Farnham U13As win the Premier division title

2 years ago By Steve Ratcliffe

If there is such a thing as a thrilling draw, the U13As played Effingham on Sunday 7th Feb and drew to win the Premier Division title

“The boys played out of their skins today” Sam Foskett, U13s Head Coach

The U13 As played like demons on the First's pitch at Wilkinson way on Sunday 7th Feb. This much anticipated top of the table clash with Effingham and Leatherhead U13As had it all.

A Draw was enough to secure the title yet the U13As went all out from the off to win, playing astonishingly good rugby against top opposition. The boys played the phases and controlled the game completely for the first 30 minutes with a great display, scoring two unconverted tries to be 10-0 up but the work rate delivered in the initial period couldn't be maintained for the full 50 minutes.

In the last 15 minute period, Effingham scored twice. The first unconverted try brought the score to 10-5 but the second, only minutes from full time, was almost under the posts and if the opposition fly half had slotted it, Farnham would have been second in the league.

The crowd felt for him when he sliced it but couldn't hide their delight in the fact that the Farnham boys had done enough to be League champions.

Winners are grinners and that was certainly the case for the U13s who've had a superb season so far this year.
