Under 9s - Match centre

Vectis Under 9s
Sun 26 Nov 10:00 - Friendly Full time

A rousing performance from the boys in blue (and red)

Well done under 9s.

Following an epic trip, 45 minutes warm-up/training and three epic matches with our good friends at Gosport & Fareham RFC the under 9s showed a much improved defensive effort with good control over the offside rule, good defensive alignments and improved tackling too - on top our usual scintillating attack running with Isaac H, Freddie H, George C, Coben AC, Nye S and Tyler E making great inroads into the opposition ball in hand while grabbing a good few tries each over the three full-length matches and in training beforehand.

During the course of the matches there were at least half a dozen contenders for the Golden Boot winner on Sunday - from golden running/tries to crunching tackles and the much-improved defensive line - but one player also stood out for his camaraderie in the matches by staying with and caring for a fallen opposition player not once but twice throughout the matches - until care arrived from the touchline. Well done our golden boot winner for this week, Regan N, and thanks for setting a great example as well as putting in a great effort in the tackling and gameplay department too. Congratulations Regan.

Next week: sees us back at HQ, Wootton not Twickenham, for the next training session and with what may well be our largest training session to date - with 22 active players now in the Under 9 squad. Well done everyone and thank you parents.

Weather warning: Don't forget your warm-weather gear, gumshields, layers and finger gloves if you have them. We will of course be doing a good warm-up to start with. See you on Sunday.
