Sunday 18th October saw the EG U13's squad travel away to Uckfield for their second warm up match of the season. Uckfield being an A League team were selected to offer a stiffer opposition in our preparation for the League Games nearly upon us.
Against Uckfield, with a historically stronger pack, the game plan was simple, slick hands, teamwork & run the ball !!
Well in my absence I have no idea what was said in the team talk, but the coaches and the Team once again stirred themselves to provide what I've been told was some scintillating Rugby. Post match messages from supporters have come flooding in from across the globe; "amazing team performance", "awesome team performance!"...
From the reports... 80% of play was spent in the Uckfield half of the pitch, Possession went strongly in favor of EG - 2 Tries in the first half (James Young, Andrew Burns), 2 Tries in the second (Andrew Burns Ryan Trotter) and a penalty and the final score was 23 to Nil in favor of EG.
MoM, Coaches could not decide so left it with the Team to nominate.
Unanimously, they could not decide on an individual so united they decided that winning the game was reward enough for all !!
Now more hard work to be done for the Season ahead.
Well done boys !!!
