On Sunday Sevenoaks U11's took part in a keenly contested festival at Old Colfeians with
the flowing team:
Baker, Burgess, Francombe, Holden, Killick, Lay, Lenaghan, Lindsay, Maynard, Millett, Sayers, Wilson
The first match against Medway was the warm up for much tougher challenges to follow. Sevenoaks won 2-1 with tries from Burgess and Francombe, with everyone demonstrating strong tackling, good support play and lots of open running.
The second match could not be more different however, as the boys took on a well organised and determined team from Old Whitgiftians. Sevenoaks lost their shape and their heads went down after a difficult first half. We went into the second period already three tries down and didn’t recover, eventually losing 5-0.
The third game against long time foes Westcombe Park saw Sevenoaks reassert themselves with 2 tries from Holden and one apiece from Lay, Burgess, Lindsay and Maynard. We won 6-2 but the final tally could have been much higher.
The final match against Old Alleynians was a thrilling encounter, and we went into half time 3-1 down. The second half was one of the best of the day as the boys fought back with the game ending 3-3 with Lay grounding the ball twice to add to Holden’s.
Overall a great team performance from all the boys.
