The U10A team (Year 5) took part in the U10 Rugby Festival at Sutton Valence school on Friday, 24 February 2023.

The New Beacon played four games against Hilden Grange, Sevenoaks Prep, Sutton Valence Prep and Somerhill, winning all four games and coming away with the best defensive record and was in equal first place, with Solefields, for the most number of tries scored. In this festival, there is no overall first place but three trophies awarded for Best Defensive play, Best Attacking play and a Sportsmanship award.

Having conceded only two tries in their four games, The New Beacon won the Best Defensive Play trophy.

The boys played very well; our tackling was strong, our offensive play was quick and decisive and all games were played in good spirit. Every boy played their part today and there were some wonderful passages of play. Thanks go to the parental support as well.

The U10A Squad: Myles C (Capt), Joe W, Arthur L, Sebastian M, Olivier B, Jack W, Jacob D, Michael P and Joshua M.
