, some amazing tries and even video refereeing!

The under 8s had a terrific tournament putting a four-match winning streak together after losing the first two games as they adjusted to the speed and rhythm of a fast-paced tournament. Once in motion there was no stopping the boys and beating the festival hosts Petersfield in the last match/round was a particularly vivid and rewarding highlight and showed how much the boys learnt about each other and the tournament in the first two matches.

Actual results as follows:

Farnborough v Vectis 4-3
Fareham v Vectis 7-2
Vectis v USP 5 - 4
Eastleigh 3 Vectis 6
Vectis v Tottonians 6 -4
Petersfield v Vectis 3-4

Special thanks to all the mums (and dads) for coming and bringing such cheer with them and all the players for putting in a such a great performance over the day. Roll-on Crowborough next weekend.
