U10s enjoy their rugby at Middlesex Festival
Grasshoppers U10 entered 2 teams in the Middlesex Festival this year hosted by Ruislip RFC. All players turned up on time and rearing to go.

The B team won all their pool games against Harrow, Chiswick and Kilburn. Saracens were a no show. We drew in the semi final against Old Grammarians but won on countback. This game was brutal and challenging for both team. Final score 1-1. Great last ditch tackling, great defense, great contest for the ball and despite the low score this was an amazing and close game.
We ended in the Shield Final against Rosslyn Park. The children fought well but Rosslyn Park were too strong at the end. B team were Runners up in the festival.

The Development Team however missed out on a few games losing by a couple of points in the pool but still managed to get to the Final. They played really well, and put up a good performance with good passing, good communication and ended up winning the Final.The children were over the moon as for most of them, this was their first competition. Development Team won the Middlesex Vase.

We are really proud of them all.

Well done to all the players involved.

Development Team (Aiden, Emily, Kai, Carlos, Mikaeel, Billy, Pablo and Jude)
