GMS Player Registration16th October 2023
Dear all Please ask all players/guardians to ensure they are registered on the RFU GMS site. Players who are not affiliated can’t play in cup…
After a week or so without any rugby due to the weather, we welcomed Exeter Athletic to the club.
We have great numbers and supportive parents who bring their kids to matches whether home or away in this age group so a special thanks from the coaching team to them. It makes improvement in the players much easier to achieve when all the kids are able to make training and the matches every week but more than that, it proves to us that the kids all enjoying playing the game and want to be with us rain or shine.
We had 21 and Exeter had 8 so we split into two matches of 7 a side with them having 1 sub. We had an inter club game on one pitch and us V them on another, with all 3 of our teams playing a match against Exeter, games of 5 minute halves
As all the coaches who have coached this age group know, its about getting to grips with the very basic aspects, tagging, passing the ball backwards whilst running forwards, looking for space and remembering to stay onside (this one needs work ?).
We had great support today in the sunshine from both clubs, plenty of clapping and positive encouragement.
