Sidmouth entertained one of the County’s strongest

Sidmouth U11s 0 Okehampton U11s 35

Sidmouth entertained one of the County’s strongest outfits and came up against a team system that was both proficient and well-rehearsed. In the early exchanges Sidmouth demonstrated no lack of desire and competitiveness but one or two shy tackles allowed Okey to establish a lead. Sidmouth played two mixed ability sides whilst Okey stuck resolutely to their strongest team and ruthlessly reaped the rewards of their savvy and uncompromising approach.


Rafe and Ethan , both new to the game this season, stormed ahead and made great tackles too. Sam, Josh and Lou all made dents in the opposition defence and twice our tenacious forwards were held up over the line.


The opposition supporters were very complimentary about the welcoming and fair atmosphere surrounding junior rugby at Sidmouth and the new facilities at Sidford. Thanks to the girls who ran the kitchens, supporters and all who helped out on the day. Now – back to the drawing board ….
