Touch Summer League Finals
The exciting Miles & Barr Touch Rugby Summer League came to an end mid July, with Premiership and Championship plates and cups at stake. For seven weeks, sixteen teams of mixed ages have been battling it out every Wednesday evening over forty-minute games at the Marine Travel Ground. Each game was hard-fought, faced-paced, and played in the best spirit. There was certainly a lot of laughter, but on the field of play it was deadly serious, and all were focused on the opposing try line.
All who participated by sponsoring, organising, officiating, or playing deserve praise for the way in which the season ran and the spirit in which the games were played. When the dust finally settled, all that was left to do was hail the winners and celebrate with all the participants, match officials, organisers, and supporters.
Championship Plate Winners: Hawaii Try-O
Championship Cup Winners: Human Touch
Championship MVPs: Will Rayner and Vicky O’Sullivan
Premiership Plate Winners: Horndogs
Premiership Cup Winners: Invicta
Premiership MVPs: Dan Eaglestone and Mille Knight
Winners were presented with their coveted prizes by the Club President, Greg Mayne, who said of the event
“The Touch section of the Club is hugely popular and successful, with a large number of players taking part, many of whom are playing or coaching at national level in different age group categories. The commitment of players, coaches, referees, and above all, the tournament organisers, must be applauded, and the continued growth of the Touch section will be supported by the Club.”
Suzy Wilson, Touch section Chair added
‘’Seeing so many people enjoying playing touch makes all the organisation worth it! We also had lots of new referees stepping up to help out which is great. Looking forward to next year! ‘’
A huge thank you to Miles & Barr for their generous sponsorship of the Touch Rugby Summer League.
