U9 KGJS Rugby Festival

On Saturday 30th September, KGJS hosted their 3rd rugby festival in as many weeks. The festival took place at UCLAN Sports Arena on their fantastic artificial pitch. Fylde, Preston Grasshoppers and St Mary's Hall U9s attended and all teams played three matches.

This was their first experience of full contact rugby in a competitive match and all teams were eager to perform. Many lessons were learnt by coaches and players and all agreed that the standard of play was excellent from all for teams and this was also matched by every players’ sportsmanship.

Kirkham U8s drew one and lost two but on each occasion it was only by one score.

All players put in really pleasing performances but Henry was the top tackler for the day and Bertie Jones and Jack Dawson- Gerrard were the most elusive runners with ball in hand.

The next tournament is for the U8s who will play next Saturday against all the same teams plus Tarleton Rugby Club. This will complete four tournaments in four weeks for KGJS!
