U9s v Claverdon!
By Gareth Salisbury
Competitive fixture against well known opposition!
OL’s Under 9’s welcomed Claverdon RFC to Bilton School for their latest fixture last Sunday morning. From past experience, Claverdon always provide a good, competitive challenge and play rugby the way we like to, tough tackling, fast, open play and try to use all members of the team with good passing.
All three pitches provided entertaining games with results generally going the way of OL’s. Usual strong performances by our resident Stretton crew – Max B, Zach H, William H and Fraser on his return after a couple of weeks out. Good, strong running by Anderson and link up play between Finn and Max F led to a couple of nice tries. William G contributed with his pace to add some scores also.
We have a large group of Under 9’s this season who are really developing as a bunch and are a pleasure to coach. It is almost a shame to see the season drawing to an end now but we are looking forward to the last few fixtures and the festivals we have entered into.
Onwards and upwards for the mighty OL’s Under 9’s!
