Gresham's U11 A Team v Norwich School U11 A Team

Result - Gresham's 3 - 4 Norwich School

In what turned out to be a nail biting thriller for the parents supporting from the touchline Norwich School came out on top by a single try despite a hard working and honest team performance by Gresham's.

Honours were even at half time and it was clear to see that both teams were playing for the win. A willingness to move the ball in attack before and during contact to achieve good attacking continuity was impressive as was the defence and commitment in contact by both sides.

Scores for Gresham's both came from wingers, Thomas W and Oli M (both finished superbly).

In the second half Norwich upped their physicality at the ruck and enjoyed a little more possession and coupled with their superb defence managed to score two tries to move into pole position.

Gresham's fought hard to get back into the game and were rewarded with a powerful try from Captain Jack Ha. making the score 4-3 in the visitors favour.

Gresham's pushed hard for the equalizer and crossed the try line or were tackled into touch just short on no less than four occasions before the end of the match but somehow the Norwich defence were able to weather the storm and see out the game as deserved winners.

Well done to the Gresham's boys today who gave their all for the team. It was the best performance of the term so far against the strongest opposition, Gresham's showed real character and played an exciting brand of rugby.

MOTM goes to Charlie C. who ran fantastic attacking lines and made some decisive tackles. Special mentions for Harry D, Michael S and Albie P who all performed brilliantly in the tighter areas of the game and to Jack Ha. who captained superbly and put in a strong all round performance.

Thank you once again to our growing band of parents for taking the time to come and support the boys, they very much appreciate it and enjoy playing in front of a crowd.
