Sidmouth U10 7 - Withycombe 0

5th October 2014

After 4 weeks training, a strong Sidmouth U 10’s team came to the first game of the season against an equally focused Withycombe team.

The game started with much enthusiasm and great tackling from all, in particular Freddie Barker, Will Cockayne-Cottrell, Laurence Walker, Thomas Fletcher and Oliver Mitchell. 


The ball was played well with good communication and passing; there were great runs from Will Crick and Ryan Cozens whose excellent running lead to him scoring the first 3 tries;  Gabe Roberts build on that with great straight running to the line, scoring a further 2 tries for Sidmouth.  Louis Cornish whose excellent passing also gave him the opportunity to score one try and Freddie Barker scoring the last try giving a Sidmouth a confident win 7-0 for their first game. 

The whole team contributed to a good win with all players getting the ball and passing it to good effect.  Laurence Walker was voted Man of the Match for his “all round good play”.

A second game was enjoyed in mixed up teams which combined with coaching from both coaches was a useful opportunity for both teams.  Thanks to Withycombe for a great game.
