Sidmouth Vs Exmouth U7s

IMG 6099

Exmouth as one of the largest club’s in the area are always a pleasure to host at Sidmouth as they, like ourselves, are blessed with a great intake of new players each year to our game and able to match the 5 teams that the Under 7s were able to muster this week. This number of players shows that Rugby is a highly popular sport throughout East Devon and also shows great enthusiasm of our youngest junior teams to travel locally as well as thanks to the band of parents that bring their children along, week on week come rain and shine.

Sidmouth U7 teams this week had mixed fortunes across the many games played with both sides able to impress with displays of some good basic rugby skills. Exmouth on this occasion proved to be the stronger of the teams wining the majority of the matches, leaving the Sidmouth’s coaches some things to work on over the next few weeks of training ahead of our games against Topsham and Cullompton.

Sidmouth Player of the day was awarded to new recruit Chloe Wray who provided an entertaining display of precision passing, top rate tagging whilst also sharing the captaincy of the all girls team consisting of Beth Kent , Elsie Wiltshire, Evie Fudge and Maddie Russell

Notable play from Jonno Fletcher stood out again for some darting runs as did Zac Dunstan, Henry Ritchie , Ewan Kirk and Noah Helm who teamed up to run in a number of well worked tries.

With 60 + players involved across both teams the true overall winner being Rugby itself.

Our thanks go to Exmouth RFC for making the day an enjoyable experience for all involved.
