U8's Sidmouth vs Chard

On a crisp Sunday morning Sidmouth played host to the travelling Chard. Expectations were high for the home side, so far enjoying an unbeaten run. 

On the sheet today were Taylor Whitehead, Ned Coles, Oliver Marsh, Luca Manning, Toby Sandford, Zac & Luca Arver. 

Chard were immediately off the mark and the Sidmouth boys responded well with Oliver marsh going over for the first try.  Chard kept going into touch and this provided the ball for Sidmouth to make advances. Luca Manning scoring the next try and then Ned Coles went over for his first. The game was end to end with plenty of bursting runs from both teams, Luca Arver was next on the score sheet and then Luca Manning picked up his second try of the game. 

Luca Arver scored the only try of the second half with one of his dazzling side stepping runs. After 20 minutes of thrilling play the final whistle was blown at Sidmouth 30 Chard 20. 

Chard proved to be the most testing of competition, but well done to Sidmouth for the win. Next week back to training before an away fixture in December with Topsham.
