Our U18s headed off to Old Alleynians in our first league match of the season. Our girls displayed some fantastic rugby on the day and worked well in a BaaBaas team with girls on loan from OAs. Great passing down the line and a good run gave Georgia our first try of the season. Well done Georgia, Hannah, Jess, Lucy, Michelle, Phoebe and Sally. (sorry girls I forgot to take a team photo!) thanks to coach Tom for his management and getting the girls focussed on the day.

With their mascot in tow, our U15s / A21s travelled yesterday to Royal Wootton Bassett to compete in a three way competition, with the winner moving to the National final.
We faced two very strong opponents, Harpenden and Kingsbridge who has stormed their way to the national semi finals, in the same way we did.
We won match one v Harpenden 10 -7 in a tight game. However, the second match was a lot tougher and closer, having lost against Kingsbridge 24-10.
Sadly this means we do not progress to the finals. Our girls can hold their heads up high as they displayed continuous determination and great sportsmanship.
unfortunately Nicole was hurt during the day - our best wishes go to her for a speedy recovery!
Congrats to Anna, Aoife, Catherine, Lillie, Kate, Millie, Olivia, Scarlett, Tori and Zoe
Two of our U18s joined a Barbars team in a festival pitting them against 2 Dartfordians teams and 1 cluster of Rochford/Thurrock.
After about 10 mins of joint training/warm ups, the Barbars bonded well which showed in their great teamwork, winning two and drawing one match.
v Darts 1: 2-1
v RTs: 1-1
v Darts 2: 4-1
Some terrific tackling and a few breakout runs resulting in several tries scored by both our girls. Well done Jess and Sally.
Our U13s travelled yesterday to Beckenham to cluster with Old Colfs, enabling them to gain vital match experience.
they played four matches, with the results as follows:
v Medway 2-3
v Aylesford 3-4
v Beckenham 3-3
v Westcombe/OAlleynians 0 - 4
The girls played really well, and continued in their determination even when losing a few matches. Special mention for Hannah’s amazing tackling. Many thanks to Tommy for inspiring coaching, making a team of them & keeping them all going!
Well done Amy, Eleanor, Hannah and Jamie
Kudos to Paul McDaid (Oaks) and Andy Smith (TWells) who combined forces to lead both U15s to where they are - Regional Area 3 cup winners! I think their smiles speak for themselves......
The Sevenoaks/Tunbridge Wells U15 cluster known as the A21’s yesterday secured a hard-fought victory over rivals Eton Manor to become the RFU Area 3 Regional Cup Champions.
Both teams came into the game unbeaten which set up what was a thrilling game of rugby that really showcased the girls game. The game itself ebbed and flowed with some good solid forward play supported by quick ball through hand running rugby and individual pieces of skill supported by solid team play.
The final score of 36-17 reflecting what a fast-paced and exciting game it was for all those privileged enough to watch it. The game was played in the true spirit of the game with fantastic displays of sportsmanship from both sides, the referee, who it has to be said had a great game commented on how much he had enjoyed the encounter.
Following on from this success the A21’s now progress to the National semi-finals which will be held on the 15th April at Royal Wootton Bassett RFC.
A special note of thanks to Old Elthamians who kindly hosted the day, providing first class facilities and excellent hospitality.
Congratulations Anna, Aoife, Catherine, Kate, Lillie, Millie, Olivia, Scarlett, Tori, Zoe!
Last Sunday saw our U13s travel to Medway to join forces with Sheppey in a festival celebrating younger aged girls rugby.
This gave our girls another opportunity to train with same aged girls and play a series of matches against various more developed teams. The Sheppey coach kindly commented on how spirited, strong and impressive our girls were on the day. So much so that we will be looking to play together again - either this season or the next!
Well done to Amy, Eleanor, Jamie and Jocelyn
With only a few players available this weekend, we joined forces with Tunbridge Wells in one of their final matches of the season. Here's a copy of the match report from TWells:
U18 won 66-5 with a some help from two of their Oaks mates in the shape of Lucy & Sally. I caught the some of the second half and the interplay and support was as good as any coach could wish for. The score doesn't give the full story, as I saw a spell of strong defence where Hove/Worthing were throwing everything at the Wells line, but the girls defended perfectly.
Last Sunday our the formidable A21s continued their success in a tense semi final versus Sutton & Epsom. Both teams played remarkably, with a score of 5-5 it remained anyone's victory. It was down to the last few minutes where Tori scored the winning try, sending the girls to the final next weekend at Old Elthamians versus Eton Manor for the regional final.
Only sad occurrence was an A21 player - Rosie - getting knocked unconscious. I have had news that after a throughout check, she is alright, but will be off as per concussion guidelines.
As one of our coaches put it "this was the toughest rugby I've seen U15s play ever!.
Well done and congratulations to Anna, Aoife, Catherine, Kate Lilly, Millie, Olivia, Scarlett, Tori (5)!
A few Sundays ago saw us travelling to the coast to brave freezing winds and lots of rain showers. Delighted to have had several girls from each age group representing Sevenoaks at this girls festival. Some great action during the mixed training sessions and proud to say all girls mixed well with their assigned team mates for the round robin matches that followed.
The Rachel Burford Academy returns to Sevenoaks - this time to the Sennocke Centre at Sevenoaks School. A great opportunity for those who missed the camp at the rugby club to give it a go, as well as those that did and loved it - to do it again!!!
Billed as a rugby taster it is a full on girls rugby camp for all age group girls.

Last Sunday saw yet another dominant performance by our U15s/A21s squad (with TWells) at the regional cup competition match at home v Horsham, with a 50-0 victory.
Solid skill and teamwork led to this incredible result.
Kudos must be given to the Horsham players, coaches and parents who not only played on in good spirits, but never gave up in determination to continue the opportunity to gain valuable match experience and cheer on their team.
Well done to Oaks girls: Anna, Aoife, Catherine, Kate, Lilly, Millie, Olivia, Scarlett, Tori.
the A21 cluster team Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells U15s stormed their way through the competition, having scored 105 points and conceded 0. The scores were: 50-0 v Dartfordians, 24-0 v Old Alyenians, 31-0 v Aylesford & Medway.
Amazing effort - especially considering the freezing windy conditions.
Congratulations to Anna, Aoife, Millie, Catherine, Kate, Lilly, Olivia, Scarlett, Tori, Zoe, thanks to coaches Paul McDaid, Andy Smith, Helen and Tom assisting.
4 of our U18s braved the freezing winds to enter the Kent Cup Competition. Sadly we did not have enough for a team on the day so joined up with Tunbridge Wells and Thanet to have the opportunity to play. Both teams put in formidable performances, however were outplayed on the day by strong opposition. Well done Jess, Lucy, Phoebe and Sally
