Wisbech GS v Gresham's U11 A Team - Boys Rugby

Squad : Nick K, Tom W, Albie P (Capt), Michael S, Jack Ha, Harry D, Charles C, Olly M, Teddy B, Jack Ho.

A great start to the season for Gresham's U11 A Team who finished 7-6 ahead in a very tight fixture with Wisbech Grammar School. Both teams deserve huge credit having played very little rugby of late both for their enthusiasm and their sporting conduct which was a joy to see for all parents supporting from the touchline.

Captain Albie P, Jack Ha, and Harry D all carried the ball strongly with direct runs predominantly targeting the middle of the field and drawing extra defenders. Olly M, Tom W and Jack Ho. all benefitted in the wide channels showing off good evasive running skills and finishing prowess when called upon. Teddy B and Charlie C both carried the ball with confidence in attack and distributed the ball well into the wider areas of the pitch and Michael S was the king of the breakdown hitting and setting more rucks than any other player in black and white.

MOTM on the day is awarded to Nick K who was an ever present attacking threat and was outstanding in a defensive role that saw him popping up all over the pitch throughout both halves with a work rate that Neil Back (U11 boys you will have to look him up) would be proud of.

Special mentions for Albie P for his outstanding Captain's performance both on and off the field. Tom W for his fabulous hat-trick of trys out wide and to Olly M for his very impressive brace. I'd also like to mention Jack Ho. for his super corner flag tackle late in the game to deny an opposition player a score that would have forced the draw (it was that close).

Thank you to the boys who showed such wonderful teamwork, character and clearly enjoyed the match and the superb hosting of Wisbech Grammar School who we will look forward to playing at home next season. Thank you also to parents from both sides who came to cheer on the boys and enjoy an afternoon of rugby (for the first time in a little while).
