Chichester rugby boys enjoy Vectis victory

Chichester under-tens finished their fantastic season with an all-conquering Isle of Wight Vectis Festival tournament victory.

With a large squad of players, the boys had four games in their pool, beating Vectis, Trojans, Briton Ferry and Romsey comfortably - with 13 tries scored and only one conceded.

At unbeaten pool winners, they advanced to the semi-finals for a very physical game against Beckenham which they won 3-1.

A last huge effort from all the boys came in the final against Beccehamians, who were a physically imposing team.

Chichester flew out the blocks and never let Beccehamians get out of their own half, putting two tries past them to win the game 2-0.

Twenty teams played in the under-tens event and as usual the Chichester defence were almost completely unbreakable with only two tries scored against them in six matches.

It was a long hard day of rugby but Chichester were delighted to carry home the trophy.
