U9 vs Chesham

Thank you to all who came along and participated at Sunday’s match – what a great morning of rugby.

We played away at Chesham RFC. They were a good, well organised side and presented themselves in a very professional way. Stockwood U9’s performed exceptionally well and played some very good rugby. As normal the attacking play was superb with a vast array of try’s scored. I saw a real improvement in the defensive work over both games and I was incredibly pleased to see the great pressure you placed on the opposition both in their half but also when defending our own try line. This resulted in many turnover opportunities which you all executed brilliantly and on some occasions scored off the back of this.

I think the fact that their coach kept asking for us to tie our shoelaces together as we were too good says it all. It was also nice to hear good feedback from the opposition at the end of the game.

Game 1 Stockwood won 9-3 and game 2 Stockwood won 6-4 – great effort.

I have to add another point about the how you all work as a team. I was so pleased to see individuals make sure others were ok during and after each game, congratulating each other and also comforting team mates when required. Thank you, fantastic team effort, really well done!

Man Of The Match Award – Adrian
A well deserved award for this little champion. He played superbly all morning. Adrian’s confidence was sky high today, his attacking play was great and he really utilised his speed in order to score some lovely try’s. I also have to mention his defensive work, executed some great tackles and stuck in when required.

Most Improved Player – Daniel
Great play from Daniel today His presence on the pitch continues to be strong and he really takes the lead in organising his teammates during games. Again, confidence is improving each week and is really looking sharp within his attacking play.
