A sterling performance saw them narrowly pipped to the group win that would have taken them through to the semi finals.
Crowborough made a quick start with 2 early break away tries. But Shoreham responded well to only trail by 1 at the halfway stage.
The second half was a breathless affair with both sides trading scores and Shoreham managing to get on level terms with seconds to go only to be hit with a last ditch break away try that clinched it for Crowborough 7 – 6. This was by a margin the best rugby that the Shoreham under 8’s have played this season.
The final game of the pool saw East Grinstead pay for the frustrating result inflicted by Crowborough. Shoreham found their stride racking up early scores which took the pressure off the final result. To their great credit they kept up their intensity to the final whistle to run comfortable 6 – 2 winners.
The squad of Luke, Reuban, Frankie, Cassie, Raphael Thomas K, Thomas M, Logan and Stan were a real credit to their club. Although rugby is much more about the team effort than any individual contribution a special mention must be made of Thomas Mollee’s magnificent try tally, 8 from 3 games.
