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.

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

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!

bring on 2017/18

Sunday 3rd September saw lots of girls and coaches - old and new alike - all dusting off their boots and enjoying passing and tackling drills.  Great to see and meet new members of our rugby family and of course the smiling yet tired girls at the end of the session.  Looking forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday 5th at 6 pm for fitness, games and a bit of theory.

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.

U15 Girls fought a tough match in Plate Semi Final!

U15 Girls fought a tough match in Plate Semi Final!

with guest coach TK (thank you!) our girls found fierce opposition in Thurrock/Rochford at last weekend's Area 3 U15s Plate semi final.  Facing an unbeaten scrum front line they were able to retain the ball a few times and pushed through the line to score two tries; one of which was a fantastic run half way down the pitch by Maddie.  A further conversion gave us a total score of 12. Our girls put up a strong defence against Thurrock/Rochford, who proved too much in the end scoring a total of 45.  In the face of some physical and verbal challenges our girls held their own and were a true credit to SRFC - in particular Jess; you know why :-).

The team consisted of: Maddie Bryan (5), Kate Crudgington, Olivia Crudgington, Catherine Davies (5), Katie Kelly, Phoebe Leach (2), Sasha Petrie, Jess Richards, Ellie Schwemm, Sally Williams

skills & drills in the frost!

Our U13s and U15s braved the freezing cold last weekend to visit Tunbridge Wells for a shortened training session which included lots of skills in drills.  Excellent opportunity for U13s girls to start working alongside the TW U13s in their newly formed Barbars team!

U15s end the year in a tough match against Ashford

One final challenge this year for our U15s proved to be a tough end to the year.  Against a very formidable Ashford team, our U15 girls put in a solid performance, some excellent tackles and passing down the line.   A well deserved 3-week break lies ahead - see you in the new year!
