U12’s Tournament Triumph
Canterbury U12’s won the London South East U12’s Tournament at Richmond today. Phenomenal performances scoring 22 tries and conceding only 1. Group stage victories against Wimbledon, Oxford and Barnes put them through to the semi-final against Battersea and then a final against Chobham. A great start to their first youth competitive tournament.
Girls section grows strong
welcoming U12’s to U18’s girls, and building from a smaller but passionate revitalised girls playing section of the club has gone from strength to strength. Under the leadership of Team Manager Becky McCracken and a coaching team staffed by members of the senior women’s team. With women’s rugby increasingly in the spotlight, the timing could not be better for girls rugby in East Kent. They even made it onto the RFU website – https://www.englandrugby.com/news/article/much-to-celebrate-in-girls-rugby
