It was a cold overcast morning for the Sussex Mini’s Under 7’s tournament at Haywards Heath RFC but still Shoreham had a exceptional turnout of players. Even with cold fingers and toes fun was had by all in a very well run festival.
Players: Aaron, Alfie, Harry, Jack, Lexus, Noah, Ralph, Richard & William.
Haywards Heath (1) 10. v Shoreham 4.
Shoreham got off to a flying start however Haywards Heath hit back hard and fast to overpower them with impressive interceptions and turnovers. Try’s from Harry, Richard & Ralph (2).
Hove (1) 9. v Shoreham 6.
The second match started with fast movement and passing setting up Jack for many a dash for the try line, the score stayed level toing & froing until a few cold fingers could not get a tight grasp on Hove’s tags, a closely fought match. Try’s from Jack (6)
Horsham (1) 9. v Shoreham 8.
Great passing and catching, the hands now warm, hardly a ball was dropped but alas Horsham just pipped the win with the final play in the game. Try’s from Richard, William, Noah, Alfie & Jack (4)
Crawley (1) 5. v Shoreham 6
A match that was all about defence for both teams, neither wanted to give anything away, however Shoreham threw in some magnificent tags and passing to edge their first win of the day. Try’s from Richard, Jack, Harry & William (3)
Crawley (1) 8 v Shoreham 12
Through to the playoff for 5th spot Shoreham faced Crawley (1) for a rematch of the hard fought win. Shoreham stepped to the field and switched the previous defensive tactic to attack. They ducked and dodged around the pitch dancing down the touch line for a convincing victory. Try’s from Aaron, William, Alfie, Lexus (2), Jack (3) & Ralph (4)
