U10s vs Sedbergh Tues 19/9.
A pleasing win in Kirkham’s first game of the season. Man of the match was Jenson Stott.
On Saturday , 23 September
, Kirkham hosted their second rugby tournament of the season. This week it was the turn of the u10s. Once again, Fylde, Preston Grasshoppers and St Marys Hall took part. All matches were played in a tremendous spirit which again epitomises the rugby culture which exists between all the teams taking part.
For all teams, it was their first experience of having a scrum and many lessons were learnt by players and coaches.
Kirkham juniors were very pleased with their performances having won two and drew one out of their three matches.
George Godbold ran well with the ball and his passing and tackling improved throughout the morning. Jenson Crompton again tackled everything that moved! Alex Davies was superb with ball in hand and his tackling was excellent. Callum Sumner is, without doubt, the most improved player in all areas of the game. Freddie Stott had a solid game and is playing with greater confidence. James singleton continues to work really hard and made some important tackles. William de - Klerk was very elusive when put into space and his tackling is improving. Christian Taylor- Tomlinson ran very strongly and is developing a greater understanding of the game. Harry Glanfield linked well in attack and his defence improved. Michael Gillett made excellent progress in attack and his defence was very strong.
Overall a very pleasing performance in all games. Kirkham would like to thank all the teams for making it such an enjoyable morning of rugby.
Next saturday is the turn of the u9s who will be playing contact rugby for the first time!
