Boys Rugby - Match Report - U11 A Team

Langley v Gresham's (a)

The penultimate match of the season took place away from home at old friendly rivals Langley Prep School.

It was to be a good day for Gresham's who were a little too strong on the day for a spirited Langley side.

The boy's willingness to keep ball alive and to run onto the ball from deeper positions helped them to attack more effectively in the wider channels and build a score early on.

First half trys from Joey P, Raphie K, Olaolu A and Stanley B were all the end result of alot of good attacking throughout the team.

The second half bought further scores from James C (2), Capt Robert S, Joey P and Man of the Match Raphie K who supported every attacking play superbly and seemed to everywhere all at once.

Strong carries from Noah C (including a newly devised penalty move) Robert S and James C were again positive features of Gresham's play and George VC weighed in with some timely distribution and some great pressure in defence. Stanley B and Joey P should also be commended for some wonderful evasive running in attack.

To their credit Langley hit back with two deserved trys of their own for a final scoreline of Langley 2 Gresham's 9

A huge thank you to Langley for their boys efforts, to Peter for officiating the match so well and for their sportsmanship and hospitality, it all made for an enjoyable rugby experience.

Thank you to our parents for their vocal support from the touchlines and for their positive comments to the boys throughout the match. Lastly thank you to the boys for their hard work, positivity and teamwork on the day, you are a super team of 100 percenters boys well done.

This Friday Gresham's play their final match of the season against Norwich School at home, Kick off 2.15pm.
