U12's at Luctonians Anglo Welsh festival
By Rob Huxley
A tough festival.
A smaller than normal squad travelled the long distance to the festival at Luctonians. A special thanks to Rob and Freddie Timmis who bolted down to make up our numbers.
With no subs the boys Made a strong start beating a good Telford team 3-2.
Next up were a very impressive Welsh team from Bridgend. We lost a tight game 2-1 but this was in many ways our best performance, losing to a team who went on to the final ( and may have won? We had left by then).
The next game is best forgotten as we were easily beaten by the hosts, Luctonians.
Our final group match saw us back to winning ways, beating Bridgenorth 2-0.
We finished third in our group and lost the third placed playoff to another unpronounceable Welsh outfit by 1 try to nil.
This was a difficult tournament against some strong opposition and may be the wake up call we need before our own upcoming festival.
