Bristling with pride our triumphant Year 7 and 8 mixed rugby team have recently been crowned Millbrook Rugby Club all School Champions!
The team, resplendent in their newly-designed Caterbury rugby shirts, completed the four week series undefeated.
As part of our involvement in the RFU’s ‘All Schools’ programme, we have been taking part in a weekly five school tournament at Millbrook RFC. Each week we have formed a team made up of Year 7 and 8 students, all new to rugby, to take to the battlefield against our local rivals: Redbridge, Regents Park, Cantell and Oasis Lordshill.
At the start of play yesterday we were leading the table by five points, but with five points awarded for a win it was imperative we didn’t let our standards slip. The first fixture against Redbridge ended in a draw with two tries apiece, but we regained composure and romped to victory in our final two games against Oasis and Regents Park respectively to take the overall championship with an eleven point lead over the 2nd placed team.
A magnificent achievement by all the boys and our first rugby trophy!
Congratulations to squad representatives from Year 7: Ryan Brown, Jacky Li, Mohammed Chowdhary, Ethan Munday, Adam Falkowski, Stefan Hristosov, Josh Glasspool, Filip Prus, and Ben Puleo and from Year 8: Tom Brokenshire, Will Carrington, Henry Rowden, Joe Sherliker, Will Hyde, Dan May, Karim Arahji, Allan Pope and Toby Budd.
