Veseyans U9’s fielded two sides against the Aston Old Edwardians visiting team. The opposition were physically much bigger but that just made the tackles go in harder and lower, with some excellent tackling from Spence Lloyd, Tom Howell, Luke Byrne and Joshua Moseley.

In addition to a fantastic defensive effort, there was some great passing and use of running lines as a team, especially off-loading in the tackle when the support was available.

There were also some exceptional individual skills and running from Archie Strachan, Daniel Brooke, Harry Gwilliam and Noah Millar, who all made some amazing breaks and touched down several times between them.

A warm welcome was offered to the visitors, who were very complimentary of our team, and support for all the kids was evident as everyone cheered and appreciated the good rugby being played by both sides in great spirit.
