19 November update

Today all age groups were away at Beckenham; joining with girls from other clubs for training and friendly matches. 

U13s: joined with Dartford and came up against some stronger teams but kept going in the face of adversity.  They enjoyed it as they had an easier match 3, where they were able to score a few tries.

U15s linked with Old Colfs enjoying the ability to play in a larger team as we had several girls away at a Kent match. They immediately got stuck in with their temporary team mates.

U18s: mixed with a host of clubs to play a 14-a side match against Medway.  Our girls played against much bigger girls and held themselves well.

All girls came away smiling at the end of the day and the coaches all agreed it was great to see the girls making new friends and playing to their strengths.

5 November U13 and U15s match report

Both our U13s and U15s travelled to Dartfordians in the next round of the Kent cup competition.

Our U13s had further opportunities to train with girls from other clubs, which followed friendly matches. Well done Amy, Eleanor and Jocelyn

Our U15s joined T Wells as the A21s cluster group and faced Dartfordians.  A formidable performance put in by all the A21s really gave the opposition no where to go.  With a final score of 73 (A21s) - 0 this cluster is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

This day gave lots of girls from various clubs the ideal opportunity to get stuck in and play some great rugby. 

Well done Aoife, Catherine, Lillie, Millie, Scarlett, Tori and Zoe

5 November U18s match report

Today our girls played  AWAY at Beccehamians in the next round of the Kent cup competition.  Joined with some girls from Beckenham, they faced an older and well disciplined cluster team of Beccs & Old Alleynians.

After a slow start and a few tries against them, our girls started to defend well with some great tackles against this formidable team.  However, with the result of 37 Beccs/OAs - 0 7oaks/Beckenham our girls came away smiling and tired, but not defeated in spirit.

Upcoming training will enable them to work on some weaknesses identified as well as continue to build on their strengths.

Player of the week: Fran for a sterling effort at one of her first matches away this season.

Well done Diana, Fran,Jess, Katie, Katie, Lucy, Phoebe and Sally

29 October Coaching the coaches!

Our dedicated coaches Paul, Christopher, Tommy and Mark all got stuck in at 8:30 this morning, as part of our club initiative to share and filter down a consistent coaching methodology.  Fun to see them in their shorts n boots running, tackling and passing the ball with around 30 other club coaches from all the age groups. 

All geared up to introduce new training for our girls! thanks guys!

22 October match report

Today saw our girls from all age groups AWAY at Dartfordians to attend a Pitch up and Play / Festival, which allowed the girls over an hour of competitive rugby.

I heard our 4 U13s and 5 U15s got well stuck into their mixed group of players.  Even though there were a few minor injuries the girls enjoyed themselves and continued until the end of the day.

We had 6 under 18s from Sevenoaks and were supported by 4 players from Ashford under 18s who were a credit to themselves. The Sevenoaks girls applied themselves whole-heartedly to every game, bar the first five minutes of the first game. Great lines of running, clearing out and continuity play were evident all day. I hate to say it but they all seem to have enjoyed themselves and were fairly happy with the way they played. We also tried to play a type of game play with a fair bit of consistency.  The girls played five matches with the following results. 

Darts 4  v SOaks 3

T/Wells and westcombe Park 2 v SOaks 3

Darts/ Beccs 0 v SOaks3

Thanet/ Old Colfs / Beccs 2SOaks 3

The last game saw us play a well drilled and committed Medway team. The girls again played really well and showed no signs of fatigue and battled all the way. the could have won but lost out by a last play try by Medway.

 

Well done to all girls!

Today gave our U15 girls the ideal opportunity to train and play matches as part of the A21 cluster group with TWells against Sutton& Epsom and Hove.  I was told our girls mixed in well and played some formidable rugby by one of the TWells coaches.

Some of our U13 and U18 girls joined in the day too, through mixed training and friendly Tri-angular matches.

A good day all round!

8 OCT update: Play to your strengths

Yesterday gave us the opportunity to host U13, U15 and U18 girls from Folkestone, Westcombe Park and Tunbridge Wells for a joint mixed training session followed by friendly matches. The training gave us all an ideal opportunity to focus on age group specific skills and drills.  Mixing up all 10 coaches from the various clubs offered the 50+ girls another voice and coaching style too.  Where possible we kept to club during the matches, however inevitably we mixed up some girls from clubs to ensure every girl played the match.

Friends and family had a pleasant afternoon in the sunshine too. 

A good day with the exception of one of our players being injured right at the end.  Happy to report she is at home recovering with no broken bones.  We all wish her well and hope to see her on the pitch again very soon!

match report 1 October 2017

This afternoon our U13, U15 and U18 girls enjoyed a variety of skills sessions, drills and friendly matches led by a range of coaches from a number of clubs at Aylesford.

This pitch up and play (PUP) was run by both the RFU and the Kent RFU with one aim in mind:  getting as many girls enjoying rugby as possible.  With a wide range of skills on the day it a pleasure to see our girls be great ambassadors of the club and the sport as they allgot stuck in and worked well with their combined teams of the day.

U13s enjoyed a great morning training session dedicated to them. Focussing on rugby fundamentals with particular emphasis on contact.  Our new assistant coach Tom got stuck in pretty quickly too! Hannah, Jocelyn, Jamie, Cully, Felicity, Alice, Amy, Dot, Eleanor (and our new U18 - Diana)

U15s/cluster with TWells had a great session 'smashing' Aylesford/Ashford 65-10 in their cluster match.  Looking forward to an exciting season. Well done all girls!

U18s faced an experienced team of strong players in a match against Thanet.  Our girls were nervous about this match, and it showed.  Some great running and tackling though with our girls, as ever, working together towards the end.  Thanet 20 - Sevenoaks 10.  Georgia L, Ellie S, Sally (5), Jess, Lucy (5), Maddie, Katie L, Katie K, Fran, Georgia P, Phoebe.

10th September report

Our U18s trained at home and our U13s/U15s went to TW to face Ashford.

U13s: The girls did some useful contact warming up then played some great rugby under the watchful eye of our very own Paul McDaid.  Good work from new and old alike with some solid passing and running down the pitch.

U15s: The girls ran ragged over Ashford beating them 31-10 with 5 tries split across the clustered Oaks & Wells girls, with some solid conversions by Katie.  Given the number of ex/trialling Kent players we have, it was always going to be good and the newer members of the squad certainly added some more quality to what is looking like a formidable team.  Fine teamwork girls!

Girls toughest tacklers at Saracens Rugby camp

5 SRFC girls attended the Saracens rugby camp which gave them 2 full on days of pre-season training.  Dusting the cobwebs off their mighty oaks kit the girls enjoyed drills involving passing, rucking, touch and contact matches.  A few of the coaches commented on how impressive their tackling skills were.  Well done Catherine, Ellie, Jess, Sally and Zoe.

Bring on the new season!

#INNERWARRIOR event success at SRFC

On Aug 23rd 18 girls, ranging from the ages of 9 – 15 all found their #INNERWARRIOR at Sevenoaks RFC.  We were delighted to see a wide range of girls on the day; from beginners, to club players, to county and regional players alike: all working together and having fun whilst learning and/or enhancing a variety of skills. All agree the DISCO TOUCH Rugby was by far the best and most exciting game of the night. Glow in the dark headbands are definitely making a comeback!

We would like to thank all those that joined us on the day and look forward to welcoming our girls back to SRFC on 3rd September for kick off of the new season!

U15s enjoyed Uckfield visit Sunday 26th

last Sunday saw our U15s visit Uckfield to join them and Hove in a 3-way match.  Unfortunately Sevenoaks had smaller numbers, so were happy to be split up between the two teams to form a 13 a side match on the day.

Some terrific running, tackling and of course lots of tries scored by our girls - who thought it fun to tackle eachother in opposing shirts!  well done Anna Jones, Catherine Davies, Katie Kelly, Phoebe Leach, Sally Williams and Sasha Petrie.
