YC U11 team win Milner Cup
12th February 2015

The Under 11 Colts Rugby 7s squad performed magnificently at the Milner Cup 7s Tournament held at Junior Kings Canterbury on Wednesday 11th February.

Following some outstanding performances in the group stage where they conceded only one try, they faced New Beacon in the semi-final.  Victory there set up a final against King's Rochester.  

The final was a tense and hard-hitting affair with neither side prepared to concede a try and at the end of full-time the score remained nil-nil. This set up a thrilling "sudden death" scenario where the first try scored in extra-time would signal victory.  Our YC boys showed tremendous spirit, tenacity and skill and, following several thwarted attacks, the ball made its way to Fin Croll who finished off a glorious afternoon with a stunning and decisive try.

Congratulations to all ten boys who were part of this squad - this was a superb effort by one and all!
