This was the U13’s first start of the season and a very special moment for the team when walking out, to play on the home pitch of Fordingbridge Rugby Club for the very first time. Our visitors, Lytchett Minster, and their strong, competitive rugby ensured this was an enjoyable day for all involved.
Both sides showed great spirit, of which this friendly fixture produced a score of 9 to 7 with the Bridge coming out on top.
The U13’s commitment & determination during tough pre-season training clearly showed in which a very physical Lytchett side, were met by a Fordingbridge side very happy to compete, both in tackling or running hard at defence.
With the final whistle blown, Lytchett again proved why they are such worthy opponents, quickly forming a tunnel and congratulating Bridge players…..fantastic to see and a great start to the season.
