Southwold Rugby Club Under 14s become Eastern Counties Champions
30th April 2019
As proud sponsors of the Youth section of Southwold Rugby Club, we are pleased to announce that the Under 14s became Eastern Counties Champions at the weekend. The first youth group to achieve this at Southwold.
A huge congratulations to the boys and everyone involved.
Today Southwold Rugby Club hosted the U14’s Eastern Counties Final, this was a three way competition between Norfolk Cup winners Norwich, Cambridgeshire Cup winners Huntingdon and Suffolk Cup winners Southwold.
The first game saw Southwold beat Norwich 19-6. Norwich then played Huntingdon which saw Huntingdon win 25-7 setting up a final game between Southwold and Huntingdon in which the winner would be crowned Eastern Counties Champion.
It was a hard fought game in which Southwold took an early lead but Huntingdon came back in the second half to bring it back to 12-12, another well worked try by Southwold brought the score to 17-12 and although Huntingdon were pressurising the Southwold line in the remaining few minutes the Southwold defence held and the final score was 17-12.
All three teams entertained the crowd with some fantastic rugby. Thanks to all the teams, coaches, parents and supporters for a great Final and to Robert Temple from Eastern Counties for attending to present the trophy.
