U12s at Bournemouth Festival
By Angela Mouland
U12s travel with the Minis down the road to Bournemouth for the last fixture of the season.
The Under 12s had a great tournament today in the sun, finishing a fantastic season on a high.
They started with a tough opening game vs Totts winning 2- 1 followed by a very physical game against The Bank of England team winning 4-2 where footwork and running rugby won the game.
We played a great-natured game vs Fawley winning 6-0 with all the squad playing great open rugby, especially in the second half.
Our last game was some of the most passionate rugby ever seen played in a Fordingbridge shirt, vs Old Cranleighan. The lads were behind twice against this very big and talented team 1-0 then 2-1 but the handing, footwork and relentless tackling dragged them back with amazing leadership from Will Ingram and unbelievable power from Connor Lee finishing the game winning 5-2.
The season for the U12s has reflected the commitment from the players, where they have played 46 games.
They have scored 164 tries and conceded 46.
