Sidmouths newest batch of young players

Sidmouths newest batch of young players have had a fantastic start to the 2011 season, with a number of wins under their belts, the Under 7’s squad has the foundations of a strong, well disciplined youth team to progress over the next few years towards the dizzy ranks of the older age groups in the highly respected Junior Section at Sidmouth RFC.

Our section has seen a  steady increase in numbers over the last couple of months, bringing the registered total to 22 players, all have shown fantastic commitment and keenness to play to the best of  their ability.

With the emphasis on having fun and enjoying the game the squad has built on the skills acquired during training sessions and applied this new found knowledge to the matches played to date, we have seen convincing wins against Withycombe, Honiton and Topsham most recently in a impromptu mini festival where 5 teams played in a ‘round robin’ style tournament. Collumpton have so far been our only defeat to date, but the standard of play during this game was second to none with some very encouraging ball handling skills on display. A huge well done and pat on the back for all in the squad. Keep up the good work!!
