Peterborough Rugby Club’s Under 10s won their fifth trophy of the season on Sunday (April 12) as they lifted the plate at the Holt Festival in Norfolk, beating Cheshunt in the final.
It was a fitting end to their first ‘tour’, which saw an exhausting day of quad biking, archery, laser warfare, fencing, abseiling and numerous other activities on the Friday afternoon and Saturday, with two very late nights.
“I’m sure that’s not what the England team will be doing on the days before their World Cup matches later this year, but it’s the sort of thing we do!” said head coach and tour organiser Simon Potter.
“Everyone had a whale of a time, but were absolutely shattered at the end of it. We’re a squad who are really serious about our rugby, but more serious about having fun as part of the great rugby experience. We’re looking for a few more players to join us for next season and would welcome anyone wanting to share the wonderful journey we’re on.”
Borough Under 10s run two sides - named Webb and Ellis after the inventor of the game. Webb won the plate at Holt to make it three trophies this season, while Ellis had also won two going into the weekend.
The squad hold their presentation night this Friday evening with one final chance for more silverware next Sunday (April 26) when Team Webb are at the St Neots Festival and Team Ellis are at the Stamford Festival.
